Critical Mass of Books

Stories and Pages and Words and Ink and So Many Things to Read

“Words are ripe pomegranates
they fall to earth
and open themselves.
The inner will be turned outwards
the fruit exposes its secret
and shows its seed.
A new secret.”

—   Hilde Domin, “Words”, trans. Meg Taylor & Elke Heckel (via litverve)

Thanks to the lovely books-wrote-my-story being willing to help me out a bit I am now the proud owner of the mythical, hardback,  first edition, of Attachments by Rainbow Rowell!

So happy to help! They make for a beautiful collection. 

Hardback first edition?  I’m so jealous.
