I'm Not Cordelia


Welcome. This blog is dedicated to: books, tea, photography, Doctor Who, Sherlock, quotes from books I'm currently reading, literary things, books, and reading in general. My hobby is basically reading, so I will post a thing or two related to books I am currently reading.

Currently reading: Nightmares and Dreamscapes by Stephen King.

If you have any questions, or simply wish to chat, please feel free to leave them in my inquiry box. :3

Inquiry Box: insert questions here.
I really like how all bookstores or libraries are quiet. No one talks above a whisper. It’s like everyone is respecting and listening to the voices from the books. It’s truly magical.

You have no idea how I wish this was the case where I work.  However, come 3:00 a bunch of middle school students come in and all of them want to talk at once.  I’ve actually had to yell in order to catch their attention and tell them to please SHUT THEIR HOWLING SCREAMERS.

I am not afraid to die, but to think I haven’t lived. That terrifies me.

Illustrated manuscript of The Witchcraft of Dame Darrel of York by Charles Godfrey Leland, humorist, folklorist, poet, and artist. Leland presents the book as an account of witchcraft practiced by Dame Darrel, “the Wise Woman of York,” in medieval England, though the work is primarily based on Leland’s own research and imagination. The majority of the manuscript catalogs various types of fairies, elves, goblins, and other spirits in alphabetical order, but there are also stories and descriptions of spells, all of which are paired with fantastical drawings. If you’re inspired to page through the full volume, the Digital Library record is here. I recommend page 137 for an entry on phasmation or a “fantome.” This manuscript is found in HSP’s Charles Godfrey Leland papers [0363] collection.

Additional fun fact about Leland: our man Charles G. is the Leland of Leland and Boker, authorized printers of the Emancipation Proclamation.
