I have nothing now but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more. … What I dread is the isolation. … There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready.

Ha! There is a valuable lesson to be learned from this infographic:
Be sure that the “horniness” plot line and the “cannibilism” one never intersect.

Do you remember the old days when doing research meant knowing the alphabet and the Dewey Decimal system?

Hey doodler, what's your favorite kind of book to read?

*Disclaimer: all Turkish phrases below are via google translate, I apologize if they are wrong *

Merhaba Timas Publishing! My favourite (Canadian sp.) kind of book to read is literary fiction.  I also read other genres (YA, Sci Fi, Non Fic, memoirs, graphic novels, humour, plays, poetry, philosophy) to try and stay a well rounded reader and hopefully a more open-minded aspiring writer. The one type of book that I have not made enough of an effort to read is definitely fantasy. Right now on my “to read” list there are only two fantasy titles “The Princess Bride" and "The Neverending Story" You can also check out my #books tag to see which books I have been posting about.

Thanks for following! Have a great day C:
