reading is awesome

anonymous asked:

do you have any pb&j fic recs??? im dyyying!

I sure do!! Now, we’re a pretty tiny ship (only 66 works on AO3, wow!) so honestly if you wanted to set your mind to it you could just go read the whole relationship tag (…like I did. I’ve also read all the bittyparse).

But anyway, I can rec some of my favorite works from the ship!

chemicals in flux (series) by @omgpbandj, both explicit

Rentboy AU! <3 So fun fact, depending on the order in which you read these two fics, you either get adorableness + backstory (impulse -> catalyst) OR angst -> happy ending (vice versa). I personally recommend the second bc I love suffering :^)  Also Allie’s writing is awesome read everything she’s written ever bye

GMF by Sparcck, explicit

Lots of bittyparse, fake dating, and a dancing scene?? I can’t handle it too good. So much tenderness!!

The Rules of Someone Else’s Game by  Freudianity, teen

Jack tells Kent to give the Aces hell. Kent listens. I fall in love. <3

Of Cups and Kitchens (series) by goodmorning,1 mature + 2 teen-rated

Lovely series! Parts 1 & 3 tell the same story through different POVs, and it’s so cool to read both of them :D Part 2 has a bunch of coming-out stories that are often hilarious and touching all at once.

(Love Is) Gonna Keep Us Tied by  psocoptera, teen

Cup magic!! Which is not a thing I knew I liked until I read this fic. 

touchy subject by @ronibravo, mature

This is the first fic I read for pb&j (and in omgcp in general!) and I still adore it. There’s comedy, hot sex, and feelings! What else could I want??

No One Has to Know What We Do by [orphaned], explicit

Camp counselor AU that owns my heart to this day. Bitty’s characterization is really interesting and well-done! His rivalry with Kent is perfect and I love everything about it bc I am bittyparse trash okay.

[Lol PS- @pbj-epifest is a thing that will come bearing (hopefully) many new works in December!! Sign-ups are still open if anyone is interested in joining as a writer/artist/both!]


Spoiler alert! If you haven’t read the world’s great literary classics (and still intend to do so) these comics may reveal key plot points. Well, sort of. For parts one and two of his “Abridged Classics” series, Ottawa-based cartoonist John Atkinson of Wrong Hands has summed up a dozen of the world’s most famous novels in one or two witty lines, humorously distilling vast and weighty tales to a few words. We can’t wait for part three.

Follow the Wrong Hands blog or Facebook page to keep up with Atkinson’s latest comics.

friendly reminder that it’s okay to not read a book if you don’t feel like it, it’s better to read it when you actually want to read it no matter if it have been five week or five years, if you just read it to have read it you won’t enjoy it, if you don’t want to read it right now you can just put it down and read it another day, it’s not going anywhere, I promise!


We love these awesome superhero bookends and shelves by Artori Design. The metal silhouettes of caped crusaders come in two style, saving your books from toppling over using a magnet concealed by the books or raising them up off the ground and into the air using a wall-mounted floating shelf. Both are currently available through designboom.

We’d like to second the suggestion made to Artori by Colossal’s Christopher Jobson: it would be super awesome to see a female superhero silhouettes added to this stylish series.

night-night-gun  asked:

Can you PLEEEAAASE give me a list of great books I could read?? (I like fiction and humour books most, but I can really appreciate everything) also I LOVE YOUR ART bye

HMMM. Lets see… Here are a few books that I’ve read recently that I really enjoyed! :D

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - Very funny and very nerdy, with a fun, adventurous tone! 

The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey - It’s a ZOMBIE BOOK! But surprisingly full of heart and very exciting, felt like reading a movie!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - Very funny, very relatable, and very sweet! :D

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - Again, very relatable, very sweet, I’m not normally much into romance, but this one is an exception!

Legend by Marie Lu - Action packed with a compelling dystopian society and two kick ass main characters! (Also it’s a trilogy and they’re all good)

The Martian by Andy Weir - Very funny and extremely cool, especially if you’re a science nerd! 

This is a photo of the phonebox library on Loampit Hill, Lewisham, which I paid a little visit to earlier! 

I borrowed a book called The Pied Piper’s Poison, by Christopher Wallace because:

  • The Pied Piper is my favourite fairy story
  • I also like poison

I’ll let you know what I thought. And you can watch a brief BBC video report on the tiny library here:


Writer Brian Boone altered the covers of ten classic children’s books to reflect how they’d be perceived by dogs. Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory becomes “Charlie and the Poison Factory.” The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein becomes “The Friendly Toilet.”

We can’t decide which we like more: that Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson becomes “Harold and the Gray Crayon” or that Wilson Rawls’ heartbreaker Where the Red Fern Grows becomes “The Worst Book of All Time.”
