OTHER things on my shelf: kinda book-related

Outlander T-shirt
CHECK out Litographs (here)

=====> Being a fan of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander, I could not resist getting the latest Litographs creation.

FYI: Every Litographs t-shirt is created entirely from the text of a classic book, and is hand-pressed to order in Cambridge, MA... The average Litographs t-shirt contains approximately 40,000 words (about the length of a short novel).

Music related:

Duran Duran
tickets for October concert

=====> Being a child of the 80's, looking forward to seeing my favorite band LIVE again.

AND watching:

The Pirates (2014)
"Hae-jeok: Ba-da-ro gan san-jeok" (original title)
Directed by: Seok-hoon Lee
-adventure, pirates, South Korea

A band of pirates and a group of bandits fight to catch a gray whale that has swallowed a royal stamp.

=====> inspired to watch this because today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Pirate WORD of the day:

Avast - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get off!" -TLAP

  9. Forever Charmed and Lasso the Moon both look good. The Danish Girl intrigues me. Ah, those boxes you get have such cute and themed stuff. I have to order one some time. I had never heard of the Litograph stuff and that is cool how they did that t-shirt for Outlander. I'll have to investigate.

    And yes, please, to a chance for your ARC copy of Vengeance Road.
