Wow. The trailer for Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea surfaced (HA!) today and it’s spectacular. Just to recap: this is a movie based on a National Book Award-winning history (Nathaniel Philbrick’s In the Heart of the Sea); based on gripping first accounts, one of which was only discovered in the 1980s (Chase and Nickerson’s The Loss of the Whaleship Essex, Sunk by a Whale); that inspired one of the greatest novels ever written (Moby-Dick). If that’s not good pedigree, what is?

Progress! About 95% of my series are incomplete, and I won’t have pretty series shelves like everybody else does cause my series aren’t all pretty YA books with pretty covers.

Your shelves will be gorgeous, because they have books on them!

“Of all man’s instruments, the most wondrous, no doubt, is the book. The other instruments are extensions of his body. The microscope, the telescope, are extensions of his sight; the telephone is the extension of his voice; then we have the plow and the sword, extensions of the arm. But the book is something else altogether: the book is an extension of memory and imagination.”

Jorge Luis Borges (via observando)

“Read. Read anything. Read the things they say are good for you, and the things they claim are junk. You’ll find what you need to find. Just read.”
