This week’s #booksofmanycolors prompt by @trinna_writes is Metallic books. As I told her, I discovered I am apparently not attracted to shiny things! Almost nothing outside of my kitchen is metallic, and of course, being a mostly paperback reader, they tend not to be either. But I was able to gather up these four, and though you can’t see the gilded design on the “Whodunnits...”, it is there. Swipe to see how my lovely assistants tried to help me as I displayed my books on the floor initially (the sun was so bright it was throwing reflections off the books!). 🤩 However, my lovely assistants’ tails proved to be a hazard to my standing book pose. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #booksofmanycolours #bookstagram #books #bookaesthetic #bookpose #classicliterature #catstagram #bookishcats

JULIETA "Nasce o amor desse ódio que arde? Vi sem saber, ao saber era tarde. Louco parto de amor houve comigo, Tenho agora de amar meu inimigo."

It's Steinbeck's b-day so here's my ever-growing collection. Happy birthday to the GOAT 🎉🎉 . "It has always seemed strange to me...The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.” ― Cannery Row . #bookstagram #johnsteinbeck #steinbeck #americanlit #americanliterature #classicliterature #classiclit #classicbooks #vintagebooks #instabooks #bookworm #booklover #booknerd #bibliophile #goodreads

From “The Twilight of the Idols: or How to Philosophize with a Hammer.” First: How awesome is that title? Nietzsche's idea that hardship is not alleviated by reducing the burden of life, but by increasing our conviction to bear it with purpose strikes a chord. || For the illustration, a constellation is depicted in the shape of a globe. The hand reaching across the star map reveals a figure who willingly bears the weight.

The more I read of the writings of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the more enamoured I grow with the way of it. A strange lyricism mercifully far removed from, say, the near-insufferable melodrama of Goethe - yet with a clarity of endeavor rivalling in intent even the poignant terseness of Hemingway and his ilk. The kind of riveting elegance that neatly pins back the curtain upon the human condition and demands some manner of meaningful scrutiny. Mesmerizing! I did however manage to set down my book long enough to finish my latest drawing - here is a quick snapshot. #currentlyreading #bookish #literature #bookworm #bookshelf #pencilart #antoinedesaintexupery #classicliterature #penguinbooks #surrealart #surrealism #aviation #figurativeart #darkart #pencildrawings #pencilsketching #dailysketches #ottawaart #sketchoftheday #sketchpad #bibliophile #drawingsofinstagram #uniqueart #femaleartist #gothart #weirdart #feministart #feministwriters #readersofinstagram #artistsoninstagram

I thought I'd take a moment tonight to look through my favourite edition of the Alice books and take a moment to appreciate John Tenniel's stunning illustrations, seing as today marks the 200th anniversary of his birth (thanks Google with your logos for the reminder!) Lewis Carroll's stories have a special place in my heart, partly due to childhood nostalgia and partly because I spent a long time researching and writing about them for my undergrad thesis - I'm fascinated to this day by their subversive energy! I always felt the illustrations perfectly complimented Caroll's work and brought it to life. 🐇♥️♣️🍄🐛 . Swipe through --> for a video of me admiring my favourite (and free from tonnes of pencil marks) edition and flicking through some of Tenniel's famous illustrations! .

Conjunción de la Luna con Venus Ayer en mi noche pude conocer a Venus. Me dormí y soñé y no lo supe hasta mi día. Capturó mi atención una estrella tan particular. Parecía querer competir con la Luna, mas solo resplandecía cómplice…. mucho más eran juntas. La Luna y Venus me llamaron la atención, aunque tu sabes que inevitablemente siempre busco mirar hacia el cielo…. busco admirar las admirables estrellas. Un encuentro de Luna... Venus parecía que podía llegar a ser todo lo que quisiera…llegar a todos los mundos esa noche… Esa noche pudo ser todo…todo…menos real. Mas la danza lunar sí existió!

“It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure on the world.” Today marks the 118th birthday of John Steinbeck, whose books I have read more than any other author living or deceased. The quote above is one of my favorites of his. #johnsteinbeck #steinbeck #bantambooks #bantamclassics #classicliterature #americanliterature #literaturebooks #vintagepaperbacks #ofmiceandmen #thegrapesofwrath #eastofeden #canneryrow #bookstagram

Beberapa anak laki-laki berbagai usia hidup di sekolah Plumfield. Franz yg dewasa, Emil yg gampang marah, Demi yg pintar, Daisy yg manis dan keibuan, Rob yg lincah, Teddy si bayi yg luci, Dick yg riang, Dolly yg gugup, Jack yg suka berbisnis, Ned yg kacau, Billy yg polos dan Net si pemain biola. Mereka hidup dlm asuhan Mr & Mrs Bhaer. Plumfield adalah sekolah yg tdk biasa di thn 1800an krn menggabungkan pendidikan antara anak perempuan dan anak laki-laki. • Nat, sbg anak baru berusaha menyesuaikan diri dgn banyak belajar tentang sopan santun, kasih sayang, etika dan kejujuran serta peraturan2 yg ditetapkan Mr & Mrs Bhaer agar Nat dpt berbaur dgn teman2nya. Seiring berjalannya waktu, Nat mengajak temannya Dan (Nat merasa hutang budi dgn Dan), tetapi Dan merasa tdk dpt menerima perubahan dirinya stlh di Plumfield dan akhirnya Dan pun kabur. • Setiap bab memiliki cerita masing2 dgn temanya sendiri dgn kisahnya masing2. Cerita paling fav ku tentang Mainan Daisy - yg beneran ama Mrs Bhaer dibikinin dapur mini dgn peralatan dapur yg mini jg tapi beneran, trs dimana tiap anak dikasih sepetak tanah utk digarap & ditanami tanaman masing2, trs ternak binatang yg hasilnya dijual - arggg aku berharap akupun jd anak2 Plumfieldnya Mr & Mrs Bhaer. • Baca buku Little Men, bener2 menghibur dan bisa jd selingan kalo abs baca genre thriller atau suspence tapi ga membosankan. • • • #littlemen #louisamayalcott #classic #classicbook #historicalfiction #youngadultbooks #heartwarmingbook #bookish #booksofinstagtam #bookphoto #bookaddicted #booklovers #ayomembaca #igreads #reader #readingbooks #vintageclassics #classicliterature #literature #personallibraryofannsrahyani

I often get asked about the leather on our journal because it is different from other brands that sell leather journals. So I wanted to do a quick video showcasing why our leather material is different. . We try to use salvaged leather that would otherwise go to waste as much as possible. It is usually leather that would be used in the inside of the soles of shoes or bags but has been deemed too imperfect by other companies. We work with small local manufactures to source this imperfect leather and turn it into journals with lots of personality. We feel the markings, and discolorations often add to the vintage and antique feel of our journals. . Of course sometimes some of the journals come out with too many issues where the design is hard to see. Those journals go into the "oops" pile and are available for a steal. . Be sure to head over to our website and browse all the vintage literary designs. . . . . . #Writingmatters, #inkygoodness, #thedailywriting, #creativejournaling, #Journalart, #journallove, #creativejournal, , #paperlover  #notebooks #wordart, #journals #journaling #notebook #diary #writersofig #writersofinstagram #classicliterature #fountainpen #handwriting #penaddict #penandink #penandpaper #rockyourhandwriting #Scribe #pens #littlestoriesofmylife #onmydesk #notetoself

“I must learn to be content with being happier than I deserve.” ~ Jane Austen (Pride & Prejudice) 💙 • Life is funny with its ups and downs and always keeping you on your toes. Learning to be content can be hard for someone whose brain never shuts off with thoughts and anxiety. There are the constants that I’ve learned to embrace in times of need: reading, Jane Austen, flowers, bad reality tv, and favorite old movies. I didn’t mean for this post to be so deep but this quote just seems so fitting for right now. I feel happily content and positive that this might be my best year yet. 💛🌼 Putting the deep stuff aside, for now, I’ve barely read this week because I’ve been so sucked into @loveisblindnetflix 😬 I’m currently watching the last episode and can’t wait to get back to my regularly scheduled life when it’s over haha #thebingeisreal • Have you been bingeing Love is Blind also?

Talk about a SKIN OF YHE SERPENT moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday my daughter went down to her special place by the creek,. Was just about to settle in when she almost stepped on a huge fat coiled snake. She slowly backed away. Back up the hill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Only she'd left her beloved jacket there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So she decided to wait it out. The snake would leave at sundown and she could get her jacket. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Up on the ledge she kept an eye on the snake ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At some stage in the next hour or so a fox on the other side of the creek locked eyes with her and they had a staring competion ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At anothe,r a dragon fly hovered and hung out with her. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And then... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She felt something slither down the side of her , AGAINST her skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ it was ANOTHER big fat snake. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It had been 2 feet away from her up on the hill all along, while her eyes were on the first!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She got the hell out of there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Afterword: we went back after sundown and her jacket and her are re- united. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She no longer thinks of that spot by the creek as exclusively her's. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * * * * *#snakestories #readmore #fortheloveofbooks #bookclubofinstagram #bookrecommendations #bookstoread #readingiscool #literaturequotes #classicliterature #literaturereview #englishliterature #literaturelove #literatureclub #wordsofworth #wordsoftruth #wordsofwisdom #bookclubofinstagram #bookclubbook #bookclubreads #wordsofwomen #wordsofradiance #bookclubinstagram #bookclubpick #bookclubread #bookclubfavourites #bookclubreads #bookclubselection #bookclubbing #bookclublove ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #writerlife

Beautiful three volume collection of War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. This Russian literary masterpiece was initially published in stages and then as a complete works in 1869. . The novel is considered one of Tolstoy's most incredible achievements, and is considered less a work of fiction than a pensive reflection on society. The narrative follows five affluent aristocrats in Russia, chronicling their lives and switching from narrative to philosophical debate and back again using incredible literary skill. . The book is a delight to read and in a piece on the subject, Phillip Hensher writes in The Guardian that 'it is not just great, but also the best novel ever written – the warmest, the roundest, the best story and the most interesting.' . To look on these volumes is beautiful, not only will they make a stunning addition to any bookcase, mantelpiece or shelf in a vintage book lovers home, they also make a stunning read for anyone new to the story.

This image, being nearly 100 years old, is out of copyright.⁣ ⁣ Description: A vintage black and white photograph of a young dark haired white woman with her hair in a bun wearing a long white painter smock crouching on the ground and painting a mural on the wall that makes up the background of the image. The stage set she is painting is of a galley of a ship with the workings of a ocean landscape in the background. To the left of the mural is a tall wooden ladder leaning against the wall and scattered around the wooden floorboard are paint accessories, including a bucket and a brush in a jar of water. On top of this is a large quotation mark icon in a semi-transparent black that precedes the words of the quote. The quote is written in black and below it is the attribution ‘Virginia Woolf’ in a larger sans serif font that is distinct to that of the quote⁣⁣.⁣⁣The text is situated in the right top quadrant of the image where the negative space next to the ship’s mast makes a natural enclave for the text to sit in front of the light landscape backdrop.⁣ ⁣ #qotd #quoteoftheday #instaquotes #quotestagram #quote #quotes #quotesoninstagram #quotesofinsta #quotesgram #quoteandsaying #quotetypography #instaquote #bookart #bookgram #virginiawoolf #virginiawoolfquotes #lovevirginiawoolf #wordart #quotablequotes #wordartist #creativesofinstagram #whimsicalart #quoteart #quoteartwork #quoteartist #literaryquotes #literaturequotes #classicliterature #englishlit #literaryfiction

I'm going to jump on the bandwagon here and take a moment to acknowledge John Steinbeck with this delicious cupcake from @cupsandcakesshop I'm not doing this because everyone else is. I'm doing this because I love this author and it brings back beautiful memories. While I was working on my undergrad, I took a Steinbeck class. A whole class. A whole semester. All dedicated to Steinbeck. I fell in love. Before that class, I had read Of Mice and Men in high school and loved it. But not much else. This class showed me even more value in his work. It helped me develop my love for Steinbeck. But it also taught me about resilience. My professor had terminal cancer. He came in every day that he could. First, he walked in. Then it was crutches. Then he was in a wheelchair. Then he couldn't come anymore. His love for Steinbeck really made an impression on me. He still came to work to share that love, even though life had dealt him and his family a crappy hand. That professor was pure joy. He changed me. Steinbeck changed me. I am better because of both of them. Happy birthday, John Steinbeck. And thank you, Professor Stephens. #cupsandcakesaz #lfthx #azcakes #organicad #steinbeck #johnsteinbeck #classiclit #classicliterature #bookstack #classics #bookishcommunity #readingcommunity #instabooks #bookstagram #bookstagrammer

The Scarlet Letter is about inequality of the sexes, fear of God, and the shame of a woman's desire. It so reminded me of Handmaid's Tale - the setting, the cloaks and bonnets, the processions of dignitaries and ministers and the public shaming of women. In this book, it was one woman in particular and then her bastard child. I loved it, and I loved how weird Pearl was, how she was described. She didn't give any fucks about any of those old folks. The proof that Hester was a good mother shows in how she protected Pearl from everything, and Pearl ended up a free and rich woman because of it to do as she pleased with her mother by her side. This was no. 21 for mine and Andrew’s book club. “She assured them, too, of her firm belief that, at some brighter period, when the world should have grown ripe for it, in Heaven's own time, a new truth would be revealed, in order to establish the whole relation between man and woman on a surer ground of mutual happiness" (188). . . . . . #thescarletletter #nathanielhawthorne #enhancedmediapubishing #classics #classicliterature #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #books #readers #read #bibliophile #booklovers #bookfridgenl #bookfridge #amorouscongressbookclub #1850

The American writer, John Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1962. His novels depict realistic scenes combined with imagination and sincerity. He was born on this day in 1902. Do you have a favorite Steinbeck novel?
Instagram media - For the month of February, I participated in the #kindredspiritnetwork book club… 2253341780932261287
For the month of February, I participated in the #kindredspiritnetwork book club and together we read Jane Austen's Emma. This was the second time through for me and still my fellow readers highlighted so many points that I hadn't noticed reading on my own. For instance, all of Mr. Woodhouse's good and kindly characteristics or the idea of Emma as a mystery novel. Reading this alongside some first time readers reminded me how many questions you have and how much confusion, duplicity, and slights of hand exist when you aren't in on the secrets. Even though it would be an incredibly tame mystery even by cozy standards, the clues and hints dropped throughout it call out for you to surmise alongside Emma. Emma is neither my most nor my least favorite Austen novel, although Mr. Knightly goes down as possibly my favorite Austen love interest. Sensible, outspoken, witty, and kind - he's hard to resist! It requires dedicated intent to immerse yourself in this story, but the pay off is excellent. I find the resolution of Emma's character arc to be satisfying to my sense of comeuppance. So many characters in this novel are downright irritating (looking at you Frank Churchill), yet the complexity of such a limited social circle is still entertaining and intriguing. If you are a lover of domestic details like me and can manage to wade through the first volume and still maintain your curiosity, the rest of the book should hold a lot of enjoyment. My biggest complaint is never being able to see into Jane Fairfax's mind. I'd love to read the entire novel again from her point of view. If you've read (or tried to read) Emma, do you like her character or do you find her too arrogant and selfish to sympathize with? As a group, we were quite divided on how we felt. I'm in the annoyingly arrogant and selfish camp, but I can also see all reasons that led her to that state and give her full credit for changing in the end. Next up is to watch the new adaptation in theaters! . . . . #janeausten #janeaustenfan #emma #janeaustenbooks #readersofinstagram #bookishgirl #classicliterature #classicbooks #readersgonnaread #readersofig #morebooksplease

I had a love/hate relationship with Wuthering Heights. I hated Catherine. I hated Heathcliff. But I loved what they represented - a time when outsiders were exactly that, and when women were bound to and defined by their home. I found the oppressive world represented by Wuthering Heights was so beautiful in its darkness and tragedy. What books have you had a love/hate relationship with? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “...surely you and every body have a notion that there is, or should be, an existence of yours beyond you. What were the use of my creation if I were entirely contained here? My great miseries in this world have been Heathcliff’s miseries, and I watched and felt each from the beginning; my great thought in living is himself. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and, if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the Universe would turn to a mighty stranger. I should not seem part of it. My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods. Time will change it, I’m well aware, as winter changes the trees - my love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath - a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff - he’s always, always in my mind - not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself - but, as my own being...” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

French-Algerian writer Albert Camus, le petit soldat An anti-colonial writer and activist, most famous for his absurdist/existential philosophy and his novel The Stranger, which I picked up in Spain a few years ago. Basically based his life around extreme nihilism, that everything is ultimately inconsequential, and that one should try to remain happy and free in spite of this. The novel is really good, Camus uses his prot to embody this deep sense of disinterest in the world and the potentially tragic(?) consequences of it.

“According to Aristophanes in Plato's The Banquet, in the ancient world of legend there were three types of people. In ancient times people weren't simply male or female, but one of three types : male/male, male/female or female/female. In other words, each person was made out of the components of two people. Everyone was happy with this arrangement and never really gave it much thought. But then God took a knife and cut everyone in half, right down the middle. So after that the world was divided just into male and female, the upshot being that people spend their time running around trying to locate their missing half.” ― Haruki Murakami, ‘Kafka on the Shore’ Painting: Carlos Schwabe, ‘Spleen and Ideal’ (1907) #literature #classicbooks #classicliterature #poetryofig #poetryinstagram #poetrylovers #booksofinstagram #writersofinstagram #followforfollow #romantics #classical #paintings #art

I am going to *try* to read at least once classic a month this year. 12 for the year, no pressure to do it exactly within the month but also a good way to encourage me to make my way through all the classic lit on my shelves. Realised that Feb is almost over but tbh I don't need to pick a plonking big book! Maybe Feb isn't the time to tackle War and Peace. Might pick a slim classic/modern classic that i always seem to pass over because I think "oh I can read that any day". I do actually want to read Madame Bovary though, I know I definitely have the book somewhere... —————————————————— #books#book#bookworm#booknerd#bookgeek#read#reading#reader#stories#library#libraries#classic#classics#classicliterature#literature#bookstagram#madamebovary #gustaveflaubert

The painted veil ~ W.S. Maugham ( 1925 ) ⁣ ⁣ The Painted Veil tells the story of Kitty and her husband Walter whilst they were on a work trip in China, throwing Kitty’s lover Charlie in the mix. No worries no spoiler here, this becomes a fact from the first few pages.⁣ ⁣ Maugham is the kind of author who tells a story as it is. The writing style is more than simplistic, he just narrates the actions without making it very difficult to understand. It’s easy to flick through those pages. He sets the scene just right for the first half of the book, and the second half was when the book really started for me. ⁣ ⁣ Kitty’s moral journey begins, she questions life in ways that she hasn’t before, nevertheless Maugham leaves us with some food for thought on topics such as women’s independence, Tao, love, religion, hardship and death. ⁣ ⁣ Even though an easy read, once you finish it give it a bit of time, a week perhaps two. Have a think of the book again and what it tries to tell you, only then you realise how in its simplicity you find brilliance and in its mystery you find clarity. ⁣ ⁣ With that being said, whenever you see a Maugham on any bookshop’s shelves, pick it up. I’m convinced he won’t disappoint just like this book didn’t. ⁣ ⁣ Thank you Bul @booksandsaudades for the buddy read, loved that we both shared the dislike for Kitty 😹⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wsomersetmaugham #thepaintedveil #penguinclassics #classicliterature #classiclit #englishlit #englishliterature #classicbooks #classicbook #modernclassics #bookaddict #modernclassic #modernclassics #letstalkbooks #books📚 #vintagebooks #oldbooks #bookaddicted #booksarelife #bookstagramit #bookworming⁣ #bookaholic #booksofintagram #beautifulbooks #booksbooksbooks #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookrecommendations

Čo mi dala táto kniha: Poe bol naozaj zaujímavý typ človeka ako aj autora. Jeho poviedky nesú v sebe známky pochmúrnosti, strachu, čierneho humoru a vnárajú sa do myšlienok čitateľa veľmi intenzívne. A práve to, ako dokáže pracovať so psychikou recipienta je najväčším plusom jeho tvorby. Niektoré poviedky pôsobia najprv úplne jednoducho a myslíte si, že vás ani ich záver neprekvapí, no potom vás Poe prevalcuje svojimi autorskými schopnosťami. Okrem strachu, pochybností a gotickosti je pre jeho tvorbu príznačná určitá morálna linka. Tú môžete pocítiť pri poviedkách, v ktorých zaúraduje pocit viny, výčitky alebo zámer zneškodniť to dobré v nás. K čomu vedú zlé skutky, ako ničia ľudskú dušu..to je nepatrný odkaz v Poeho tvorbe. Druhá stránka – tá estetická – uchváti čitateľa, pretože aj napriek zdanlivej jednoduchosti, pochmúrne príbehy odľahčené čiernym humorom vyčaria čítajúcemu úsmev. Na druhej strane, príbehy s gotickými motívmi svojimi temnejšími opismi a pochmúrnejšou náladou vyvolajú u recipienta tú pravú atmosféru tajuplna a jemného strachu. Poe sa vie dostať do našich hláv, vie v nich baštrngovať s predstavami i emóciami. Nie nadarmo sa považuje sa zakladateľa hororového a kriminálneho žánru a nie nadarmo bol vzorom aj pre Doyla či Wilda. Čierny  kocúr a ďalšie poviedky ma zaujali po všetkých stránkach a určite budem ďalej vyhľadávať Poeovu tvorbu. #dnescitam #dnesctu #poe #edgarallanpoe #cocitat #ciernykocur #klasika #srdcovka #book #booklover #bookstagram #skczbookstagram #bookoftheday #read #reading #booknerd #bookshelf #youmustread #classicliterature

🌸"The Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde🌸 . This classic was wild! . A short one for sure, but it's so dense and dark, I think it was just the right length. . I guess the general plot is famous. As everybody says, this is about a young beautiful boy who was scared of growing old, and losing his beauty. Then one day, his portrait started to have dark circles and wrinkles instead of himself! . But never did I thought this classic would make such a terrifying turn! It deals with the core uncensored human nature, which makes it so hard to read at times, yet it was so interesting to read a book tackling the topic so bluntly. The supernatural element of the portrait was interesting for me as well. . While reading, it reminded me a lot of "Frankenstein". I wish there were more like these. 🤔 . ★★★★☆ . #bookstagram #classicliterature #classics #classicscommunity #thepictureofdoriangray #oscarwilde #penguinclassics #洋書多読部 #洋書 #book #books #reading
