I should write something about this beautiful temple but instead let’s have a moment that I finally finished reading ‘The Penguin History of Modern Vietnam’ after 9 days of only focusing on this book. I learnt a lot and glad I made it but flip me it was not a light bit of holiday reading. #classicmorag #historygrad #penguinbooks #reading #temple #sheisnotlost #femalesolotraveler #starttheadventure #travel #holiday #summer #Vietnam #hanoicapital #hanoi

A new shop to explore and some treasures to be found. Picked up some very nice books at secondhandbook shop out of town this week. Will post a few others over time including my first 1935 Penguin.😎 But for today these three beauties for #seabirdsaturday.

Henry the Fifth: B3. April 1937
Romeo and Juliet: B10. Aug 1937
Macbeth: B12. August 1937

Penguin originally published 37 books over 20 odd years of Shakespeare with the first 21 being the Red Penguins.

The first six came out on the April 1937, followed by another six on the August. Six more in early 1938 and then the final three in 1947.

The final 16 with the white covers came out from 1951 - 1959 along with reprints of the originals.

I have a few of the white ones but these are my first reds. Very nice.

The final two have their dust jackets.

Lolita was published on this day in 1958, making today the 60th anniversary of its release ❤️
.
I know Lolita is a controversial book to say the least (“divisive” might be a better word). It has been banned more times than you can count, Nabokov had a devil of a time getting it published to begin with, and I know more than one person that put it down in disgust mid-way through. Different strokes for different folks and all that - I absolutely LOVED it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Something about reading the internal thoughts of this truly grotesque and horrifying human, but in the most beautiful and haunting prose, really struck me. I adored this book, and I am in awe of Nabokov’s mastery.
.
QOTD: what’s your favourite controversial book? Do you love a book that your friends and family hate? Tell me all about it in the comments!

A board book spin on The Day The Crayons Quit- we meet all the crayons in Duncan's crayon box and what they draw. Simple illustratons make it easy for my 1.5 year old to identify different objects she knows and point to the crayons she recognizes too. The last page is full of color and shows all the things Duncan has colored. Precious! .

‘Your voice woke me up around eight this morning, it sounded unusually close, since, as I discovered upon opening my eyes, you were lying in our bed. You smiled at me and began talking. I made coffee and had a smoke in the office before I ate breakfast with you, and when your mother got up, I came in here to write a new piece.’
.
In Summer, Karl Ove Knausgaard writes about long days full of sunlight, eating ice cream with his children, lawn sprinklers and ladybirds. He experiments with the beginnings of a novel and keeps a diary in which the small events of his family’s life are recorded. Against a canvas of memories, longings, and experiences of art and literature, he searches for the meaning of moments as they pass us by.

Karen Blixen’s time upon the coffee plantations in Kenya reveals the wonderful and unusual a way of life within an African tribe and is carefully recollected through this memoir. Her interaction with their culture was admirable to me due to their somewhat enclosed lifestyle. Her level-headed mindset carries her through to bond incredible friendships with the people of the country. Many would fail at being able to build that bridge of trust.
Admittedly this took me a while to get through not quite my cup of tea but never the less an commendable story with understanding in the value of rich culture. Originally recommended to me by my old English teacher. ‘It was hard work to keep it going; we were never rich on the farm. But a coffee plantation is a thing that gets hold of you and does not let you go’

“There is love in me the likes of which you've never seen. There is rage in me the likes of which should never escape. If I am not satisfied in the one, I will indulge the other.” - Mary Shelley, Frankenstein 🖤

I spent a tranquil afternoon at @arnosvalecemetery which is a truly unique place, full of history, architecture and wildlife. You can even have your wedding here if you’re so inclined! Apparently they also hold night time cemetery tours which sound amazing and in November there will be a performance of Frankenstein which I’m very tempted to book tickets for 💀

This evening I finished reading Thurber's Dogs, by James Thurber.

Renowned for his knowledge of dogs, this is a collection of Thurber's stories and drawings about man's best friend, while actually being representative of the American man of the 20th century.

I picked up this book a couple of years ago from @anyamountofbooks, without actually knowing who James Thurber was. I was intrigued by the subject matter on the front cover, but reading the comical author biography on the back cover was enough to convince me to take it away. Having read it, I'm glad I did.

Well written, richly informative (I learnt a lot about poodles and bloodhounds particularly), and largely humorous, I look forward to reading more of my Thurber Penguin collection.

17.08.18 #currentlyreading Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller.
Weeks and weeks of sunshine, but overcast the day that I want to take a picture! 🤦‍♀️
Nevertheless, the light was rather beautiful and so is the book cover, so it’s a winner! 🙌
Have far have you gone/waited for the perfect picture conditions?
💁‍♀️
I looked wistfully at Claire’s latest book, Bitter Orange in Waterstones yesterday, but am hoping to receive it for my birthday in September.

Do you collect King Penguins? I love these books and I’m going to feature them individually more often because the backs are almost as pretty as the fronts. 💛
Have an amazing Friday, whatever your plans! 💛😁

I have not had a chance to read for at least a week and that saddens me! I am not getting through my #tbr at all. I’ve got a couple of days off so am going to try and get some reading done. This book is one I bought over a year ago. It was not long after I lost my dad and felt that I may relate to the topic. I still haven’t gotten round to it though. And I just love the cover! *
Blurb:
It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.
It's been sixty-five days since the accident that ripped Juniper's world apart. Life without her kind, beautiful, vibrant big sister Camilla is a colder, darker place.
Until she discovers the letter. The letter Camie wrote, but never got to send. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of the accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.
But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card contains Juniper's own secret: a memory she can't let anyone else find out.
An unforgettable story of love, loss, mistakes and memories.

The effort to silence women and belittle them is as old as time. If we fundamentally don't have faith in ourselves we won't speak out and we won't challange the status quo. Don't let other people keep you down, your voice and your body matters because you matter.
I hope everyone embraces #selfiesforbookstagram and takes a little time to appreciate themselves.

Of late I’ve developed an interest in learning about the evolution of life and the history of mankind. Quite a fascinating journey we’ve been through for ages, don’t you think? 🤩 Also, I’m both a theist and a staunch believer of the evolutionary theory, guess contradictions are what make me ‘me’ (sign of a perfect Gemini 🐒) Here’s to my first Richard Dawkins’ book. Have you read any of his books? What’s your favourite one?

73 yıl önce bugün yayımlanan Hayvan Çiftliği romanı aradan geçen onca yıla rağmen hala önemini ve güncelliğini korumaktadır. 1940'lardaki "reel sosyalizm" in eleştirisi olan bu roman, dünya edebiyatında yergi türünün başyapıtlarından biri olarak kabul edilir.

On the menu this weekend: escalivada from #thegreenroastingtin, beautifully photographed by @davidloftus. So simple - aubergines, peppers and tomatoes blasted in a hot oven until charred all over, then torn apart and dressed with basil and roasted garlic. For best results, roast in a single layer in your biggest roasting tin - you can find the recipe on @thehappyfoodie website via the link in my bio ✨

I love this boxed set of Penguin Modern Classics. They are stories, essays and poems by ground-breaking authors who inspire readers to look at things in a new light and perhaps think about things they have never really given any real thought to🤔🤯🧐. I know I am always full of thought and reflection when I read them. I'm making my way through them slowly but surely, find it better that way so I can give myself proper time to digest each book ☺️

"Catcher in the rye" 4.5🌟/5🌟
Mein erstes penguin-Buch (unglaublich schöne Cover, ich sterbe)! "Catcher in the rye" habe ich auf englisch gelesen nach einer Empfehlung von Barry von @barrypierce (thank you for the recommendation, it's fantastic). Ich wusste am Anfang bzw bis zur Mitte des Buches nicht wirklich, was es noch bringt, doch wie bei vielen meiner Lieblingsbücher riss der Schluss einiges noch raus. Damit meine ich nicht, dass der Anfang und die Mitte nicht gut sind, sondern vielmehr wusste ich nicht, was ich nich zu erwarten hatte. Ich wartete auf einen neuen Handlungsstrang, eine Wendung, den Beginn des Abenteuers- dabei ist das Abenteuer keine klassische Reise etc., viel eher ein innerlicher Wandel, der von dem Protagonisten Holden durchzogen wird. Im wesentlichen geht es um einen 17-jährigen, der nicht weiß was er will in seinem Leben und dies innerhalb weniger Tage in New York City (teilweise) herausfindet. Der Schreibstil ist bemerkenswert, da J.D. Salinger es schafft, so zu schreiben , als sei es wirklich ein Teenager der 50er-viel Slang und Flüche, aber auch eloquente Ausdrucksweise und witzige Passagen. 📚

Lastly, The Age of Innocence. This book was about how a society of people in a particular time and place behaved. It tells the story of an affluent young man named Newland who, when he is about to marry his perfect match, falls in love with her disgraced cousin Ellen. Due to the social mores of New York at the time, he is basically unable to do anything about it.

Newland does make a few gestures outside of what he "should," though. Once, after paying Ellen a visit, he sends her a big bunch of yellow roses. These yellow roses are a bit unusual, and a contrast to the lilies-of-the-valley he sends his fiancee May. The yellow roses "did not look like [May]—there was something too rich, too strong, in their fiery beauty." I put yellow roses on the cover to represent Ellen's being different from the rest. This individualism during a time of strict conformity was what drew Newland to her so strongly, hence causing everything that happens in the book. .
