This book is fantastic.

Professor Moriarty : the Hound of the D’Ubervilles

Just got it for Kindle; very excited to get to A Shambles in Belgravia. (I wonder if Moffat’s read it, or if Belgravia is just that popular for variations on the theme?)


“Books support us in our solitude and keep us from being a burden to ourselves.” — Jeremy Collier (via kajacana)



“I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day in January of 1960; and then again, as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan, in August of 1974.” — Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides.

“But I do go in for books. I love to own books. Though I read few books twice, I have filled every shelf in my house with books, have had more shelves made and filled those too. My books surround me like a cocoon. When I run my finger along the backs of my books they feel like the ribcage of an old familiar lover. Visit my shelves and you will learn much about me.” — Joe Bennett, Beside Lovers (via bookoasis)
