-Which literary character are you? Apparently I'm someone from Lord of the Rings, which I haven't read, so doesn't have a lot of meaning to me. (Abebooks)

-Rainbow Rowell has some brilliant things to say about the censorship of her books. (The Toast)

-These photos of divers in front of the Eiffel Tower in 1912 and these of a woman dancing on the beach in the 1920s are are amazing. (Vintage Everyday)

  1. Some links that are pure gold! Thank you :)

  2. What that pug is great... I am so glad that now I can pin moving gifs... about to pin it right now!!

    1. Ooh I gave up on Pinterest but maybe I should rejoin if I you can pin gifs!

  3. I am taking that character test and greatly look forward to seeing who I come out as! Jimmy Fallon is, to my mind, fairly excellent. The lip sync battle is hilarious!

    1. Yes, Jimmy Fallon always does hilarious skits.

  4. I'm not getting sucked into Tumblr (we have an account, but I haven't been there in months. It confuses me.), but I do enjoy talking to the Penguin Australia people on Twitter about VA! They're so much fun. Even if the movie sucks, which it probably will, I'm still going to see it.

    1. "sucked into Tumblr" is exactly what happens if you risk it hehe. The PTA people are pretty awesome on social media.
      I think the movie will probably suck too but I'm still excited to see it.
