My dad just said: at your age you’ll probably wanna try a lot of things. Boys, girls, being a girl, being a boy, being punk or goth or spunky. And im okay with that. As long as you don’t come home and tell me youre a republican

Bibliophilicwitch’s 3k Giveaway!
I’ve been running bibliophilicwitch (then witchfulthinking) for over two and a half years. I have gone from solely blogging pagan and witchcraft to admitting that this is a personal blog to being a personal spiritual book blog that reblogs pretty pictures of nature, occult, books, mori kei clothing, and fountain pens - and somehow this hodgepodge has attracted 3000 of you guys. Holy buckets! I can’t let such a momentous number be left to pass unnoticed, so here is a give away!
- must be following me as this is a thank you to my sweet followers
- reblog/like as many times as you wish, but please don’t spam your followers
- no give-away/contest blogs
- open internationally
- after the winner is selected they will receive a message in their ask box; your ask must be open in order to qualify and you must claim their prize within 48 hours.
- open until August 21
The winner will receive a book that they can select from the list of my favorites listed above. When able, I will be giving away a hardcover, though there are a few that are out only available in certain formats. The book will be bought and shipped via Book Depository. While the give away is open internationally, please take a moment to check that your country is eligible for shipping through Book Depository because I would hate to find out at the last minute that I can’t actually get you the book.
And yes, that is the collector’s edition of Fangirl as long as it is available when the time comes or the winner is willing to wait.

If the winner wishes to receive a book other than the first of the series listed, they may request it. Ex. Already have The Name of the Wind, but would love Wise Man’s Fear? DONE!
What unexpected thing have you learned by working at a museum?
"The more time you take with the art, the better.
The first time I saw a work by James Turrell, my eyes totally deceived me. I walked into the room (Acton, at the Indianapolis Museum of Art) and saw a gray rectangle “painting”, but I was baffled and could not figure it out- I got closer and closer until my face was pressed against the wall next to it, trying to figure out what it was. When my friend stuck her arm into the painting and revealed the illusion (a square cut into the wall and lit to look flat), my mind was blown! You got me so good, James.
Also, always offer to take a family photo for the tourists!”
What do you wish you could tell all people about yourself, museums or life?
“Everyone is creative.”
