“My marriage ended in divorce after five years. Now in England the voice-over would go, “His marriage failed after five years.” But in the States the voice-over went, “His marriage succeeded for five years.” They’re a nation of serial marriers, the Americans. I’m not referring to the Mormons, either. I think it’s because at heart they’re a profoundly optimistic people.”—Julian Barnes, Love etc. (via quietontheinside)
I’m a recent college grad who’s the proud owner of a new Kindle (thanks Big!). I love books and the written word, and as I have some time to spare now, I thought it’d be fun to have a blog devoted exclusively to my literary pursuits! This is a secondary Tumblr, created for the sole purpose of reviewing books as I read and reread them. Feel free to hit me up with opinions, book/author suggestions, and your favourite excerpts/quotes! :) Here’s the link to my primary blog, which is an eclectic mix of personal posts and reblogs of things that interest me (mainly coffee and BBC Sherlock).
