Shoud I buy this, /lit/?
Type the current line you're on in the book you've been reading most recently and then guess and critique their book.
"Mr. and Mrs. Antolini had this very swanky apartment over on Sutton Place, with two steps that you go down to get in the living room, and a bar and all."
I'm actually re-reading it at the moment because I remember reading it back in the day.
Keep in mind that I was never some edgelord who agreed with Caulfield, I always knew he was a faggot.

Whats the point of the dust jacket?
The kind of cloth binding used on many books before the 1940s was textured, not smooth ,and during shipping dust would get in it and cling to it making books rapidly look dirty and worn even when they were not. A lot of booksellers discarded dust jackets before selling the book, regardless of the condition.
Stupid question for wise anons.
Am I the only one that murmurs/whispers when thinking alone? I mean, when I'm thinking alone I articulate the words in my mouth and kinda whisper to myself, or talk (low) like if I was talking to somebody.
This is not b8. I think what I do is completely normal, etc, but I would like to hear it from other anons to be sure. And I know this board is full of people that at least think once in a while, that's why I'm not asking in /b/.
Seeking social validation? Do what works, fuck what anyone else does or think m8
You're right, and I know this works for me and that's all I should need. But still, here I am, so I guess I need social validation.
The problem is, after my experience in buddhism and tantra, I feel uncomfortable when I realise that Im hearing my voice inside my head (which is normal discursive internal thinking, everyone does it, blah blah).
I've told myself so many times that thinking is bad, etc. (Im simplifying it a lot) and Im so unidentified with my own thought, that I almost NEED to whisper to be able to think.
I guess this is an extremely personal experience and anyone can relate. But I wanted to let it out.
Sometimes when I'm thinking I drift between words and moving my lips, and just thinking. The deeper I am in my head the less I noticed whether I'm speaking or thinking. I try to only do that when I'm not near people though
Anyway it seems that this isn't actually about speaking but rather you trying to avoid thinking. If you want to speak, speak, but you should probably try to destroy such a weakness in yourself and get over the insecurity / inability
Does anybody know the source of this? I've tried looking for words like frogs, fairytale, etc. but I found nothing...
“Boys throw stones at frogs for fun, but the frogs don't die for 'fun,' but in sober earnest.”
―Bion of Borysthenes
Could be a picture of the reverse of this, the frogs getting revenge?

I wrote all night. What do you guys think of my opening?
It began like a fever dream. Objects would seemingly move on their own and appear in the oddest of locations. My first discovery was the television remote deposited unceremoniously into the kitchen toaster. On more than one occasion I found assorted fruit tumbling about in the washing machine, bed sheets hung from the ceiling fan, and pillows in the refrigerator. It continued slowly, new objects found suspiciously out of place, and then with unnerving frequency. Even my own school lunch wasn’t secure, and imagine...
