"How do you not like the internet? That's like saying, 'I don't like things that are convenient. And easy. I don't like having access to all of mankind's recorded discoveries at my fingertips. I don't like light. And knowledge.''
---Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl.

I really like Rowell's interpretation of modern geekdom and romance and loved this book, despite thinking I wouldn't initially.
Which was the last book to really exceed your expectations? Thanks in advance. 😊

πŸ‘‰ prompt 'the angst is real' via #grimdragon --- no doubt some people look down on romance themed books... yet for most people I would presume the significance, intensity and/or angst of many romantic situations is very real in their personal lives?

For those who don't know, the Funko is of James 'Sawyer' from the LOST TV show ...he spent the first two seasons making the castaways lives hell, and reading πŸ“˜πŸ˜Š... I couldn't stand him for quite sometime, but he is now one of my faves... which TV, film or book character have you had the biggest about-turn? ...waits to see lots of Jamie Lannister mentions. 😎😁.

You can never know what will strike a chord on Bookstagram can you? Last week I did my first 'No Shelf Shelfie' and was surprised by the response... thank you all so much. Anyways... it's Sunday shelfie time again πŸ˜ƒ.
.
What type of photo has been the most and least well received? Did your puppy photo flop, but your red dawn go viral?
.
Instead of tagging individual accounts I am throwing this out to everyone... TAG #NoShelfShelfie... Let's see what you can do... One rule you can't use an actual shelf. Ideas... You could use mantlepieces, stairs, tables, the fridge, your grandad's back, a dog kennel, kitchen sink... go wild with it. Good luck πŸ‘

"There are also books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story, Bobby. Don't be like the snobs who won't do that.

Read sometimes for the words - the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers that won't do that.

But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book."
---Stephen King, Hearts of Atlantis.

πŸ‘‰ prompt 'a quote I try to live by' via #bookreadhappyhour
.
πŸ“™
Hearts in Atlantis has been one of my fave reads, and my all-time fave King for a long time. I've been trying to think what makes it so special... and reading a 1999 New York Times review, the reason was down in ink... Because the main character isn't heroic or a risk taker... he does the right thing. I really like that... Because in real life I believe it is just as heroic to be risk adverse and do the right thing as it is to be a heroic risk taker.

In my real world... I mean the world of TV... I recently watched five.... Yes five ...seasons of Brooklyn Nine Nine, I thought it was awful. ...bar the amazing Chelsea Peretti who plays Gina Linetti. .... so, what's the most seasons of a TV Show, or books in a series that you didn't like that you have watched or read... and why? Thank you 😊.

So what do you think of my shelfie? Notice anything different about it?
.
I changed the way I stacked my books because of Bookstagram; I started buying books (instead of borrowing) again; I got back into Stephen King etc. What changes have you made as a direct result of Bookstagram? As ever, thanks for reading have a great what's left of the weekend. 🀘😊

Don't you just love rainbow book arrangements? I also really like that the rainbow flag has become a universal standard for LGBT+ pride and movements. Next year the flag will be 40 years old!
My all-time favourite LGBT+ fictional character has got to be the whistling vigilante Omar Little in The Wire.
Who is your favourite fictional LGBT+ character? As ever, thanks in advance 😊.

All about the Regram, #babasbookstagramtips 2.05.
Key steers:
- technically you should ask permission to share someone else's post/photo
- best practice is to use a Regram app
- you should make the ID original source account name very clear in photo and caption
- where under 18s are pictured you MUST ask permission
- YOU have every right to ask someone to remove a repost, for whatever reason you determine.
In summary it is all about the original poster's copyrights.
.
Hope this is useful. Have a great weekend πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

If I could have a free signed Stephen King book for everytime someone whined to me about something, and then told me they don't vote as it doesn't make a difference πŸ™„.

The best slogan I've seen today was --- 'Vote Democrat, We're not perfect, but they're nuts.'

Current rewatching The West Wing... Sometimes I really really like it, and other times I am so-so. I think it's because all Aaron Sorkin's TV work and especially his characterisations feel the same to me? Any The West Wing fans out there? Do you have a favourite political drama?

"The farther we've gotten from the magic and mystery of our past, the more we've come to need Halloween.' πŸŽƒ

Carrie, King's first good scare and film adaptation. Here's five interesting (fact checked) Carrie film facts:
1. Carrie and Star Wars held joint auditions!!!
2. It was John Travolta's debut movie in a leading role.
3. Sissy Spacek (Carrie) was isolated from the rest of the cast to make it easier for them to be realistically mean to her.
4. Sissy Spacek was the Prom Queen at her school.
5. Stephen King supported the idea of Lindsay Lohan playing Carrie in a remake!

"Orange is the early morning sun stretching across the sky and the color of a burning ember standing tall in the middle of a beach bonfire. It's leaves in the Fall, carrots in Nana's vegetable soup on a cold winter day, tulips in the Spring, and ladybugs in the middle of the grassy park on a hot Summer afternoon. Orange is life. It's unexpected but beautiful."
---Aly Martinez, Stolen Course.

OK, OK... Which of you recommended that I watch Fargo? Holy Hubert Humprey!!! It is such a great show, I kid you not. Super acting, camera shots, dialogue etc. and a great overall story arc that keeps you dying to know where it's going next! Any Fargo watchers out there? Please no spoilers, I just finished the eighth episode of season one.

So as my tiny contribution to Stranger Things 2's release - the show whose font is a nod to Stephen King - here are a few of my stranger King books.
The beautiful Tom Gordon pop-up, a French edition of Rage and two rare short story pamphlets that came in the adult Gallery magazine in the early 1980s... the 1980s another nod to Stranger Things 😊.
