The dining room, with Jane's writing table tucked away in a corner next to the window.


Jane's bedroom (also the room where most of her family said goodbye to her before she died).


A replica of the blue dress and bonnet that Jane is wearing in the portrait sketched of her by her sister Cassandra.

Okay, so this is a game and not book-related, but I just finished it and the story/characters were fascinating in a trainwreck kind of way. Three or four generations of family members, all marching steadily to their doom. Plus alchemy, a raven-headed man, and an immortal dog.

 

I'm tempted to try the Cube Escape games now, but I have chores I really need to do, and The Edge of the Abyss to finish reading.

InspiroBot fun

Today I found out about this thing called InspiroBot. It's an "inspirational image/message" generator. Sort of. The results are often weird. Here's my first book- related one:

 

 

Another favorite, not related to books:

 

 

And this bit of creepy weirdness:

Because...

I noticed that Lillealara is about to read The Master and Margarita. ;)

 

 

This sign can apparently be found at Patriarch Ponds in Moscow.

 

Enjoy the ride that is The Master and Margarita!

Sorry I've Been Missing

I don't know when to quit.

 

 

I hurt myself last weekend and then decided I felt better on Tuesday and made the 45 commute into work in my little car. I attempted to get out of my car and my back let me know what an idiot I truly am. I've been unable to move ever since. I've been laid up or attempting to shuffle around the house. One hip is 2 inches higher than the other and nothing is helping. I broke down and went to the chiropractor this morning and now I can at least sit and ice things without wishing for the grim reaper. Anyway, I'm not as flaky as I may appear to be. I'm just a mess right now. The pain was so bad I couldn't even read! I'll be back when I can focus on basic life tasks again. Have fun while I"m away.
