it was amazing
bookshelves: always-reading

My favourite book.

I carry this everywhere, and call it my bible. I very, very rarely read - because I read incredibly slow and enjoy reading outloud instead (which doesn't bode well in public places!), although I write. Constantly. I have read this book hundreds of times, I bought it back when I was 18, in DisneyWorld no less, my sister is obsessed with reading and would spend the first morning of vacation stocking up on books for the beach, literally reading more than I have read in my life on a short trip.

This one day, I was particularly bored of waiting, and started looking around. Instantly this book caught my eye, I was drawn in by the cover, and of course I thought, "don't judge a book by it's cover" so I flipped through to a random page and read the first lines "you don't trade money here, you trade information and skin" from that I was hooked.

I read the last poem first (we all want to know how it ends) "At Fifteen, She Learns" and fell in love, this was the first time I had ever felt like I wasn't completely alone.

Safe to say I bought the book, and read the rest of it (and keep reading it).

Some of the most amazing words I have ever read. Daughter; At Fifteen, She Learns; Sessions; The God of Sleep - my favourites, but I love them all, everyword.
