    Zayn is already hot and he hella basic; so imagine if he had messy hair and glasses and sat in coffee shops rocking maroon sweater paws and reading O. Henry and just waiting for someone like you to come discuss how the author approaches the subject of time and its limits
    Aaaagghh

    Anonymous said: Omg Liam gained lots of weight, or am I seeing things?? I always considered him the health freak? What happened? (not saying hes fat or anything, just confused)

    zayncangetsome:

    he did gain..but he did not gain weight…he gained a

    SQUISHY LOVE PILLOW

    and he is a health freak….as in “i want you to have a HEALTHY amount of ORGASMS tonight, ladies and gentlemen” and he has an appetite for LOVE

    so you gotta ask yourself..are you down with the LPLP ? the ~~~Liam Payne Love Pillow~~~ ……if u ain’t down then u a clown with a frown and u need to evacuate the premises immediately

    Body positivity, One Direction, and the phrase “u a clown with a frown” = happy me

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 
While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.
That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.

So much reblog.

All of the reblogs!
But make sure to read this essay about how Amazon is better for writers than for publishers, too.

    "Beauty is not long hair, skinny legs, tanned skin or perfect teeth. Believe me. Beauty is the face of who cried and now smiles, beauty is the scar on your knee since you fell when you were a kid, beauty is the circles when love doesn’t let you sleep, beauty is the expression on the face when the alarm rings in the morning, it’s the melted makeup when you have a shower, it’s the laughter when you make a joke you’re the only one who can understand, beauty is meeting his gaze and stopping understanding, beauty is your gaze when you see him, it’s when you cry for all you paranoias, beauty is the lines marked by time. Beauty is what we feel in the inside which also shows outside us. Beauty is the marks the life leaves on us, all the kicks and the caresses the memories leave us. Beauty is letting yourself live."

    - Emma Watson.    (via innocentium)
