aaron - walks in knowing exactly what he wants - only buys one book. john always tries to get him to buy more but aaron insists he already has too many (which isn’t true; he doesn’t have many books because he likes to reread the same ones over and over) - he also likes to note lines/sections that he really likes with multi-colored post it notes. the more post its a book has, the more often he rereads it
john - will go directly to the graphic novel/comic book section - ends up on the floor surrounded by comics - spends the entire time reading them and ends up buying every one - if he has the funds he usually will buy a book or two regarding social issues ( he doesn’t stock up though because he’ll sneak one from angelica’s collection here and there)
lafayette - usually interested in the biography section - grabs a handful that seem interesting to him (sometimes he’ll find several biographies on the same person) - often shares fun facts abt the people he reads about at random times (“did you know frida kahlo could drink any man under the table?”) - finds a corner to read the first few chapters of each one - only ends up buying one but writes down the names of the rest so he can come back and buy them - if he’s done before everyone else he’ll get a coffee at the café with peggy
hercules - wanders around the store for a little while - makes his way to the kids section - ends up sitting on a colorful carpet and reads children’s books to the kids (he spends the entire time back there) - his favorites arethe quiet noisy book and any Dr. Seuss book - he always uses different voices for each character in the book (he gets really into it - the kids love listening to him read and some parents even join in to listen too)
alexander - spends so much time in the store - gets a few books from every genre - ends up spending way too much money in one trip - his bookshelves are already overflowing yet he promises that he’ll read every book (he won’t) - he prefers nonfiction but will sometimes find an amazing fiction book that he rereads over and over - angelica scolds him, telling him he’s “wasting his money” (alex ignores her but deep down knows she’s right) (she always is)
george - is basically in the same boat as aaron - knows what he wants, buys it, and is done - sits beside aaron and reads while everyone else is busy - disapproves of aaron’s pick, calling it “boring” (little does he know aaron secretly bought a romance novel to read at home but he doesn’t want anyone to know about it. the notebook is a weakness of his)
eliza - looks at the poetry section for a while - she prefers really old poetry and spends afternoons deciphering their meaning - rarely ends up buying much - she already has plenty at home and even has a list of what book to read next (also ang lets eliza borrow from her stock whenever she likes) - after she finds what she wants she’ll go to the kids section and listen to herc read with the kids - she picks out more kids’ books and stacks them up beside herc
angelica - actually doesn’t need to buy any books - usually brings extra money in the case that her sisters don’t have enough - brings the book she’s in the middle of with her - spends some time looking around and writes down the names of ones she’s interested in so she can borrow them from the library later on - owns every single classic novel(little women, pride and prejudice, etc.) - has lots of books about social issues/feminism - goes b/c she enjoys the atmosphere of bookstores - also b/c she loves the sound of new book spines cracking
peggy - goes to the café first - gets a really fancy drink - looks for books with fun covers and reads the summaries in the front covers of each - ends up only choosing one because she spent too much money on her overpriced frappucino - while in line she’ll probably pick up some colorful pens - goes back to the café to read her book or draw designs on laf’s arms with her new pens
Hey, I’m a bi ginger from a small town in England. I love (and only
watch) the shows Supernatural, Hannibal and Sherlock and I’m also a
drawing fanatic. I’m the biggest nerd going (I’m in a book club). I love
animals and the environment (no littering kids), I’m quite noisy but
ridiculously shy at the same time - I’d rather stay in than go out. My
personality type is INFP-T, so y'know, hmu.
Preferences: Preferably 14-17 year olds, no homophobes, racists, etc. I suppose people who love animals and like a good debate.
It’s finally happening! Andrews McMeel will be publishing my first book! Quiet Girl in a Noisy World is a collection of short comics that tell a story and personal account of my life as an introvert! I’m so excited to be able to share this with you! More soon!!!
imagine alex turner as the guy whose feet you stumble over while trying to hide from people at a friend’s party because he sits on the floor under the staircase, not so subtly avoiding the noisy crowd, reading a book that he borrowed from a shelf in the living room and sipping from a large cup, and you think it’s beer until he looks up and says: “would like to have some tea? the kitchen is right behind that door and, i think, the kettle is still warm.”
Inktober Day 2: NOISY
Every day Little Bot had to go down into the engine room of the massive airship to flush the fuel cores. He hated this job.
He could handle acrid smell, but the entire space was just too noisy.
My new book Little Bot and Sparrow is out now! Available on Amazon http://amzn.to/2cLEPMF and most bookstores. If you got a copy please share a photo online and let people know what you think. Thanks!
I remember as a very young child being warned that libraries and bookstores were quiet places where noise wasn’t allowed. Here was yet another thing the adults had gotten wrong, for these book houses pulsed with sounds; they just weren’t noisy. The books hummed. The collective noise they made was like riding on a large boat where the motor’s steady thrum and tickle vibrated below one’s sneakers, ignorable until you listened, then omnipresent and relentless, the sound that carried you forward. Each book brimmed with noises it wanted to make inside your head the moment you opened it; only the shut covers prevented it from shouting ideas, impulses, proverbs, and plots into that sterile silence.
Studio Ghibli’s Goro Miyazaki to Direct Ronia the Robbers Daughter TV Anime
Goro Miyazaki (Tales from Earthsea, From Up On Poppy Hill) will direct a television anime adaptation of Swedish author Astrid Lindgrens Ronia the Robbers Daughter childrens fantasy book. The series, titled Sanzoku no Musume Ronia in Japan, will air on NHK and BS Premium this fall. POLYGON PICTURES (Knights of Sidonia, The Sky Crawlers) is animating the 3D CG series in collaboration with Studio Ghibli. The show will mark the first time that Miyazaki is directing a television anime series.
Miyazaki said of the series Ronia the Robbers daughter is a story not just about a girl who grows into adulthood, but it is also a story about the love and growth between a parent and a child, and a story about the bonds between friends. My goal is to create a work that everyone, from children to adults, will be able to enjoy.
The story revolves around Ronia, the only daughter of Mattis, the chief of a tribe of bandits who live in a large castle in a forest. Ronia studies the ways of the mysterious creatures who live in the forest.
Hiroyuki Kawasaki (The Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Sorcerer Hunters, Ryokos Case File, Psychic Detective Yakumo) is handling the series composition. NHK Enterprise is producing the series, and NHK and Dwango are handling production and writing.
Lindgrens (1907-2002) most well known work is her book series Pippi Longstocking. She has also written the Karlsson-on-the-Roof and Children of Noisy Village book series.
I am so excited for this :D seems like Goro is following his fathers path a little more again as Hayao once worked on an anime adaption of Pippi Longstocking and also the first image instantly reminds me of Future Boy Conan.
