Like a daydream, or a fever

Posted on: Sunday, January 20, 2013


I recently finished a collection of Angela Carter's short stories and completely fell in love. She is an amazing writer who creates strange, creepy, incredibly atmospheric and unique universes. I never wanted this book to end.


I am now currently reading the short stories of Jorge Louis Borges, and it's the perfect book to follow Angela Carter. I love his brain. After Borges I plan to read J.K. Rowling's first novel after Harry Potter.


















Here, have a photo of my face.

  3. i've been slowly working my way through "labyrinths" for a few months; slowly, not from lack of interest, but because i tend to read numerous books simultaneously. in my edition, neil gibson wrote the introduction. definitely check out "neuromancer," if you have not already, complementary text for sure, but with a very different tone and speed. borges really broke ground for much of what we could classify as science fiction, at least as far as texts concerned with time, with shifting dimensions, are concerned.

    happy reading!

    1. I definitely plan to read a lot more William Gibson. The husband has loved him since high school, so we already have a pretty large Gibson library. The Diamond Age is also one of my favorites, so I plan on reading more Neal Stephenson as well.

      I'm almost done with Labyrinths. It can take a while to finish a book sometimes because the main time I get to read is when everyone is going to bed, so it depends on how tired I am. But I am absolutely loving Borges. I now understand how his style is studied in Math classes, as well. There's something very mathematical and architectural about his story-telling. It's amazing.

      Thanks for the comments!

  4. So glad to have found your blog. Your photography really inspires me (I've become lazy and leave my camera at home a lot now) but it's such a great way to illustrate a story, from the books you read, to the trips around Portland you take. Can't wait to check out more photos!

      I've unfortunately been lazy with my camera lately as well. Must be the winter weather. Thank you so much for the comment!
