“To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”

- e.e. cummings (via observando)


For those who haven’t heard, I recently got engaged and am needing to start a wedding fund! As a bookseller, I’m not exactly rollin’ in the dough Scrooge McDuck style. (Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE what I do and pray I never have to do anything else) BUT…if you are looking for certain books, feel free to email me at jessica@oncearoundbookshop.com. I have THOUSANDS of books here in my shop and will make you a great deal! Thanks so much!
