Okay so I have this theory about the crash
In the book, Rochester’s accident is actually a huge indicator of his character development, since he goes blind trying to save Bertha despite being generally terrible to her in the past.
In AoJE, the redemption gained from the crash is not yet clear….
I like this theory.
I’ve spent a good chunk of the last day thinking about those first four episodes of The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy. I wasn’t aware of the show as it was working its way through the Kickstarter campaign, so I didn’t really have any expectations.
I’m surprised by how much I like…
WHEN A STUDENT GIVES ME A BLANK LOOK AND ASKS WHAT A CALL NUMBER IS
OR you could happily explain to them what it is so they won’t be afraid to ask questions and use the library in the future.
^^^Noooo kidding. It’s almost like people come into libraries to learn, or something! So maybe library workers shouldn’t be assholes about things they don’t know.
It’s one thing to snark a little in private, but seriously? if this is your attitude towards your patrons, you shouldn’t be working in a library.
A.K.A The Father/King/God of Linguistics (he’s the best seriously)
It’s probably impossible to study linguistics without coming across this man here. So let’s learn a bit about him!
Born in Lisburn, Ireland in 1941 but moved to Liverpool in 1951.
He read English at University College…
Also he is adorable.
i want to open a book store that is 24 hours and people can finally go out at like 2am and be like “i just finished the first book in the series i need the next one stat” or if people are just having a stressful night and want to be surrounded by books
My favorite part about this post is that someone understands that it’s calming to be surrounded by books
a book nightclub.
Someone make this happen pls.
Ya’ll have read Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, right?
AoJE ep 87: SPOILERS
Warning, here be spoilers.
Do you remember the ep where Simon droned on about a brain condition that results in the affected person being unable to recognize a person’s face, but recognizing their voice? This is my prediction for the injury to Rochester. He’ll look blankly at Jane, but when she speaks, he will light up with love.
You heard it here first, maybe. :)
