The Bookworm's Haven


Mia. 17. Ravenclaw. Avid Reader. Communication + Management Major.


This is my book tumblr blog as well as my personal blog because I found it hard to manage two blogs at the same time. My personal life seems to be tied up with books and reading.

Lovely scientific rendition of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars” in this Girl Scouts PSA for engaging girls in STEM, reminiscent of the wonderful You Are Stardust – the illustrated story of the universe by a female author and illustrator. 

Pair with the history of women’s science education and why bridging the gender gap is essential for saving the future of science.

Top with these illustrated biographies of exceptional women scientists.

This is great! I added a few lines:

"When you see the stars sublime,

You’re really looking back in time.

Dwarves and giants from brown to red,

They’ll still be there when you’re dead.

As we gaze up please take my hand,

Hold on to me now before the entropic heat death of the universe occurs as a result of the very fabric of space and time continuing to expand.”

But I read and read anyways, sometimes so fast that even I was surprised, and sometimes very slowly, as if each sentence or word were something good for my whole body, not just my brain.
Roberto Bolano, 2666 (p. 256)

Formatting on Tumblr blows. So, here’s a cheatsheet. Simply go to reblog this and click on HTML. Then, copy and paste the sections you need. There are links to symbols and generators you can use as well (particularly for header text). “br /” is used for keeping text one line under what was previously written (HEADER #1) while p creates new paragraphs with a clear line between (HEADER #2). If you write too much in the pre (grey background), it will add a scrollbar. Here’s a link to all the code used because it’s gonna look weird reblogged.
