The Coolest Fucking Book I HAVEN’T Read.

Thursday night is the night I usually go to the bookstore. Yesterday, even before I left for work in the morning, I’ve already decided that I’m staying away from Teen Section no matter what. I went straight to Fiction/Literature in search of some Penguin Classics that I’ve slowly started collecting. I only picked up one, in case you wanted to know.

Anyway, I saw this book. It’s got it’s own box. It’s hardcover and it looks like one of those collector’s items. It’s a fairly recent release so I can’t believe I’ve missed it on my many a bookstore jaunts. 
This book. God. I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful and unique and precious it looks! The pictures I’m about to show you couldn’t give it justice. If you’re a true blue book lover, you have got to pick this up! You might not be a reader of the genre but for your sake, you really need to hold this in the palm of your hands. The sight of it is just…I can’t even describe it. Sorry for subpar quality of the pictures. I took these at night using artificial light so they’re meh (technical term for it sucks). 
It comes in its own box. 
This is what it looks like. Wait till I show you the inside!
It has that aged look and the pages are peppered with little notes from a couple of supposed readers. It’s so cool. The best thing about it? It. Smells. Old. 
It also has inserts of postcards from Brazil. There’s more at the bottom.

More postcards from Brazil. 

This newspaper. 

This telegram. 

This compass at the back and of course the library check out log. 
You guys, you really should pick up a copy. If you’re a fan of fantasy/adventures with a twist, you might even like this book. I know I can’t wait to read it. But you really should get it because of how perfect it is. It’s…I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve been gushing about it to everyone who’d listen in my household to the point that I got a simultaneous, “WE KNOW!!”and I just can’t wait to talk about it to anyone. I thought I’d take it to the right people, meaning all of you, of course. 🙂
I can’t wait to talk about this with someone!
