My dream of a delicious dinner at the famous @comstocksaloon was crushed upon hearing their kitchen was temporarily out of order! Alas, rose came quickly to the rescue, and next door I found the best-ever burata @il_casaro_pizzeria + City Lights Bookstore! #longlivebookstores #thatbreadtho #northbeach #comstocksaloon #ilcasaropizzeria

Added these two into my #library last night. It's funny how growing up, I disliked #reading because I would get teased, yes, I had a "#learningdisability ", at that moment in life I realized the world is filled with sharks, either be a guppy or fight back like a #piranha. With the assistance of a #tutor I fought back. #weareallwinners #weareallchamps #readingrainbow for adults. #donaldgoines is still my favorite. #buyabookgiveabook #longlivebookstores

Lady Chatterley's Lover D. H. Lawrence Bantam Classic edition, 1983 You can see I got it for 20RMB (points to price tag), which could have bought me 4 school lunches back then. ANYWAY. bought this when I was still in university, and I loved it so much I had to share my thoughts on it with my batchmate, who looked at me as if he, as always, disapproved heartily of any decisions I dare to even think of making. Now… while I agree we need more sensuality and less counterfeit feelings in our lives, the book reads a tad too… earnest? I do like Connie, Mellors not so much, not anymore. I felt like, on more than a few occasions, slapping some sense into the man. All that self-pity! Clifford, as always, deserves to be wiped off the face of the planet. #2018readlist #worldpeacethroughreading #longlivebooks #longlivebookstores #longlivestudentdiscounts #bookaddict #novel #sensuality

The Nordic Theory of Everything: In Search of a Better Life Anu Partanen HarperCollins, 2016 As much as I keep telling myself NOT to go into a bookshop when I'm in an agitated mood… not regretting! The author is Finnish, so most of the examples are of Finland, but I suppose there are common threads across the Nordic region. What struck me most were not the specific things the Finnish DO, but how their social contract IS. I know we've been trying to copy the Nordic style of education (among a million other styles), but we don't have their kind of social contract to make it work. I also know the Swedish are having a refugee crisis of sorts because they're not really integrating people into their social contract (which makes them "saviours" and refugees "beggars", not cool). But negativities aside, what I love most about this book and "the Nordic Theory" is how these people, including their government and civil service, KNOW what their social contract, what it entails, and what their responsibilities are. And they FULFILL those responsibilities. imo, more a book on what a social contract should look like and how it should play out rather than the Nordic region per se. #2018readlist #goodreads #goodcoverdesign #longlivebooks #longlivebookstores #bookaddict #worldpeacethroughreading #socialcontract #nordictheory

Wanted to buy a book to cheer up a friend today. Looked in the two homewares shops near work, just about gave up. Did an about turn, kept walking past all the cafes and children's clothing shops, frustrated that there were so many.... intuition told me to keep going. I found, tucked away, @mybookshopbycp - and what a joy it was! I found the perfect book (I hope), it was gift wrapped beautifully for me, and this gorgeous message was behind the counter - listing all the reasons why I particularly favour real books over e-versions. Thank you for keeping the #bookshop going! ❤️🙏🏻 . . . . . . . . #books #booksareart #longlivebookstores #readmore #lovebooks #booksarethenewblack #knowledge #wisdom #health #longevity #neverlonely #openmind#openheart #openyourmind #literacymatters #readingmatters #bookstore #hawksburnvillage #malvernroad#prahran #intuition

My favorite place on Mill. The owners are so sweet every time I come in, and their passion and love for books is amazing. I could sit and talk to them for hours. Holding books that have made it through the decades and even centuries is such a rush. 📖 💕 #longlivebookstores #booklove #books

Irma is a good friend of Tomás Montes's. She owns a beautiful homey bookstore, cafe, & independent cinema in Santiago. Of course I made this gram totally awkward by grabbing an inappropriate book off the shelf but I swear my intentions were good. Irma dice que me tienes que enseñar tu vídeo en bici bajando una montaña @arrieredupeloton #feliznavidad #arrieredupeloton #goodfriends #longlivebookstores 📖😊

To some of us, #friendship means buying someone the most expensive things and expecting those friends to return the favour and buy the most expensive things back. Well, if you think this way, you are completely missing the mark. Friendship is not about what you buy each other at all but about #respect (especially when it comes to borrowed items), #trust and #care. It's about #laughing, #crying, #enjoyingeachotherscompany and overall just #makingtime for each other. Day or night. Crappy #weather or no crappy weather. Busy day at work or no busy day at work. #lifelessons #johngreen #bookworm4life #longlivebookstores #preciousmoments #papertowns
