Benedict and Books - Stealing my Heart again.
One of the greatest things I ever heard him say.
Absolutely this. I was a children’s librarian for ten years and this is putting into words exactly how I felt about it and why I loved my job.
I’ve been in the bookselling business for 6 years.
Whenever people (kids OR adults) say, ‘I hate reading,’ I always tell them that they really LOVE reading, they just haven’t found the right book.
Benny’s got it right.
It’d be cool to do a “sisterhood of the traveling pants” but with books. Everyone uses a dif color highlighter to highlight their favorite part/or to just add a rant/thought about a specific section (with sticky notes) that made them think. And at the end the book is probably worn out, colorful, and has emotions, history and different perspectives poured into it.
There’s no bigger turn off for me than when you ask someone what their favorite books are and they respond “I don’t read.”
there is no bigger turn off
than someone not reading
are you sure
“I killed every person I’ve ever been in a relationship with and want you to wear this mask of my grandmother while we have sex”
“Also I don’t read.”
“Well then, that is where I walk away”
i want to visit this place! so coool!
Kansas City Public Library, Missouri. The building was designed by Dimensional Innovations. Local residents selected the titles of the books that are displayed on the bookshelf.
This is so awesome. Just yet another reason to love the South <3
