You may have noticed posting’s been a bit skimpy for a while now. That’s partially due to disorganization on our side, but a lot of it has to do with the absence of your wonderful faces!
Please (!!) send in bookfaces! If you like this blog, if you like what we do and what we’re about, then lend us a hand by sending in submissions.
Show us what you’re reading, or what you want to read. If you loathe a book, tell us about it (whether it be textbook or overrated bestseller). We accept bookfaces, magazinefaces, audiobookfaces, textbookfaces, newspaperfaces… we even take pamphletfaces if that’s all you’ve got time to read!
This is us, asking you for help. We love book recommendations and we know you guys do too. Bookface can only be as rad and happenin’ as you guys help make it.
"It is now considered likely that the source of life—which led to our existence and to that of all living organisms today—was a single progenitor, a bit of protoplasm that came into existence in that chaos and possessed the remarkable ability to reproduce itself… We may all stem—every individual organism, from the smallest bacterium to the largest tree, from the simplest to the most complex, together through these billions of years—from that single event."

In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez
An utterly beautiful and heartbreaking work of historical fiction about the Mirabal Sisters, resistance fighters during the Trujillo dictatorship in the Dominican Republic.
Highly recommended. Get ready for all the feels.

"No matter how mundane some action might appear, keep at it long enough and it becomes a contemplative, even meditative act." ~ Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
I hope cats are welcome here. =)
My cat Lucy & I enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon reading What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami. Yes, I am one of those people who read out loud to their cats. Please don’t judge me. =p

So I started reading GoT a few nights ago … and have fallen in love. I live under a rock and haven’t watched the TV series yet - mainly because it requires more brain cells than I have available at any one time. Despite the fact I’ve had to manually sketch out the family lines so I can figure out all the characters, it’s addictive.

I just woke up from a nap and put a weird scarf on my head to appear slightly more presentable.
