Been devouring the essays of Dorothy Sayers lately. Like, I am real late to this party, but DottieSayers wrote some mighty good words, ammmIriiight??? Here is one I underlined last night: 📚📖 "We are so made that we soon grow weary of ornament for sake of ornament, and even of beauty that makes no appeal to the heart or the understanding.” -Dorothy L. Sayers, from The Whimsical Christian💓

Tre nya böcker i vår klassikerserie finns nu i lager! Lika snygga på utsidan som givande på insidan 😊👌. #librisförlag #librisklassiker #cslewis #dorothysayers #thomaskelly

Rainy day reading. 📖☕️ #dorothysayers #booksandbeverages

Since I didn't finish it in February, I'm reading We Should All Be Feminists for #womenshistorymonth this March. Another one I love and re-read often, Dorothy Sayers essays on women. Sayers was the first woman to graduate from Oxford and a brilliant author and theologian. #dorothysayers #womensmarch #feminism #socialjustice

🌓 Goes great with a Dorothy Sayers mystery.

Tarot for the wild soul by @wildsoulhealing @tarotforthewildsoul // Day Twenty-Four: What is my favorite form of self care? I don't have a favorite; I take what I can get and make it work. #SoulSpaceOracle cards are my go-to when I'm feeling out of it, gettting outside or just playing with nature inside (Sage Bundles) is very satisfying, I enjoy reading, I fucking LOVE sleep, peppermint tea keeps my tummy happy, and this giant fox pillow (that I made from some random internet pattern) is actually a great thing to hug. I calm down pretty well. •• #tarotforthewildsoul #tarotchallenge #takegentlecareofyourself #selflove #selfcare #ranchwifelyfe #treatyoself #dorothysayers #pepperminttea #sagebundle #mountaingoathair #magpiefeather #pinecone #handmade #foxpillow #eyemask #ilovesleep #motherhoodrising #pms #periodproud #apluckyfemme #montanamystic

"How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks." -Dorothy Sayers

One of my illustrations for @zhen.l.zhen 's art challenge. Out of context this quote probably doesn't make much sense but in the book it made me laugh...plus I just love ducks. :) #illustration #watercolor #gaudynight #dorothysayers #ducks #inklings #centralpark

Lord Peter Wimsey. So I'm not sure what I think of him yet. I do like that he's a fellow book collector, though! Clouds of Witness is our new family read aloud. I'll report back when I'm finished but I think Holmes still wins. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

STICKY TAPE: enemy of all books, a disaster that ought to be prohibited. In this case the victim is a 1971 copy in Swedish of Busman's Honeymoon by Dorothy Sayers. In other words, not a fancy  book, but it is still an unsetteling reminder of what people are capable of.  To the defence of this disaster it should be noted that at least someone cared enough to make an effort, even if it virtually meant killing the book.

Since I finally finished reading Magpie Murders last night and I am not currently reading anything, I thought I would post my #bookhaul from my book buying trip with my husband. Most excited about the #applewoodbooks #nancydrew. I have never actually read the originals, so that will be interesting for me. Also, #unfinishedportrait completes my collection of the #marywestmacott Never heard of the #christophermorleybooks, but started reading one and I just had to buy both. #agathachristie #josephinetey #dorothysayers #janelangton #lmmontgomery #bookstagram #igbooks #igreads #readmore #booksofinstagram #ilovereading #instabooks #instareads #totalbooknerd #bookworm_insta #mykindofbooks #bookishfeatures #bookstagramfeatures #currentread #bookishgalsjuly

Vackra ansikten från ett fotografi på legendariska värdshuset The Mitre i Oxford, med anor från 1300-talet. Även här brukade ju Inspector Morse titta in men för mig är det platsen där Lord Peter Wimsey drog sig tillbaka när han hjälpte Harriet Vane lösa mysterier i "Gaudy Night" (1935). Dorothy Sayers är alltid läsvärd.
Faces from a beautiful photo in The Mitre, where Dorothy Sayers hero Lord Peter Wimsey stayed while in Oxford. #oxford #themitre #england #dorothysayers #lordpeterwimsey #giantsofliterature #gaudynight #inspectormorse #colindexter #cityofdreamingspires #history #instahistory #instatravel

Prepping for vakay to Western New York and the Adirondacks in a couple weeks. Many more books to come. Gaudy Night for the 2nd or 3rd time and I'm not sure why - Lord Peter drives me wild and I'm pretty sure Dorothy would have done the same. Maybe you have to be a librarian of a certain age, but I always find buckram so soothing - suggests burying yourself in a book. (FYI: we do both Dewey and LOC at U of I) #vacationreading #dorothysayers #buckram #libraries

I'm in the mood for a murder mystery without smart phones, laptops, on demand TV, 12,000 TV channels and solar panels. 1930's here I come #dorothysayers #murdermystery #books #whattoread
