don’t you hate it when you’re reading a chapter and then it’s coming to its climax and omg what’s gonna happen, then woops, your eyes dart to the last line and you spoil yourself and hate yourself for it
this is why, in particularly intense reading situations, i physically put my hand over the bottom of the page so i can’t accidentally spoil myself.
i take this shit seriously.
I AM NOT ALONE IN THIS WORLD

TBR BOOK JAR!! :D
Recently my TBR pile has been growing (especially with my recent hauls) and I figured this would be the perfect way to get started on some those titles.
I’ve put books in the jar that I own and have yet to read as well as books that I want to read but have yet to purchase. Hopefully this will help me get around to some of the trilogies and classics that I have been neglecting :)
Plus it takes away the tough decisions involved in choosing a book when there are so many choices :)
We’re seriously considering this option for dealing with our post-holiday out-of-control TBR shelves…
Where has this idea been for all of our reading lives? So smart!
Love this idea! And it makes each book choice an occasion.

Oh look what came in the mail yesterday: the trade paperback of NOS4A2 with the holiday cover (they’ll return to the old cover after the Christmas season).
William Morrow put together such a beautiful looking book here. The trade paperback also includes a piece of art that we somehow managed to leave out of the hardcover: a page from Vic McQueen’s unpublished Search Engine story.
Also out, right around the same time as the trade paperback of NOS4A2, are the first issues of the WRAITH series I’m doing with CP Wilson iii. WRAITH will run 5 chapters in all, with a one-issue prologue and a one-issue epilogue. You don’t need to have read NOS4A2 to enjoy it, and you don’t need to read WRAITH to enjoy NOS4A2, but I think the two compliment each other well.

Oh my god oh my god oh my god my copy of MaddAddam arrived today and you guys I’m so excited I can’t even I’ve been waiting for this day for years. LITERALLY YEARS. The only thing that could top this is The Book of Dust and then I can finally die happy.
