Putting a message on a wall can be a much more effective way to reach the masses than expecting them to go find a book and learn it themselves. Some men just want to watch the world learn, regardless of medium. This collection of street arts details some memorable lines from famous books, hit the pictures to see which author and title, if you didn’t already recognize them immediately.

To me, this post might be just as important as the bible.
One of my classes. My elderly teacher taught us this because he really cared about books.
Why does no one teach us these things anymore?
I get so uppity when someone breaks the binding on my books.
Holy crap. Sending to all my librarian friends immediately.

So cute! What a great idea.
“My local library branch started doing this “Blind Date with a Book” thing, thought you guys might like it. The shelf was full when we got there, but was like this as we were leaving. The books are wrapped in paper and have different designs on them, and then a few words vaguely describing the subject matter of the book. Things like “Drama”, “Plot Twists”, “espionage”, etc. The only thing exposed on the book is the barcode that you use to scan the book out. I thought it was a pretty cool idea.”
terrific. excellent. wonderful. brilliant!

We LOVE Eljay’s.
This year’s All Hallow’s Read posters. Spread the word, and share the love of reading!
I’m pretty sure no one reads my blog, BUT if someone does, and that someone comes to my bookstore (Eljay’s Books in Dormont) and they say “Hey Chris, I saw your tumblr, give me a horror book” I will let them pick out two of the $2.50 paperbacks (or I can pick them out) from the horror section. One to give to a friend, one to read for All Hallows Read. So there.
When in Pittsburgh, go to this bookstore!!!
