I read this tonight. All of it. I am never not in awe of writers who take the hardest things and make them so young people can understand.

✨STAFF PICK SUNDAY✨ Rachel, Reader Services Librarian, chooses Neverworld Wake by @marishapessl from the high school collection. She says, “I enjoyed the layered mystery and general unease. Just when I thought I knew what was going on, another twist would send me (and the main character) down another path.”

This magnificent library belongs to the Dutch Parliament. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was built in the 19th century, when there was no electricity, so the roof is a leaded glass dome to allow as much light in as possible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reporters of the Parliamentary Reporting Office record proceedings & debates verbatim. In total over 100,000 volumes of verbatim reports ( #Handelingen ) are stored there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I personally adore the cast iron spiral staircase. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #LibraryPorn #Libraries #library #OldLibrary #TheHague #DenHaag #Netherlands #Netherlands 🇳🇱 #Dutch #DutchParliament #Handelingenkamer ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #gigidanielle #romancenovelist #romancewriter #romance #author #writer

“Criadas y señoras” de Kathryn Stockett. sinopsis: “Jackson, Missisippi, 1962. tras acabar sus estudios universitarios, la joven Skeeter regresa a casa, sin la menor ilusión por buscarse un marido como pretende su madre; Skeeter sueña con una vida diferente, dedicada a la literatura. Al mismo tiempo, Aibeleen, una criada negra que ha educado a diecisiete niños blancos, pierde a su único hijo en un desafortunado accidente. Su mejor amiga, Minny, conocida por su rebeldía entre las señoras blancas, encuentra trabajo en una casa de una familia recién llegada que aún no conoce su fama. Cuando Skeeter conoce las historias de Aibeleen y Minny empieza a imaginar un proyecto clandestino y liberador.” La historia, la forma de escribir y los personajes me encantaron, estoy segura que es uno de los mejores libros que leí hasta donde va del año. habla de algo tan horrible como el racismo en su punto máximo, donde parecía que no serlo era lo malo. debo admitir que vi la película antes de leerlo, me había enamorado tanto que no tuve otra opción que leérmelo. mi subconsciente me dice, tenías que leerte este libro, ahora ya es parte de ti. 💖 ¿leyeron el libro? ¿o son cómo yo y se vieron la película antes? (no los juzgaré, soy igual que ustedes)

One step closer to my #dreamdecor ! Not much #sundayreading done today because.....⠀ 📚⠀ I bought a new dining room/library table! 🎉. Mine has such a pretty patina and cool grooves on the apron that I can leave bare or sometimes cover with a pretty linen depending on my mood.⠀ See Stories for a #sneakpeek and to discover one of my favorite shops in the Hamptons.⠀ •⠀ Interior design by @carolinairving

Shortly after the death of a young woman David Shelley once helped protect, her parents discover that she had fallen into a dark and seedy world of drugs and online pornography. The father demands retribution against those responsible, but his desire for revenge will make enemies of people that even Shelley may not be able to protect them from, and take them into a war from which there may be no escape.

One of my favorite things about writing is the bounty of friends that seem to come with the hobby. I especially love seeing the books of my friends out in the wild. @bradenbellauthor I took this at the library last week. It made me happy to see you represented. 🙂 #authorlife #libraries #read

The library card is a passport to wonders and miracles, glimpses into other lives, religions, experiences, the hopes and dreams and strivings of ALL human beings, and it is this passport that opens our eyes and hearts to the world beyond our front doors, that is one of our best hopes against tyranny, xenophobia, hopelessness, despair, anarchy, and ignorance. –Libba Bray #library #libraries #books #rylands #john #manchester #mcr #welovemcr #ilovemcr #city #architecture #learning #stories #history #historic #adventures #book #scripts #records #photography #picoftheday

Banned books are the best books. Each one introduced me to a whole new world and perspective I never imagined. I still remember when my elementary school removed Harry Potter from the shelves. Copies of The Sorcerer’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets were more valuable than Fruit Rollups! Proof that the desire to read can’t be snuffed out... or 11 year-olds are more stubborn and cunning than the nuns gave us credit for. 😉 What is your favorite banned book? - - - - - #banned #bannedbooksweek #bannedbooks #harrypotter #theboywholived #perksofbeingawallflower #ofmiceandmen #thecatcherintherye #thegreatgatsby #lookingforalaska #amreading #ireadya #reading #library #libraries #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookshelves #booknerd #booklover #bookaholic #bookworm #shelfie
