Vintage Tumblr Themes
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.

“I try to catch every sentence, every word you and I say, and quickly lock all these sentences and words away in my literary storehouse because they might come in handy.”

“The kid read books like he was engaged in some sort of scavenger procedure, scowling in concentration, turning pages at improbable speed while he flayed away the inessential flesh of prose and inspected the skeleton of the story, the bare facts or crucial nonsense. Dylan Ebdus didn’t read, he filleted.”

The Fortress of Solitude; Jonathan Lethem (via eileenssummerreadinglist)

“I am forced into speech because men of science have refused to follow my advice without knowing why. It is altogether against my will that I tell my reasons for opposing this contemplated invasion of the antarctic—with its vast fossil-hunt and its wholesale boring and melting of the ancient ice-cap—and I am the more reluctant because my warning may be in vain.”

H. P. Lovecraft, "At the Mountains of Madness"
