"Ayağının altında tepenin köklerinin, derinlere, ta derinlere, karanlığa doğru gittiğini hissetti; başının üzerinde yıldızların uzak ve kuru ateşlerini gördü. Bunların arasındaki her şey ise, onun emrinde, onun hizmetindeydi. Dünyanın tam ortasında duruyordu" #yerdeniz #awizardofearthsea #yerdenizbüyücüsü #ursulakleguin

Happy birthday to Aldous Huxley! He was born on this day in 1894.

Aldous Huxley wrote his famous dystopian novel Brave New World in 1931. This Folio edition, now out of print, was published in 2013 and is introduced by Ursula K. Le Guin. This edition was the subject for the Book Illustration Competition 2012, which was won and subsequently illustrated by artist Finn Dean.

Does anyone own this edition (or the vintage chrome 1970s edition?)? #foliosociety #aldoushuxley #bravenewworld #bic2012 #finndean #ursulaleguin #ursulakleguin #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookaddict #booknerd #hardback #illustratedbooks #beautifulbooks

Mondays with the kid are my favorite. Especially when we take a 45 adventure to a place to read and eat a snack. I am blessed to live where I live. May the San Lorenzo always run strong and healthy, and may the people who visit it honor its spirit. #ursulakleguin #jasperthedog #sanlorenzoriver #bonusparenting

You know that feeling of wonder and possibility when you discover a book you've never heard of before, pluck it off the bookstore or library shelf, and bring it home with you (hopefully after having paid for it or checked it out 😉)? Yeah, I rarely get that feeling anymore. Don't get me wrong - Goodreads is a wonderful site that I'm immensely grateful for. But still - once in a while - I long for a book I know nothing about.
❤️
So, while browsing the incredible sci-fi/fantasy section at @ubookstorereads the other day (thanks to Tal's eternal patience... 2 hours spent there 😁), I came across this book. Never heard of it before (granted, it's an anthology and I've read a few of the authors previously), and with pages this beautiful, it's hard to go wrong. Still, "Wonderbook" was the perfect title to describe the way I felt when I held this book in my hands.
💛
Wonderbook is a "an illustrated guide to creative imaginative fiction" compiled by Jeff Vandermeer with contributors including @neilhimself, @levgrossman, @ursulakleguin, @catvalente, @georgerrmartin, Joe Abercrombie and more! Awesome, right?
💚
What's the most recent book you've picked up without checking reviews or ratings? Or one that gave you that sense of wonder as soon as you picked it up?

I'm making up a writer tag! #recommendawritingbook - totally selfish bc I really want to read more books about writing. Mine is Letters to a Young Writer by Colum McCann. Excellent, inspirational read! If you're a writer, I'll love you forever for sharing your fave book about writing. 😁

#grimdragon - I'm an open book!
"Imagine darkness.
In that darkness that faces outward from the sun a mute spirit woke. Wholly involved in chaos, he knew no pattern. He had no language, and did not know the darkness to be night."
Morning folks! ☀️
Here's an open book for you.
My open book is City of Illusions by Ursula K LeGuin and I typed out the fist mini paragraph for your reading pleasure.
If you're not reading LeGuin then what I'm the world are you doing with your life? 😂
I'm going to try experimenting with this black background for a little while so let me know what you all think.
Anyway, I'm about to head off to work. I hope everyone has a nice morning 😊

Bom dia! Andei sem postar pq estava desmotivada mas retomando o de sempre: livro e café 🍵 com leite de côco.
