While tracking the ebooks tag I am usually disappointed, finding mostly suspect links soliciting or sharing pirated e-books. Lately I have been noticing more posts sharing links with legitimate promotions (like Cyber Monday deals) and of course the tag is largely authors promoting their own ebooks (which is awesome).
This book is so good, it is life changing. I’m only on page 68 and I feel this way. I’m already looking forward to re-reading it. The end.
LOVE Jon Klassen's work!
Life complete! (for now haha)
Thanks to foxinwolfsclothing <3 :)
Hazlitt is a new digital habitat from the folks at Random House Canada - publishing originally commissioned ebooks, videos, essays and more.
Looks like the beautiful design is matched with some beautiful content, especially enjoying Suzanna Showler’s account of house-sitting for Sheila Heti, How Should a Person House-Sit?
(The name takes after nineteenth century journalist William Hazlitt, not a Lolcat reference btw)

If you haven’t read this instantly classic western-noir, you best repent and rectify that shit. Add The Sisters Brothers to your summer reading list. And put it at the top.
Nice pic c:
‘Here lies Morris, a good man and friend. He enjoyed the finer points of civilized life but never shied away from a hearty adventure or hard work. He died a free man, which is more than most people can say, if we are going to be honest about it. Most people are chained to their own fear and stupidity and haven’t the sense to level a cold eye at just what is wrong with their lives. Most people will continue on, dissatisfied but never attempting to understand why, or how they might change things for the better, and they die with nothing in their hearts but dirt and old, thin blood - weak blood, diluted - and their memories aren’t worth a goddamned thing, you will see what I mean. Most people are imbeciles, really, but Morris was not like this. He shuld have lived longer. He had more to give. And if there is a God he is a son of a bitch.’
Patrick deWitt (2011), The Sisters Brothers.
the wild west meets Shakespeare meets Oliver and Hardy…
Loved this book!
Another blow to today’s “to-do list”.
“I do not know what it was about that boy but just looking at him, even I wanted to clout him on the head. It was a head that invited violence.”

I’ve noticed my favourite book of 2011 is getting more and more love these days. Awesome!
Not that he would learn a lesson from this sign full of odd symbols and lines.
A quick sketch, because I really do need to get better at posting things here! Anyways I am usually not one for fan art but this is Nico from the Eli Monpress books. The books themselves are alright for a fun, very brainless read.
An awesome sketch and fun book suggestion from Alyssa Heron @ Look A Heron!
This is timeless, simple advice that I struggle with daily.
