Art by _LivEr:… — Osamu put his hand up to the side of his face, casually slipping a finger past his hair and over his ear, trying to drown out the sound of the girls at the table next to him best he could, hoping to stay focused on the small, well-read paperback in his hands […]

What did you think the last time you checked a book in and found notes in the margins, or passages underlined, or pages dogeared? Most of us, I’m sure, are at least annoyed by that. I work in academic libraries and we see this a lot—so much that there really is nothing we can do […]

hogwartstribune: Fit into their stereotype completely or not at all– There’s the typical “Oh you’re a Ravenclaw so you must love reading and always are studying”. Sometimes this is true, but it’s not a bad thing to always have a book with you. Other times Ravenclaws are some of the worst procrastinators who rather spend their […]

The Oosterbook

I saw Call Me By Your Name twice. Once, after work in a near empty cinema with a bag of caramel popcorn and no knowledge of what I was about to see. I cycled home in the rain, buoyed by the heady images of an Italian summer: arts and classics and introspection and lust and swimming and […]

If you have kids, it is very likely you have a children’s Bible or two lying around your house. If you have kids like mine, it is also very likely that those Bibles are incredibly used looking (in my case, the cover is missing and the pages are dogeared). That doesn’t seem to matter to […]

A Stranger in the House of God

Happily F.I.T.

As humans and living creatures, we spend an unmeasurable amount of time in relationships. In fact, each person or creature you cross paths with spawns a connection that is then webbed into your history. Some connections are simple and last only a fraction of a second while some span our entire lifetime. I’ve always been […]
