Van Axel Canal, Venice, 1900s
LOOK AT THIS!!! This is a hotel in Oregon that has rooms based on Authors and their beautiful books!! IT IS A BOOK LOVERS PARADISE. Okay…so there are no TVs, radio, phones or WiFi but a floor with a LIBRARY and beautiful theme rooms with OCEAN VIEWS. You can stay in MARK TWAIN, EMILY DICKINSON, HEMINGWAY, AMY TAN, DR. SEUSS, JULES VERNE, TOLKIEN, COLETTE, STEINBECK and MOTHA FUKIN JK ROWLING! I can’t choose. I’m going. I’m staying forever. COME WITH ME.
Just finished an epistolary memoir and wow.
This book really hit home for me. It follows two friends for three years after they graduate college. As they move from place to place—Beijing, New York, Paris, Melbourne, London—they just try to figure out life. As someone who has been out of college for three years and also moved around—not as far as them though—I thought it was a great representation of what this stage in life is like.
Now I just have to get out of this book hangover.
