The books that will move you, inspire you, make you cry, make you think, make you laugh. Are there any books that you would add?
I agree with most of this list.
Reblogging for my reference. I need a new good book to read. Even though I hate buzzfeed with a firey passion, I will look at this and appreciate it for what it is.
What he said.
This is a pretty excellent list!
Two pillars of ivory to guard my soul;
Beautiful, strong ivory poles.
Soon came rain and hail and snow
and one of the pillars began to show
signs of weakness, little cracks.
The pillar whispered “just relax”.
One day, it came down with a crash,
just to reveal it was made of ash.
this place a home
suddenly a prison
this place is like ice
someone warm me up
writing is safer, somehow
because my pen cannot stutter like my lips do,
and words get stuck in throats,
not fingertips, can’t stumble
on paper trails of blue lines
because writing is definite and clear
and no one can tell if i am crying
through written words alone
