BOZo BOOKS

In my 20's. A lover of books, and the subsequent universes they create... Favourite book would have to be 'The Great Gatsby' by F Scott Fitzgerald, followed by 'High Fidelity' by Nick Hornby...

Talk about an afternoon delight!

Tolkien was able to draw.

When J.R.R. Tolkien wrote The Hobbit, he was already an accomplished amateur artist, and drew illustrations for his book while it was still in manuscript. The Hobbit as first printed had ten black-and-white pictures, two maps, and binding and dust jacket designs by its author. Later, Tolkien also painted five scenes for color plates, which comprise some of his best work. His illustrations for The Hobbit add an extra dimension to that remarkable book, and have long influenced how readers imagine Bilbo Baggins and his world.

The Joy of Books (X)

(Source: kathleendid, via letmereadinpeace)

“People don’t realize how a man’s whole life can be changed by one book.”

Books, books and books…by NotKnownPerson

“Book culture is in far less peril than many choose to assume, for the notion of an imperiled book culture assumes that book culture is a beast far more refined, rarified, and fragile than it actually is. By defining books as against technology, we deny our true selves, we deny the power of the book. Let’s restore to publishing its true reputation, not as a hedge against the future, not as a bulwark against radical change, not as a citadel amidst the barbarians, but rather as the future at hand, as the radical agent of change, as the barbarian.”

—   Richard Nash (via quotecatalog)
