This picture doesn’t belong to any of “Beauty And The Beast” adaptations. But still I think that it fits the tale very well.
My little sister is having a little trouble with a person at her school because she likes reading and this person deems it ‘not cool’.
I want to prove to her that there are lots of people who love reading and think it is very much cool :D
A little reblog would be amazing! Thank you!
You tell your sister all the cool kids read books :)
Tell her she is not alone and to keep reading.
shikanome a dit : Les cookies maison, c’est la vie! ;^;
Surtout à l’avoine et aux pépites de choco cassées à la main avec le marteau (enveloppé dans du plastique, je précise. Je suis une brute, mais une brute hygiénique)
amongthegentlymad a dit : I want cookies @__@
If I could, I’d send some to you Sweetie, but I doubt it would be edible when you receive the threat…
My cookies are fucking good.
No, that’s not an innuendo.
Mes cookies sont trop bon.
Et non, c’est pas un sous-entendu graveleux.
Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).

Hmmmm un jour j’aurais à nouveau une machine à pain….
There is something I think is french and french only (or culturally francophone at least).
It’s going to the bakery…
Buying fresh and warm bread just out of the oven (baguette is great guys, try it once!)
And eating half of it in the short trip back home.
This is one of my great pleasure in life.
Il y a un truc qui est typiquement français (ou du moins francophone je pense)
C’est aller à la boulangerie…
Acheter un pain frais tout juste sorti du four…
Et en manger la moitié sur le court trajet de retour.
C’est un de mes grands plaisir de la vie.
SEXISM IS OVER
i feel uncomfortable seeing this o-o
Good. Tell your buddies this is what oversexualization is and why it’s a problem when it happens to female characters.
You are informed about a book’s perceived quality through a number of ways. Probably the biggest is the cover.
And the simple fact of the matter is, if you are a female author, you are much more likely to get the package that suggests the book is of a lower perceived quality. Because it’s “girly,” which is somehow inherently different and easier on the palate. A man and a woman can write books about the same subject matter, at the same level of quality, and that woman is simple more likely to get the soft-sell cover with the warm glow and the feeling of smooth jazz blowing off of it.
This idea that there are “girl books” and “boy books” and “chick lit” and “whatever is the guy equivalent of chick lit”* gives credit to absolutely no one, especially not the boys who will happily read stories by women, about women. As a lover of books and someone who supports readers and writers of both sexes, I would love a world in which books are freed from some of these constraints.

This is a pretty interesting experiment from author Maureen Johnson.
I read this earlier today. Really, really worth looking at and thinking about. There’s a whole gallery of them.
Reminds me of this post I made earlier.
…So true… I can’t count the number of time I put down a book because the cover look liked a bad romance novel.
Yeah yeah don’t judge a book by it’s cover and all, but I’ve been burned enough to be wary of pastel colored fantasy books…
