...said the Cat to Alice.

Books, the Universe and Everything

(The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy, Douglas Adams. Don't panic and don't forget your towel)


So it's no big secret the Cat has a thing for books.
Books about anything, really.

Books about Maths and Parrots
See, the Cat is trying to understand Math, as she is trying to understad her parrots. So far, the Cat is failing at both subjects.
(The Parrot's Theorem, Denis Guedj. Parrot earrings, Accessorize. Mother and baby parrots, hiding. Father parrot, wondering what the hell is the Cat doing with that camera)

Books about Chess
Chess is the Cat's favorite game. Although she's a bit of a terrible player.
(Katherine Neville, Eight. The Flanders Panel, Arturo Perez-Reverte. Chess board, a gift)

Books about the Far Eastern Culture
The language, the martial arts, the food... And Haruki is a league of its own)
(Nicole Mones, The Last Chinese Chef. Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. Tony Parsons, My Favorite Wife. Miso bag, momiji box and Accessorize floral bangle, all gifts)

Books about Vampires
The Cat had a thing about Vampires, even before they started to sparkle. Well, as Damon from The Vampire Diaries would put it, "that Stephenie chick has got it all wrong. In the real world, we vampires burst in flames in front of the sun". Still, it was a fun read, especially as far as a certain teenage werewoolf was concerned.
(Charlaine Harris, Dead until Dark, Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead. Skull necklace, no idea. Stephanie Meyer, Twilight. Scary notebook, a gift. Bathroom mat from Bed & Bath, a gift)

Books about a girl named Alice, who sometimes believes in six impossible things before breakfast
(Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass. Top and headband, Stradivarious. Bangle from Accessorize, a gift)

Books, well, about Cats.
In fact, the Cat went to a book sale today, to support the organization that helps stray cats, www.ninelivesgreece.com
(William Burroughs, The Cat Inside. Ευγένιος Τριβιζάς, Η τελευταία μαύρη γάτα. Cats, ,a scrapbook. Black and white photos of cats, from an old notebook of mine. Photo frames, Ikea. Reading glasses case, Octopus. Kitty themed dress, a gift. Small decorative cats, all gifts)

Books about self-destruction and bad habits (and a mean sense of humour)
Told you there was a dark side to that, as well. And it wasn't Vampires.
(Nick Cave, The Death of Bunny Munro. David Sedaris, When you are engulfed in flames. Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides. Havana Club and Jose Cuervo Especial, old friends. Gaulloise red, an acquaintance)

Books about her favorite place in the world.
London. A city that, by definition, is magic(J.K.Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Ben Elton, Inconceicable, Blind Faith, This Other Eden. WallPaper City Guide, London. The Magical Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and The Beatles, gifts. London snow-globe, a souvenir)

  2. Από τα βιβλία με τους βρυκόλακες φωτοσόπιασε έξω το Twilight γιατί είναι σα να βάζεις σε μια φωτογραφία με σκακιστές τον Μπόμπι Φίσερ, τον Καρπόφ, τον Κασπάροφ και εμένα.
    Ωραία ιδέα για ποστ παρεπιπτόντως.
