    American artist Alexis Arnold grows crystals on classic books. The 30-year-old, from San Francisco, uses laundry detergent to create the crystals which appear after the books are soaked in hot water and left to dry.

    I went to this book store and their books were wrapped up in paper with small descriptions so no one would “judge a book by its cover”

  14. Books

    thunderjac:

    You know a book is good when:

    1. You stay up until it’s finished, even if you have an early class.

    2. You can’t get it out of your head, even if you’re done reading it.

    3. You have no idea what to do with yourself now that the book is done and just kind of sit there.

    (sometimes my body even shakes because I’m just filled with so much love and excitement for the book)

  15. "

    The problem that needs to be fixed is not kick all the girls out of YA, it’s teach boys that stories featuring female protagonists or written by female authors also apply to them. Boys fall in love. Boys want to be important. Boys have hopes and fears and dreams and ambitions. What boys also have is a sexist society in which they are belittled for “liking girl stuff.” Male is neutral, female is specific.

    I heard someone mention that Sarah Rees Brennan’s THE DEMON’S LEXICON would be great for boys, but they’d never read it with that cover. Friends, then the problem is NOT with the book. It’s with the society that’s raising that boy. It’s with the community who inculcated that boy with the idea that he can’t read a book with an attractive guy on the cover.

    Here’s how we solve the OMG SO MANY GIRLS IN YA problem: quit treating women like secondary appendages. Quit treating women’s art like it’s a niche, novelty creation only for girls. Quit teaching boys to fear the feminine, quit insisting that it’s a hardship for men to have to relate to anything that doesn’t specifically cater to them.

    Because if I can watch Raiders of the Lost Ark and want to grow up to be an archaeologist, there’s no reason at all that a boy shouldn’t be able to read THE DEMON’S LEXICON with its cover on. My friends, sexism doesn’t just hurt women, and our young men’s abysmal rate of attraction to literacy is the proof of it.

    If you want to fix the male literary crisis, here’s your solution:

    Become a feminist.
