I love the gothic!

When trouble strikes, head to the library. You will either be able to solve the problem, or simply have something to read as the world crashes down around you.

The Little Book of Hindu Deities

by Sanjay Patel (supervising animator and storyboard artist at Pixar Animation Studios) from Ghee Happy

With dozens of gods and goddesses (and one sacred stone), The Little Book of Hindu Deities is chock-full of monsters, demons, noble warriors, and divine divas. Find out why Ganesha has an elephant’s head (his father cut it off!), why Kali, the Goddess of Time, is known as “The Black One” (she’s a bit goth), and what Hare Krishna really means.

This looks like my dream pub *_*


Rebel Souls (Da Capo Press) is the first book ever written about an incredibly influential artists’ circle that hung out at Pfaff’s saloon in NYC during the the late 1850s and early 1860s. Centered around Walt Whitman, the group also included Artemus Ward, trailblazing stand-up comic, friend of Twain, favorite of Lincoln; Fitz Hugh Ludlow, psychedelic explorer and best-selling author of The Hasheesh Eater; and the brilliant brazen Adah Isaacs Menken, who attained international celebrity for her risqué stage act.Properly considered America’s first Bohemians, this colorful group led a transition from art as a genteel profession to art as a soul-deep calling, centered on honesty and risk-taking. They were the originators, the pioneers who set in motion an American tradition of rebel art that extends all the way to present-day provocateurs like Lena Dunham and Louis CK.
Rebel Souls: Walt Whitman and America’s First Bohemians by Justin Martin, author on Tumblr ( rebel-souls-book).

La caverne aux livres.

La caverne aux livres is a secondhand bookshop in Auvers-sur-Oise (30km to the North of Paris). The entrance of the bookshop is an ancient railway hangar, but from there you’ll quickly find yourself in an old postal train whose cars have been reconverted into giant bookshelves.
