I really like finding book blogs and author blogs. They make me so happy. It’s like, “Oh my goodness. Another being on this earth enjoys the same things as me. But wait, they like it in an entirely different way.

What better way to bond than with books? Can you imagine reading a book, handing to one of these other blog owners and just being like, “So, did you imagine this part like this?” And them turning it completely around and making an entirely different visualization from the same words on a page.

Books rule.

findinghomeinabook:

I will never cease to be amazed by books. Seriously. Just think about it: thousands of people read the same book but in each one’s mind the characters look different and the setting changes and we’re all reading the same thing but it’s so unique to each of us. That is insanely cool.

I have recently realized that I am completely and totally desperate for a fandom for the book trilogy Across the Universe, so if you happen to see this and you post about this series, please like or reblog so I can check out your blog. Thank you!!!

A Very Small Diving Board

theartofnotwriting:

This is a very short list, far from comprehensive, but I wanted to post it anyway— sometimes the sea of books that exist, even YA books, is so large and murky that we aren’t sure how to navigate it and we default to reading the same kinds of books we’ve already been exposed to. But if you have a…

is it bad that I’m kind of in love with a book character and I’m actually like having dreams about them even though I don’t know what exactly they look like?? I’m basically using the picture in my head and having dreams about them omg that’s so weird

SPOILERS FOR PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT HAVE READ ALL OF THE ACROSS THE UNIVERSE TRILOGY BY BETH REVIS!!!
I usually try to avoid posting things that I have done myself, but since this is FROM a book, I thought I’d give it a shot. 
This started as a doodle and then I saw a post by the lovely bethrevis and caught a little bug. This bug told me to draw Amy from Across the Universe. But I’ve already drawn Amy (albeit cryogenically frozen) and thought, why not draw both Amy AND Elder? And then I thought, why not add Orion into the mix. But how?!
Thus, the image before you was born! I drew Amy and Elder viewing Orion as he is frozen in the cryogenic chamber (which was a very bad idea on Amy and Elder’s parts, considering Orion wasn’t properly prepared. But whatever. They panicked). 
I tried to make Elder a little less angry (like Amy is) and a little more forlorn. (Might I mention that since I do not often draw people of colour other than pasty white like myself that drawing and shading Elder was quite the trial?)
So, yeah. Here’s Amy and Elder!
