Have you ever wondered where books come from?

Well then, let me show you, because that’s what I do for a living.

Right now, it’s this time of the year, and the little ones have just freshly hatched:

You’ll notice they’re still blind and naked when they hatch. So I make them little coats to keep them warm during their first winter:

image

See how they happily line up to put them on:

image

See? Better. Now they’re ready to go and explore the world.

And if they make it through the winter and we take good care of them, they will grow up to be strong and wise like their older fellows:

So, in case you were ever wondering, now you know.

brightwaterforarainyday, please confirm? ;;;)))

:D I can indeed!

As you can see, I have my own little clutch of booklings I’m rearing at the moment

Aren’t they sweet? On the right you can see one of the older ones, who’s gotten quite big now. It’s so satisfying watching them grow up :*)

In case you missed it, Entertainment Weekly has your first look at Avengers: Age of Ultron and it’s pretty awesome. 

I went to his tiny little comic shop in my hometown of Sheffield - a small city in northern England - and found this man who… had this comic shop for years and its’ filled with every Marvel comic. I was in there for a while, looking through. He was so excited to show me. I read a bunch of them.

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.
