Not to say I haven’t done the same if a book is particularly boring or if I’m so tired I’m falling asleep standing up, but…
I saw this one floating around for awhile. What’s you take on it?
Are you the type to read only a few chapters at a time or if it’s utterly impossible for you to stop after a single chapter once you get started?
Personally, I think you’re a winner for simply picking up the book and starting to read. Be it a page or a chapter or the whole thing in one sitting, you’re a winner JUST FOR GETTING STARTED. There are far too many who don’t even get that far. Consider yourself AWESOME. ❤
Happy March! Atrocious February is over! Let’s start the month off right with some truth. Hard, cold truth about being an addict of a most extreme sort:
It’s funny because these were my tags to this post:
#if someone tries to get inbetween me and free fuckin’ books #I won’t be the one being murdered
(No joke. Hahahahaah~ I guess great minds think alike, huh? xDDD)
At any rate, if the purge DID happen in your town, what would you do and where do you rate your book addiction in regards to this revealing tumblr post?
Would you risk raiding the bookstores or libraries to steal–I MEAN SAVE all the books? Or would you run for cover?
I think you all already know my answer. xD
What rating would you give it?
4/4.5 of 5 Stars
Give us a summary.
Discover the horrible fate of Jonathan York as he sets out on his journey through a spooky forest with an alarming party of travelmates!
Jonathan York has led a boring life — a pointless degree from the community college, a lackluster job at the General Store, and never any desire for something more exciting. But when fate leaves him stranded in a sinister land, he finds himself seeking an adventure of his own. Along the way he encounters ghoulish thieves, ravenous swamp monsters, a dastardly ice cream conspiracy, and a necromancer bent on human sacrifice.
In this beautifully illustrated, four-color novel, Jonathan York’s life takes a decidedly spooky turn!
What did you think of the book?
What a delightful read! I really wasn’t expecting to love this as much as I did, but I’ve never been more glad to be wrong.
The art, the verse and rhyme, the pacing of the story… all of it. Absolutely perfect. From the get-go, I had such a Hotel California vibe going on from this story, and by the end, you definitely knew it was going to be a kicker. The eclectic array of characters were all so wonderful. What an odd little bunch. (I loved you all.)
I enjoyed being strung along for the ride and am so upset to see it done. Most definitely recommending this book to everyone I meet. Don’t be surprised if I end up with a printed copy very soon. ❤
Any warnings you wish to make for your readers?
Some of the imagery might be a bit weird or scary, but overall, it’s pretty darned tame. 🙂

If you’ve spent much time on ‘Tumblr’, you’ll know that it’s sort of a thinking man’s Twitter. Many of its avid users are self-confessed literature nerds, which means that you end up getting some fairly interesting conversions about books going on. Here, we’ve found you fifteen instances when the people of Tumblr got real about books. Sometimes, this ended up with hilarious results, and other times it was just way too true for comfort. If you’re a fan of reading, we’re sure that you’ll understand! Take a look!
I might be a little obsessed.
