We've gotten two Book Revolution entries so far this month, from our badass loyal submitters!
The first is from Miss Roxanne, our bookworm yummy mummy:
In honor of your daily radness, I'm reading The Princess Bride. I am kinda ashamed I've never read the book, since the movie is so awesome, & I'm loving what i've read so far. Ttfn!
Thanks, Roxy! And BTW - that is an EPIC read! Prepare to be blown away!
Our second entry is from the rad Andrew (Radrew even?):
I'm quite a fan of the Barnes & Noble classics. They make them accessible and compressible for any reader. I've purchased a number of titles from their selection. I've read books that I previously would have found intimidating like the works of Dostoevsky, and Dante's Divine Comedy just to name a few. Here's me with my copy of "The Picture of Dorian Gray". One of my favorite sections of these books are the "Introduction" giving the reader some background on the author and the inspiration of the particular book. Happy reading Biblio Babes!
Muchas gracias, senor! Anyone who reads classics gets mad respect from us!
Thanks a million, guys! And keep on reading!
... When beloved monsters of our fondest childhood memories finally retire.
Wait, what? Your childhood wasn't spent curled up under a blanket being scared shitless by inappropriately themed movie nights? Boy, did you ever miss out (on nightmares and bedwetting)!
And THIS is what happens when horror film producers, directors, and actors do INSTEAD of retiring:
Nah, I'm just joshing. I (Kat) actually went to see this movie at the theater when it came out. It was the one and only time I got ID'd for a movie. Not only did I get in, but I also brought some underage children with me to enjoy the cinematographic vision of group of talented artists.
Just keeping up the time honored tradition of causing lifelong night terrors in our future generations! Hooray!
How long do I have left Doc?
Marilyn Monroe reading. I'm not sure if there is anything sexier than this.... ever.
Because if so, they at least have a good grasp of badass.
I (Cara) read Where the Wild Things Are
when I was very young. I loved it and the movie. I feel like we need another post in honour of Maurice Sendak:
PS. (Yay Obama's support of marriage equality!)
I need to say a HUGE thank you to Spike Jonze for sticking to his guns and keeping the movie dark and honest. Despite all the criticism to make it more "commercial" he kept it real.After all, the guy did Being John Malkovich for Christ's sake, I think he knows a thing or two about creating awesome movies. Such a sad week for us all. “Oh, please don't go—we'll eat you up—we love you so!” Xx
This makes me want to hold and love my books even more.
...Makes me feel a little guilty for having an Ereader.
