“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”

I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.

Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
—  Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, 1865

Superb Illustrated Edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the looking glass and what Alice found there

This edition published in 1911 is the first time John Tenniel’s legendary illustrations were printed in colour 

sadly the original covers are faded and marked as shown in the photos - but the contents are beautiful fresh and clean

Hello bookstagram! I am SUPER EXHAUSTED after doing a lot of cleaning, plus giving baths to our five dogs, whew! They’re all sweet and adorable though so it’s fine 😊❤️🐶 Anyway I thought I’d do one of the prompts for @bookslayerreads’ photo challenge and I chose the prompt ‘Pink’ which is pretty obvious. I love how this little sea of pink books turned out! Also #pinkbooks tag tagged by @paperfury, thank you! 💗💗💗

Where the quote actually comes from:

“I am just one hundred and one, five months and a day.”

“I can’t believe that!” said Alice.

“Can’t you?” The Queen said in a pitying tone. “Try again: draw in a long breath and shut your eyes.”

Alice laughed, “There’s no use in believing impossible things.”

“I daresay you haven’t had much practice.” Said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
