I freakin’ love Powell’s even more because they do this thing where if you were about to get a used book but its out…. they swap you a brand new book to read… to which I was like, COOL. I was going to get a used hardcover of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman but I love this brand new softcover <3 BUT WAIT THAT’S NOT ALL
THE BOOK WAS SIGNED BY NEIL GAIMAN?! LIKE WHAT? I’m pretty sure that’s an “N” and a “G”…. holy moly if it is his autograp, I got so lucky! I’ve been wanting a book signed by him for ages!!!
Ahhhhh!!! <3 It is a wonderful day for a book lover and collector~

I’m extremely proud to say that the Small Press Expo has now placed more than 1000 graphic novels from Independent publishers in Washington DC-area libraries as a part of our, now four year old, Graphic Novel Gift program.
And we are just getting started. I’m not going to be satisfied until SPX sponsored books are in a library in every state. And then every library, period.
Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).
are you shitting me
