Y todas las noches bajo la vía láctea parecen eternas
can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…
Aimee Bender, “Debbieland”
You guys know that thing? That thing when you’re reading and suddenly realize that what you’re reading sounds like music in your head? That the words are actually beats and rhythms? That the sentences actually are and always have been jazz riffs? That thing? You know?
Aimee Bender’s stories are, like, really good at doing that thing.
