The World of Book Lovers

Post by Prof. Tarma Amelia Black » Mon Aug 12, 2019 2:47 am

I just saw this and laughed and laughed.

Image
Graphic shows a cartoon "Things Book Lovers Do".
Each of these has an illustration with it showing a person, a stack of books, or a person with a book or books.
Read several books at one time...
...while also having a stack of books to read next ...
...and keeping a running list of even MORE books you want.
Feel happy when you remember you get to read your book later.
Feel sad and lost when you finish a great book.
Pause to appreciate a beautifully written sentence.
See the cover of an old book and be transported back to your youth.
Find joy and comfort in rereading a favorite book.
Walk into a library or bookstore and say ... "I could live here!"


Have you seen any graphics, or heard any jokes, about the world of book lovers?

Post them here! Please keep any graphics to 600x600 or smaller.

That's great, Emily! :D (I just bought a bunch of books and have, literally, no where to shelve them. I'm going to have to do some major rearranging!)

I just saw this ... and yes, it's part of the world of book lovers - it's a book store! (Question - Anyone know? Is that the Barnes & Noble 'indication sign'? It looks very familiar to me but I've not been in a B & N for ... far too long ...)

Image

Picture shows shelving in what appears to be a book store (or library) and the sign perched on top of the shelving says "Mystery". Virtually all of the books of the top 4 rows (of 6) are shelved with their spines on the inside of the shelf. No titles/authors visible. Just the fore edge, and front and back cover edges (the side opposite to the spine) are visible. Words at bottom of picture: WELL PLAYED.

Graphic shows profile view of young girl, dressed in cutoffs and summer top, walking and reading a book. She has dark hair which is tied back into a knot on the top of her head. Words shown
"I met a dragon face to face the year when I was ten, I took a trip to outer space, I braved a pirate's den, I wrestled with a wicked troll, and fought a great white shark, I trailed a rabbit down a hole, I hunted for a Snark. I stowed aboard a submarine, I opened magic doors, I traveled in a time machine, and searched for dinosaurs, I climbed atop a giant's head, I found a pot of gold, I did all this in books I read when I was ten years old. - Jack Prelutsky"

Graphic shows picture of a child (profile view), sitting in a chair, with colourful blankets and pillows piled up on and behind her/him. The chair appears to be 'outside'. Snow is coming down and sticking here and there. The child wears a knitted hat and a jacket and gloves and is intent on reading a book. Plant pots show behind and in front of the chair. Buildings loom in the background. The sky is a greyish, pale, purple.

Words above the child "Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are. Mason Cooley"

"A book is a magic portal to another dimension."
Words shown against a background of old appearing books on shelves, stacked every which way. A candle burns on a shelf, with a space around it so it doesn't endanger any books. A couple of books are open; one is face down across some other books, the other is open with the candlelight illuminating the pages. There are scenes from different stories being played out on the floor, between the shelves, on the page of the open book.

graphic shows cartoon of three panels - top panel someone sits at desk reading a book and someone else, behind them, asks (with a smiley face) "Do you like the book I loaned you?" . Middle panel, the background of it is turned reddish with the letters AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH written again and again and the person has turned with eyes wide open and sort of bulging out and mouth wide open -- looking at the one in back (who draws back with concerned look on face). Third panel, the person is looking at book again, with very down mouth/sad expression. The person behind says ... "Oh, you're at THAT part."

graphic, divided into two panels, one above the other, shows a woman sitting cross-legged in a chair (which seems to be sitting, back to wall which is covered with paper, in a room). The chair is pale green, with a couple of dark green cushions in the seat, and appears to be in a wallpapered room. The woman has long semi-curly brown hair, is dressed in an orange long-sleeve sweater and long, dark turquoise pants with (maybe) black ballet slippers. The top panel shows -- She holds a book in her two hands - the name of the book is "Addicting Book". She is intently reading book, face shoved up close to it. "I'm DYING to know how it ends!!"
Down arrow to next panel on right side of graphic.
Bottom panel shows her having put closed book on the left arm of the chair. Both hands are facing the book, palms outwards. Her face shows stress, mouth grimace, eyebrows frowning and eyes squenched. "NO!! I have to read slowly, I don't want it to end!"
Up arrow to top panel on left side of graphic.
