I miss the times when I used to pick the books to read by browsing around the library or bookstore for hours and not because of their hype or sales rank or goodreads rating.

"But luxury has never appealed to me, I like simple things, books, being alone, or with somebody who understands."
Daphne du Maurier (via girlinlondon)
"Autumnal language: fullness and falling
away from the tree of self,"
Gregory Orr, from section 3 of “The Tree,” in The Caged Owl: New & Selected Poems (Copper Canyon Press, 2002)
"This book, when I am dead, will be
A little faint perfume of me.
People who knew me well will say,
She really used to think that way."
Edna St. Vincent Millay, Collected Poems (via booksquoteslove)

"It’s sort of weird if you think about it. We live in a pretty apathetic age, yet we’re surrounded by an enormous amount of information about other people. If you feel like it, you can easily gather that information about them. Having said that, we still hardly know anything about people."
Haruki Murakami, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage  (via afternoon—-tea)


The Print Making Bible (by Sergey Sus)

"What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore it knows it’s not fooling a soul."
Neil Gaiman, American Gods (via kushandwizdom)


I left my boyfriend alone in my room for a moment and he’s asked what he was supposed to do while he’s waiting. I tossed Harry Potter to him. he, a person who does not read much, is now engrossed.
