#Book31 is a Halloween dream, ‘tis the season after all! 🎃👻 I’ve never seen/read this classic, and the storyline is not at all what I imagined. Loving it, even if it is a little creepy!! 🧛🏻‍♀️🧛🏻‍♂️ #Dracula #BramStoker #goodreads #readingchallenge #gothichorror #gothicnovel #classicliterature #instareads #bookstagram #currentlyreading #readingisfundamental #readmorebooks #vampire #vampirebooks
☕ Los Hermida viven en Numareda, pequeña capital de una provincia del Cantábrico. Don José, el padre, fue desde joven un calavera que malgastó su herencia entre el juego, la borrachera y los placeres del amor carnal. Gracias a sus amistades consiguió ascender en la abogacía hasta llegar a ser presidente de la Audiencia Territorial. A los cuarenta decidió casarse con Socorro, una abnegada mujer que enseguida se dio cuenta de quién era su marido pero que calló, dejando que su vida se convirtiera en un océano helado. De los hijos que tuvieron solo sobrevivió Ana, que en el presente es toda una señorita y vive felizmente enamorada de Raimundo, un joven abogado sin fortuna ni posición social, pero bueno, franco y formal. Don José, jubilado y afectado por una ceguera y un problema cardiaco, ha tenido que dejar de lado “el torrente impetuoso de sus malas costumbres” y vive recordando con nostalgia sus mocedades parranderas y también preocupado por el futuro de su familia. Quiere que Anita se case con Numa Álvarez, un compañero de juergas cargado de millones que, debido a los continuos préstamos que le ha ido haciendo, prácticamente se ha convertido en propietario de todo lo que poseen los Hermida. Pero al enterarse de que la niña tiene novio  decide llevársela a su finca de Rocamar, una aldehuela de pescadores en la costa, y hacerla cambiar de opinión. ☕ ‘Los señores de Hermida’ (1896) es una novelita de Juan Ochoa Betancourt (1864-1899), escritor avilesino autor de otras dos novelas cortas, doce cuentos y más de cien artículos periodísticos. De corte costumbrista, muy sencilla, sin grandes pretensiones, es una buena opción para pasar ahora que llega el frío una tarde tranquila en el sofá con la mantita y, por ejemplo, un buen te con unas ricas tortas de aceite. ☕ El ejemplar que he manejado es un facsímil publicado por la Fundación Caja Rural de Asturias en 2008 de la edición de Juan Gili (1900) con prólogo de su admirado, gran amigo y mentor Leopoldo Alas, una semblanza biográfica y crítica por su también amigo Rafael Altamira e ilustraciones del gallego Arturo Carretero. El volumen contiene además ocho cuentos, algunos artículos y poemas.
Mój ulubiony Holmes. Zaczytywałam się kiedyś w Conan Doyle'u, Agacie Christie i in. Być może dlatego do tej pory powieść detektywistyczna to mój ulubiony "kryminalny" gatunek. #StudiumwSzkarłacie , #SherlockHolmes , #AutumnReading , #BookLovers , #Bookstagram , #ReadingIsCool , #Bookworm , #CzytamBoLubię , #SetnaStrona , #Książka , #Books , #ILoveBooks , #Booknerd , #DobraKsiążka , #Bookaholic , #KochamCzytać , #bookish , #polishbookstagram , #bookishfeatures , #bookmorning , #polishreader , #bookporn , #classicliterature , #bookaddiction , #igbook , #bibliophile , #bookphoto , #bookphotography , #currentlyreading ,
At the beginning of the year I made a stack of 20 unread books from my shelf and PROMISED myself I'd read them before the end of the year (a similar plan failed in 2017...) And here I am with about 2.5 months to go and I am half way through my last two - two which are so very different from each other! My first short story collection for the year and my first Woolf...ever 😳. Who else has an unfathomable amount of unread books on their shelf or 'acquires' books faster than you can read them? -Rikki • • • #mrsdalloway #virginiawoolf #beginendbegin #loveozya #daniellebinks #rikkireads #bookstagram #bookish #bibliophile #igreads #instabook #readersofinstagram #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife #teacherswhoread #booklover #booknerd #bookaddict #currentlyreading #readwomen #aussiereaders #badassbookbabes #amreading #booksandtea #theunreadshelf #bookclub #yafiction #classicliterature #bookbuyingaddiction #bookbuyingaddict
Just a few pictures from the day! The boys and I went into our church for men's Bible study/CKBC tonight! It was a busy day with homeschooling, and it was refreshing to have fellowship with other men of God! And then the night finishes off with some prayer time, Bible reading, and Black Beauty. :-) #blinddadlife #blindparent #fatherhood #biblicalfatherhood #dadofboys #raisingboystogodlymen #homeschooldad #ilovemyboys #mypreciousbslessings #Christianfaithworks #prayer #readtoyourkids #classicliterature #Godisgood

Is the golden age of illustrated books a thing of the past? We're all familiar with the same old vintage illustrations from classic books. Fresh and modern artistic styles would certainly shake things up! We'll be incorporating beautiful and modern art throughout our limited edition books to enhance stories and evoke emotions. So watch this space! #waterbell #waterbellbooks #limitededitions #beautifulbooks #art #book #modernart #illustrations #literature #beautifulart #revamp #classicliterature #classicnovels #vintage #newart #artists #artistic #stories #classicstories #classic #classics
I’m a dits and forgot I had stuff done to put up. Not putting it to waste because I love how the grey made the watercolor paper look marble-esque. Accidental of course, I didn’t have a clue that this would be the after effects of the simplest wet on wet technique. But enough of that, this is day 13-15’s prompt with @letters_from_jessica @shcass #letteringcreepylit Still getting the hang of it, not quite there but practice does bring perfection so onwards and up. . . . #moderncalligraphy #calligraphy #goodtype #handtype #dailytype #scriptlettering #practice #october2018 #calligram #ecolinewatercolor #handlettering #lettering #handlettered #calligrabasics #letteringdaily #literature #literaurelover #classicliterature #handdrawntype #dailylettering #letteringleague #modernscript #letteringporn #charlesdickens #achristmascarol #dippen #dippencalligraphy #pointedpen #pointedpencalligraphy

Treasure Island. ~ I must have read it a dozen times as a child. It’s got pirates and drama, violence and heart, a young protagonist and high adventure - it’s even got its own treasure map inside! ~ I also happen to have the N. C. Wyeth print from the cover of this Bantam Edition framed and hanging in my office. ~ And although the world has a plethora of entertainment options now available... and reading must not be considered “cool” by the coming generations - it saddens me more kids don’t... and specifically, that they don’t read the classic tales of daring and adventure. ~ Robin Hood The Count of Monte Cristo Arabian Nights The Odyssey The Deerslayer Last of the Mohicans Ivanhoe La Morte D’Arthur Robinson Crusoe Call of the Wild And yes... Treasure Island. ~ THESE are stories to fire the imagination and fuel the youthful dreams of a generation... ~ If you, or your children and you, haven’t sat down some blustery, autumn day with a cup of something wonderful and whiled the hours away with one of these books - well then my friend - you haven’t lived. ~ Here’s to timeless adventure on the high seas!! ~ And reading. Always to reading. 💪🏼🤓🙏🏻 ~ #treasure #treasureisland #classics #classicliterature #robertlouisstevenson #ncwyeth #bantamclassics #pirates #readmore #readmorebooks #readclassics #readwithyourkids #readwithyourkidsdaily

2 weeks til Halloween! 69 days til Christmas! 2018 is wrapping up, y’all. And yet 2010 still seems closer than 2020. Time is wild. 😂 * * What’s your favorite go-to meal? I like to cook quick easy dishes, and stuff I can throw in the crock pot while I’m at work. Lately I’ve been all about naan pizza- so fast to make and you can just throw whatever you’ve got on it and it’s delish. * * * * #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #instabooks #igreads #mansfieldpark #janeausten #bookcover #flatlay #canterburyclassics #wordcloudclassics #classics #classicliterature #literature #carpelibrum #avidreader #allthebooks #read #reader #reading #bookcollector #bookcollection #bibliophile #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookworm #booklover #bookish
Day 12: Call me Ishmael... wait, that’s not my name... call me Mia! Ahoy, maties! All aboard on our whale watching excursion! All was going swimmingly until we came in the sights of a majestic white whale... & Oswald turned into a reel nervous wreck! Seems they used to be friends until Moby stole his girlfriend. I could barely fathom how mad Oswald got, almost enough to keel. Don’t worry, with a stern talking to, we eventually got him calmed down & reminded him there are other fish in the sea. Although he may never be close friends with Moby again, I tried to anchorage him to at least not hold that grudge anymore. He agreed it only hurts himself to keep being that angry. This may be the berth of a new Oswald. Until our next destination I hope you all have a swell day, my friends! -Mia & Oswald 🐋🌊⛵️⚓️🐳 #postcardsfromtheotterside #otterlylost #inktober #inktober2018 #ink #copic #micron #drphmartins #mobydick #classicliterature #hermanmelville
It’s a bloody wicked #wristwarmerwednesday , Bookwyrms! This Barnes & Noble is Edition of Dracula is simply gorgeous! I don’t his the stores carry this particular edition anymore...I haven’t gone to B&N in like 3 months. • • This is what I call a Blood Shot. Just some O Neg. in a shot class. Lol I’m kidding...I only drink animal blood. A little bit of vampire insomnia so I thought I’d take is picture just to pass the time before nightfall. • • I’m trying to make a joke but it’s kinda lame.. I also tried my best to make this shot look like it was taken at night but too many reflective surfaces betrays the daytime setting. • • Anyways, I really feel like my spooky posts are not as creepy or dark as they should be. I absolutely nailed it (pun intended) during the Ghost week. However, since then I feel like I’ve fallen short of what I’m trying to accomplish with this Halloween mood. Mostly, I’m not that great at arrangements and my lighting (I use only natural light) is absolute rubbish. Additionally, I lace the various spooky props and accessories to enhance my photos. Ok that’s all I have to say. I just needed to vent a bit of my frustration with how I feel about my attempt at creating a spooky vibe on my page. • • Question: What spooky or scary movies or shows have you watched this month? What do you plan on watching? • • Answer: So far, I’ve been watching the new season of American Horror Story. Additionally, I’ve viewed the new shows on Netflix like Creeped Out and The Haunting of Hill House. I am looking forward mostly to The Nightmare Before Christmas Bookstagram Movie Night on October 25th! Make sure you join me and @trissinalovesbooks for the discussion. All participants get a free book mark from @drawntothepages • • Please leave your answers below • • • • #dracula #bramstoker #vampire #vampires #princeofdarkness #gothic #gothicliterature #classichorror #classicliterature #spooky #lacegloves #bookish #bookandcandle #bookandbeverage #bookdragon #booklover #bookworm #bookwyrm #booknerd #bookaddict #bibliophile #bookstagram

Our new obsession. Daisy and I had a restful afternoon of reading and we discovered this. So good. Belle was at Nanny and Grandads until bedtime tonight, having fun whilst we did lots of horrid hospital time... So we are very happy to have her home and show her this tomorrow. #anneofgreengables #classicliterature #inspiringcharacter #lovely #restfulday #tired
October 2018 #RiotGrams no. 11 is #favoritefemalecharacter . It's really difficult for me to pick one favorite of anything most of the time, especially when it comes to books. There are just too many amazing females in literature. Here I have my favorite from childhood. I wanted to BE #pippilongstocking . Not just because she had no parents present to answer to, but because she lived with a horse, was smarter than most adults & was fiercely loyal to her friends. She was weird & she cared not one bit what others thought of her. This edition of the book is my favorite because it's illustrated by @laurenchildthatsme , creator of #charlieandlola whom I absolutely adore! Then there's #hesterprynne who is about as badass as they come, imho, standing up to the tyrannical Puritan patriarchy. She is the original #nastywoman of literature & #nathanielhawthorne created her during a time when women in the US, particularly in New England, were finding their voices & standing up to the male establishment. Lastly, a recent read for me, @kristinhannahauthor 's #thenightingale features a heroine in Isabelle Rossignol whom I find to be a woman of unmatched bravery & courage. She is a new favorite of mine, as is her real-life inspiration, Andree de Jongh, who worked with the Belgian Resistance to get downed airmen to safety. #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booksofig #igreads #instareads #bookish #bookaholic #bookworm #bookphoto #bibliophile #booklover #reading #readersofinstagram #historicalfiction #classicliterature #childhoodfavorites
#octoberallalong no. 17: smallest book. The smallest book I own is this compact version of all of Jane Austen's novels, it's no bigger than my hand! 😂 this tiny book includes all of her books but made shorter and less formal. It's good for when you want a reminder of Austen's novels or just want to read them all in one sitting 😂 * * *  #booksbythewoods #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #leaves #bookphotography #bookish #bookishfeatures #books #bookstagramfeatures #bookworm #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #instareads #classicliterature #instadaily #janeausten #garden #autumn #fall #themagicofbookstagram

Just a quick post to say I’m not gone, I’m just deep in nineteenth century France. • Yes, this is over 1400 pages, but it’s actually a pretty easy read because things are always happening. Lots and lots of plot! • Fall is a great time for big books. • • • #bookish #bookishcanadians #bookstagram #canadianbookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookworm #reading #bibliophile #booknerd #booklover #igreads #igbooks #bookaholic #amreading #bigbook #bigbooks #currentlyreading #countofmontecristo #montecristoctober #readwhatyouown #classicliterature
QOTD: favourite classic children's book? Just try to guess mine, it's really really hard. So, I finished Heulen which is the second book in the Mond Trilogy. I start my personal editing in December, fixing up the first draft to make it second draft quality, then fixing that up to make in third draft quality. Then I take a break and cry for a week before just continuing with drafts.

Update! I finished Lady Midnight yesterday and I LOVE IT SO MUCH!! I want to re-read it immediately, but I have a bunch of books to read and then in november I'm starting Lord of Shadows. Gaah 💔💔💔💔 IT. WAS. SO. GOOD. Anyway. I am starting Frankenstein, which is a re-read for me. But I love this book and it's so perfect for Halloween month 🎃👻💀 ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●● I AM SO TIRED, sorry if I've been a little inactive lately I'm just so freaking tired. 😴😴😴😴😴😴 #bookstagram #reading #reader #bookobsessed #booksbooksbooks #bookoholic #bibliophile #bookworm #classics #classicliterature #frankenstein #maryshelley #halloweenreads #octoberreads

The searing, visionary memoir of founding Black Panther Huey P. Newton, in a dazzling graphic package⠀ ⠀ Eloquently tracing the birth of a revolutionary, Huey P. Newton's famous and oft-quoted autobiography is as much a manifesto as a portrait of the inner circle of America's Black Panther Party, which is recognizing its 50th anniversary in October 2016. From Newton's impoverished childhood on the streets of Oakland to his adolescence and struggles with the system, from his role in the Black Panthers to his solitary confinement in the Alameda County Jail, Revolutionary Suicide is smart, unrepentant, and thought-provoking in its portrayal of inspired radicalism.⠀ ⠀ For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.⠀ ⠀ #RevolutionarySuicide #HueyPNewton #ClassicLiterature #BlackPanther #BlackPantherPartyForSelfDefense #Radicalism #BlackBookStore #BlkCreatives #BlackWriters #BlackAuthors #SupportBlackBusiness #WeBuyBlack #DiverseBooks #ReadersAreLeaders #WellReadBlackGirl #GoodBlackReads #AfricanLiterature #DiverseReads #BlackEducation #ShopBlack #SupportBlackOwnedBusinesses #BlackEnterprise #NationalBlackGuide #BooksForBuilding ⠀ ⠀ https://buff.ly/2DhLcdd

“Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken.” - 𒀭 My absolute all-time favorite classic is Emma, written by Jane Austen. I adore Jane Austen, and I owe my love of classics all to her. - 𒀭 Do you read classic literature? Which book is your favorite? 🍁

Out of all of the literature I had to read in school, To Kill A Mockingbird was one of my favourites (alongside The Outsiders). It was an inspiring story with some great characters and some memorable scenes.

Originally published on this day in #1851 , #mobydick only sold 3,715 books while author #hermanmelville was alive. It was not until author Carl Van Doren called@it “one of the greatest sea romances in the whole literature of the world,” in 1921 did its status as an #americanclassic take hold!

"Chinua Achebe asserts Conrad as 'a bloody racist.' Conrad dramatizes Africa as 'a place of negations[...]in comparison with which Europe's own state of spiritual grace will be manifest.' The blacks in #heartofdarkness (1896) are seen as complete savages and are denied speech, and what little speech they do have only condemns themselves. However, without Heart of Darkness perhaps Achebe wouldn't be influenced to write #thingsfallapart (1958) which depicts imperialism from the indigenes' point of view." I'll have to read Things Fall Apart soon after reading Heart of Darkness, I believe that reading both has a very important part in history. (and all of Achebe's other works because I know he's one of the best) #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookish #instabooks #instareads #booksbooksbooks #booklover #bookloversunite #bookaddicted #bookobsessed #bookworm #booknerd #bibliophile #bookreview #history #literature #classicliterature

This week I finally read Peter Pan. 🎉 . Recently I've been reading a bunch of classics but only because a lot of stories reference them. And I didn't want to miss a part of a story because I hadn't read the classic. But now I'm good. 🌻 . Also I'm participating in the #spookathon and I'm reading Dracula. So there goes another classic. 🤗 . . . . #bookstagram #bookblogger #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookphotography #booklove #bookstagrammer #bookworm #bookporn #booknerd #booklife #bookaddict #bookishfeatures #igreads #mybookfeatures #igbooks #reader #bibliophile #instabook #tbr #peterpan #classicliterature
Really enjoyed The Castle of Otranto and would recommend to anyone starting out in the #gothic genre! 😱 . . I'm moving on now to Eugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin ahead of seeing the opera on November 3 at @canadianopera in #Toronto ! I've never been to an opera and felt like there was no better chance than to go see a famous piece of Russian literature performed on stage. #coconegin has been getting rave reviews already so I'm really looking forward to it! . . Have you been to the opera? Let me know what you saw and if you enjoyed it! . . #pushkin #poetry #russianliterature #literature #reading #reader #bookstagram #book #bookworm #booklover #classicliterature #opera #music #bookaholic #bookish #igbooks
Back in stock (link in bio) It's that time of the year again...and as the darkest days approach, I feel it's time for some "infernal" proverbs.😉 This series of 9 dishes is inspired by the english poet and artist William Blake. In his “The Marriage of Heaven and Hell” (1793) Blake expresses his romantic and revolutionary beliefs. The famous “proverbs of hell” come from a place of unrepressed energy, they are unconventional , paradoxical and provocative. No dish would have been painted without the music of the amazing, always inspiring Ulver🙏 . . . . #frases  #literature #poetry #poem #bookstagram #booklover #bibliophile #booknerd #ageofaquarius #freewill #williamblake #ulver #proverbs #truth  #poetic #poesia #frasi #aforismi #quotes  #classicliterature #meditate #reading #wordporn #hell #blackmetal #norway  #homedecor #englishliterature
@braveliteraryworld asked which book began your love for classics. It was a lovely question and it took me back to a scholastic fair and picking up Little Women. That was my first classic and it definitely sparked my appreciation for the classics. I love classics because I believe they set the foundation for the modern literature we love today. There’s so many references that can be missed without some knowledge of the classics. Classics have endured because they carry with them a universal message that transcends time. Classics have also influenced many of our favorite writers today. They can also let us time travel back to a time and imagine the impact that that book had in its time period. We have to appreciate them for the time they are speaking for, while acknowledging the not good bits of them. We can’t deny that they are true products of their time. As Ta-Nehisi Coates wrote in Between The World and Me, “Tolstoy is the Tolstoy of the Zulus,' wrote Wiley. 'Unless you find a profit in fencing off universal properties of mankind into exclusive tribal ownership.” . . #classics #classiclit #classicliterature #bookstagram #igbooks #igreads #instabooks #instareads #bibliophile #bookworm #booklover
Allow me to show off my current Wyndham collection 😁. I still want to add Trouble with Lichen and Chocky. I’m in love with this edition 😍. 🍂🍂🍂 I haven’t done much reading as i’m on a holiday trip abroad with my parents and my sisters. I’m still reading Howards End when i’m not busy. I’m pleased to report that the story is growing on me. 🍂🍂🍂 #johnwyndham #sciencefiction #classicsciencefiction #thechrysalids #themidwichcuckoos #thekrakenwakes #thedayofthetriffids #literature #classicliterature #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagrammerindonesia #bookstagramindonesia #readersofinstagram
The New Series Starts Here..... As we know, Most storylines are basic. And the secret to increasing the ‘interest factor’ is connectivity, for without that single element the Periodic Table is useless. Today, we are living in heavy times, with most people buoyed by the World’s constant distress signals, none of which are going away anytime soon. One cure to alleviate mental strain is Culture,- The Grade A Version, the kind that solicits our active interpretations. The focus of this Page is Great Art, the specific arena being Film and Literature contributions that retain one’s thoughts a little longer than today’s 30 second ‘caption plug!’ Second, This Page is also about connectivity, Your relationship to my relationship to Two Wondrous Subjects. And Yes, the majority of my titles travel back through time, and the reasoning behind these motivations is a simple one: You have to look back to move forward! Remember, ‘The Landscape is witness to a story that has passed.’ A couple things: 1. The Editor Letter will now be our little chat time,- CONNECTIVITY becomes our language. 2. The ‘Category Title’ Post (always the 2nd Post) will preview that particular month’s subject,- clarification is now key. 3. Series Two(Categories 13-24) establishes a different approach whereas it’ll be more about ‘tending’ to one’s thoughts vs ‘addressing’ dramatic appeals. 4. THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY FIRST YEAR A SUCCESS! Year Two Begins..........

🐴 She wanted a pic with the book because she thought her outfit matched the cover. 😂 I’ve never been one for animal stories but it’s nice to have a little one who is. When Black Beauty was first published, its first person narrative from a horse’s perspective made such an impact on its readers that it began to change the way animals were treated. . . . #blackbeauty #annasewell #classics #childrensclassics #childrensbooks #literature #classicliterature #booklover #bookworm #readingislife #reading #readmorebooks #kidsbooks #bookgram #bookish #reader #readingtime #igreads #bookstoread #bookstagram #booksbooksbooks
