I’ve finally finished my pact to read 10 books I already own before I buy any new books, and I’m so glad I did it! I’ve had a few of these for quite a while, so am really glad I forced myself to take a good, hard look at my book shelves and think about why I bought them in the first place. Also, I didn’t feel the slightest bit guilty ordering 5 books just now as a reward.

"All peoples are driven
to the point of eating their gods
after a time: it’s the old greed
for a plateful of outer space, that craving for darkness,
the lust to feel what it does to you
when your teeth meet in divinity, in the flesh,
when you swallow it down
and you can see with its own cold eyes,
look out through murder."

Minus the backstabbing and manipulation and vague plans of murder, I need to become Claire Underwood when I’m older/now.

This is honestly one of the worst emails I’ve ever received. Like why would you put that as your subject.

Rains of Castamere

by Sigur Rós

Now the rains weep o'er his halls
And not a soul to hear.

This is such a gorgeous rendition of “The Rains of Castamere”. The show may get a whole lot of things wrong, but the music is always on point.
