united by books!

You guys are fantastic. It makes me feel so overwhelmingly connected to the outside world beyond this little box in front of me when I get as many replies as the post about book recommendations. I’m filled to the brim with suggestions now that I’m sorting through on wikipedia and amazon to make a decision, and a trip to the bookstore on my lunch break is planned! (the manhattan libraries suck ass, you have to wait on a list for ages to get a book and the closest to me is 3 aves away towards hell and is so gross I hate stepping foot in it)
