A room without books is a body without soul.

This blog is run by Maggie and Taylor, two impressively dorky, book-obsessed girls who drool over gorgeous libraries and journals.

We post bookish pictures that we fall in love with and reviews of books we read.

We take no credit for any pictures we post unless otherwise noted.

→ Waiting for Godot (Samuel Beckett)

Waiting for Godot (/ˈɡɒdoʊ/ god-oh) is an absurdist play by Samuel Beckett, in which two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, wait endlessly and in vain for the arrival of someone named Godot. Godot’s absence, as well as numerous other aspects of the play, have led to many different interpretations since the play’s 1953 premiere. It was voted “the most significant English language play of the 20th century”. Waiting for Godot is Beckett’s translation of his own original French version, En attendant Godot, and is subtitled (in English only) “a tragicomedy in two acts”. The original French text was composed between 9 October 1948 and 29 January 1949. The première was on 5 January 1953 in the Théâtre de Babylone, Paris. The production was directed by Roger Blin, who also played the role of Pozzo.

Did you know: 
LES MISÈRABLES has a 3-page, 823-word sentence which is divided by 93 commas, 51 semicolons, and 4 dashes? Rumor has it that someone suffocated from lack of oxygen in the 1940′s just short of the 73rd comma while giving a dramatic reading from the work.

Book Collage based on Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
Perhaps a bit too quote heavy? But I personally blame Rainbow Rowell and her amazing writing for that. It was super hard having to leave out so many amazing quotes…

Imagine stabbing someone with this knife. 

It would instantly cauterize the would, so the person wouldn’t bleed, so it’s not very useful.

if you want information it is

and above, in order, we see a gryffindor, a ravenclaw, and a slytherin

I must be a puff because I’m still thinking about the toast.
