Book 12 - Here I am, by Jonathan Safran Foer. This one has taken me a few months, but was worth all the time and shlepping around the city. I'm a bit mixed on the first 3/4, but the last 1/4 is a marvel, with incredible prose and several thought-provoking musings on life, family, Judaism, and relationships. I'm still not quite sure I know how the story ultimately ends, but would love to discuss with others who have read it. . . . . . #books #library #judaism #jonathansafranfoer #literature #reading #bookworm #bookstagram
“My life story is the story of everyone I've ever met". . . “What did thinking ever do for me, to what great place did thinking ever bring me? I think and think and think. I've thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it". . . “Mom told me, “It probably gets pretty lonely to be Grandma, don’t you think?” I told her, “It probably gets pretty lonely to be anyone". . .

Pourquoi pas une bouilloire ? Pourquoi le bec ne s'ouvrirait et ne se refermerait-il pas au passage de la vapeur, devenant ainsi une bouche qui pourrait siffler de jolies mélodies, jouer Shakespeare, ou simplement se fendre la pêche avec moi ? Je pourrais inventer une bouilloire qui fait la lecture avec la voix de papa, comme ça je pourrais m'endormir, ou peut-être un ensemble de bouilloires qui change le refrain de "Yellow Submarine", qui est une chanson des Beatles, groupe que j'adore parce que l'entomologie est une de mes raisons d'être, ça c'est une expression française que je connais. Une autre bonne chose pourrait être d'apprendre à parler à mon anus quand je pète. #extremementfortetincroyablementpres #extremelyloudandincrediblyclose #jonathansafranfoer #roman #litterature #incipit #instabooks #instabook #books #bookstagram #bookaholic #points #editionspoints #lisezdupapier

A case for eating dogs: "Unlike all farmed meat, which requires the creation and maintenance of animals, dogs are practically begging to be eaten. Three to four million dogs and cats are euthanized annually. This amounts to millions of pounds of meat now being thrown away every year. The simple disposal of these euthanized dogs is an enormous ecological and economic problem... But eating those strays, those runaways, those not-quite-cute-enough-to-take and not-quite-well-behaved-enough-to-keep dogs would be killing a flock of birds with one stone and eating it, too.... This need not challenge our civility. We won't make them suffer any more than necessary....Can't we get over our sentimentality? Dogs are plentiful, good for you, easy to cook, and tasty." ~ Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. Does Stewed Dog put it into perspective?? There is no need to eat any animal. #vegan #theonlydifferenceisyourperception #crueltyfreeliving #alllivesmatter #health #speciesism #bekindtoeverykind #plantbased #ahimsa #meatismurder #friendsnotfood #govegan #animalactivist #kindness #animalrights #compassion #bethechange #loveanimals #animals #vegansofig #veganism #eatinganimals #jonathansafranfoer #maketheconnection
#bndtpsept17 - Day 21: Love Letters (cover with letters or notes on them) This criteria basically doesn't exist in my collection, and the closest I could find was this masterpiece by one of the greatest authors ever, Jonathan Safran Foer. If you haven't read anything of his, you need to. The cover looks like it's one big letter, so I'm using that as a reason to post it 😉
It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of time. It means loving you even when you're in a bad mood, or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you're down, not just when you're fun to be with. "I love you " means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them, asking in return that you do not judge me for mine. It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love enough not to let go. It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting and needing you constantly, and hoping you feel the same way for me. ~ #JonathanSafranFoer

@Regranned from @unafamiliavegana - Hace algunos años que compré este libro y la verdad siempre he sido muy desordenada con la lectura. Lo empecé y no lo terminé. Ahora, estoy en la tarea de leer libros relacionados con el veganismo y empecé con este que es el que tengo en mi biblioteca. Con resaltador en mano, estaré compartiendo con ustedes las frases más interesantes. #comeranimales #vegansofig #bookstagram #jonathansafranfoer #veganosmedellin #veganoscolombia - #regrann
Spot the differences. #readingnow #JonathanSafranFoer P.s. A couple of people who saw me from a certain angle asked me why do I hold the book upside down 😂

I was blowing slowly on a cup of coffee this morning, when I thought I saw my cat, Honey, in my periphery. Just a shadow, of course. Honey passed away from cancer a year and a half ago. •••• Not that they ever go, really, when they go. I still find her at the foot of the door when I come home, at the bottom of the stairs when I walk them in the dark. She still visits me on rainy nights when my legs are aching, still waits for me in the morning before the sun rises. •••• This is how memory returns. Unprovoked and unexpected; and somewhere between desperately needed and entirely unwanted. Stay. No, go. Return. Stay. No, this hurts too much, go. Stay. And on and on. ••••• Love never ends. Not after death. Not after fulmination. Not after anger. Not after acceptance. Love continues. You can pack it away. You can hide it in places you think you’ll never return. You can burn it, kick it, scrape it from the street and throw it out with the trash. You can drink it into a stupor. You can smoke it into sleep. You can try; but love exists. Long after you swear to anyone who will listen that there is nothing left- there is something left. ••••• So it is. You’ll find yourself with defenses down. Some placid autumn morning, wandering in thought about this or about that, blowing wistfully onto the lip of a coffee mug- and memory will return. •••• I do my best to keep composure. I am, for the most part, fond of the ghosts. I understand; they miss me, too. •••• Because nothing dies, ever, really. Situations change. Things wander. Time moves. Seasons shift. Seasons return. But nothing ever dies, really. Nothing ever goes. Hidden, forgotten, and then returned unexpectedly- but never gone. We carry all things. •••• This is how we grow though we lose; how we become more by becoming less. Bit by bit, day by day, memory by memory- until we are frail and we are motionless, weighed down by the entirety of all the things we’ve lost but haven’t; until we can finally join the ghosts that have been waiting so patiently for us all along. ••••••
Septemberböcker 20 - den senaste boken jag köpt. Det var ett tag sedan jag införskaffade nya böcker (lånar nästan allt jag läser på bibliotek) så senaste kan ha varit "Här är jag" av Jonathan Safran Foer. Inte hunnit ta tag i denna tegelsten än dock, men blev väldigt pepp på att läsa den efter den fina författarkvällen med honom på @malmobibblan tidigare i år! #septemberböcker #septemberböcker20 #jonathansafranfoer #härärjag
Finally finished my 600 page book 🤓 passages like this are why I love Safran-Foer 💜 #hereiam #jonathansafranfoer #quotes #love #loss #identity #failure #forthebest #bookworm #bookclub #ontothenext
The bruises go away, and so does how you hate, and so does the feeling that everything you receive from life is something you have earned. #jonathansafranfoer #everythingisilluminated #orlando #sunset #nofilter #ucf

Stopped by Subterranean Books to make a purchase to help them bounce back from their broken windows (there was a buzzfeed reporter there interviewing one of the owners) and grabbed a coffee and a slice of cake at Blueprint while I was in the neighborhood! #buylocal #subteranneanbooks #blueprintcoffee #coffee #books #literature #octaviabutler #jonathansafranfoer
Thank you for giving me the catchphrase "heavy boots" - Oskar is a great kid and reading can be extremely helpful to recognize that my own heavy boots will become lighter eventually...
