YES. I’m tired of all of you pretentious assholes saying that I’m not “really reading” because I use a kindle.

Yes, you are reading.You are just reading a “lesser” form of book. Reading isn’t just reading the words on a page/screen, it’s smelling the book, new or old, it’s wearing the books spine out after rereading it for the X’th time, it’s leaving crease marks on a page you flipped too fast because you were that eager to get to the next page, and most of all, it’s losing yourself in a book to the point where the world around you no longer exists. And I, for one, cannot lose myself in an electronic screen. The words of a real book take on a depth that cannot ever be recreated on anything electronic. So you may be reading a book, but you will never truly experience a book unless you read it in a printed medium.

lol this pretentious bullshit. “The words of a real book take on a depth that cannot ever be recreated on anything electronic.” i mean really. anyway, the words of your reblog have no depth or meaning to me since i’m reading them in electronic form, but u tried it






Who are these people that go around smelling books all the time?

This is such bullshit.  Whenever people go on about how printed books are so much ~better~ than electronic versions it just makes me realize how many people never think about the number of people in the world who don’t have print literacy. 
There are so many blind, dyslexic, or otherwise impaired people who CAN’T use paper books.  Having an electronic copy means you can listen to any text instead of trying to read it.  You don’t have to have the audio-book, just a simple text-to-speech software program.
I guess no one realizes how difficult it can be to find braille copies of literally anything.  Electronic versions are accessible to anyone regardless of ability, that should be encouraged, not shamed for pretentious reasons.


Preach it, PREEEEACH!

Picture for reverse-mermaid who asked me to draw something for vargrimar's chelley fic Sing Nightingale!  It was easy to pick a scene to illustrate since the part where Chell first manages to use her voice is, fittingly enough, breathtaking.

DRACO MALFOY WEEK | DAY 3 - FAMILY

Join us as we take an exclusive trip to Malfoy Manor for a special interview and photo session!

…as I move on to my next question, a thunderous explosion shakes the manor. While I’m terrified, Hermione and Draco don’t seem much fazed by the loud blast. Moments later, the culprits appear at the foot of the staircase. And I’m relieved to only find the three Malfoy children. The two eldest troublemakers look equally guilty and ashamed. The youngest sibling trail behind them with an unnerving smirk on her face…
