Bond came to the conclusion that Tilly Masterton was one of those girls whose hormones had got mixed up. He knew the type well and thought they and their male counterparts were a direct consequence of giving votes to women and 'sex equality.' As a result of fifty years of emancipation, feminine qualities were dying out or being transferred to the males. Pansies of both sexes were everywhere, not yet completely homosexual, but confused, not knowing what they were. The result was a herd of unhappy sexual misfits - barren and full of frustrations, the women wanting to dominate and the men to be nannied. He was sorry for them, but he had no time for them.
- Ian Fleming, Goldfinger

Do you know who's the most famous greek author and what's the most famous greek book? 🤔
Assuming this is for modern times, I believe Nikos Kazantzakis is the most famous author and his "Life and Times of Alexis Zorbas" must be the most well known Greek book globally. His "The Last Temptation of the Christ" and "Christ Recrucified" are about equally internationally well known.
"Fun" fact: Kazantzakis was excommunicated by the Church for the Last Temptation. Most people think he was a more genuine Christian than most of the priests and religious leaders who excommunicated him.

Dangerous Reading Slumps
Crawling out of a reading slump--getting my nails dirty with the letters unread and the sentences unfinished--is messy work. But if we don’t try to dig ourselves out of these metaphors that fail to stick with us; if we don’t try to overcome the mountains of characters that we encounter while trying to leave this cage made of our own hesitations, then how will we read all of the books we want to read? 
The poor books on my shelves will sometimes watch me struggle--fearing that in my haste to find the next read to pull me out of this fog, I will set them aside and never pick them up again. 
But these are the dangers of Reading Slumps.

I Should Have Read That (Tag)
the mortifying ordeal of admitting that I wasn’t tagged by anyone, I just saw this and don’t want to go to sleep 🙃✌️
A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read:
Everyone in my family (like literally my parents, my aunts, my cousin) has a thing for Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurty??? So I have like two copies and everyone keeps asking if I’ve read it, especially after I moved to Texas?? It’s about a cattle drive through the west?? anyway turns out I hate reading about wherever I currently am though so I’m sure I’ll read it next time I move somewhere exotic
A book that’s been on your TBR forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up:
The Guermantes Way - I have no doubt that I will make it through all of Proust in my life, so I’m just waiting for the right time…Although I have been hampered because I started getting picky about editions — new modern library gets a double thumbs down from me (purely for the cover and book design, I’m shallow…the translators are good)
A book in a series you’ve started, but haven’t finished yet:
The Neapolitan Quartet, of which I have read 2 of 4 for the simple reason that I am trying so so hard to not eat all my cake at once
A classic you’ve always liked the sound of, but never actually read:
Far from the Madding Crowd - i guess?? seems emo and pastoral and romantic in a depressing way. my favorite ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read:
To Kill a Mockingbird, lmao
A book you recently impulse ordered/bought but haven’t read yet:
on my ~emergency Nancy Drew errand~ the other day I also got Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage by Alice Munro.
A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet:
I honestly can’t think of a single TV show/film I like where I haven’t read the book? 😬 someone tell me if I’m forgetting one
A book you see all over social media but haven’t picked up yet:
No One is Talking About This, by Patricia Lockwood
Tagging @earlymodernlesbian @tsnazzzzz @fierypotatogirl @endymiondreaming @inabeautifulpie @red-winged-monster @elaine-may @bimbogollum and the person reading this! Tag me so I see your answers :)

Once, in my father's bookshop, I heard a regular customer say that few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later—no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget—we will return." — Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind.

Oh thank god they snapped him out of it, I was about to get worried for a moment that we were about to go down that road once again and I wasn’t ready for it. Aizawa was brought back to the present because he needs to hear the plan for his new hero office.
Tumblr media
OH
OH MY GOD- MY GOD THEY ARE INCLUDING HIM ON THIS AS WELL- THEY WANT HIM TO FEEL WELCOME THERE, THEY EVEN HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE RESERVED JUST FOR HIM- I THINK I MIGHT CRY

I wonder what kind of absolute moron would ever want to mess with a place with you two in it. Like, imagine trying to rob a place where every single person in there is a bio-engineered murder machine that already went to jail before.
Just Imagine that.
