BOOK LOVER. I rather have the feel of the book & the feel of actually turning the pages than just have a small electronic in my hand.. I'm one of those people that always has her phone & other electronics in her hand but when it comes to reading books I want it to be the actual book not a tablet/ereader..
Dear Kindle, you may have tried to replicate the "look" of an actual page with your version "Kindle Paperwhite", however, you will never replicate the feel of a book in my hands, the smell that comes from the pages, and you will NEVER evoke the memories of the time spent building upon my own imagination and vast worlds that I devoted my life to enjoying. Sincerely, a book nerd.
And this is why I cannot understand why people think I'm crazy for preferring to actually have the books. It makes me feel more connected to the story to hold a real book. BOOKS ARE WAY BETTER!!!
nothing nothing ever will compare to choosing, then touching, opening a real book EVER! the way it smells the feel of a new book - it is an experience, a joy , an event even that a machine just cannot replace!
This is why I prefer the actual book, than it on a kindel. I just love the feel of the pages, and the smell of a new book.
I gave in and got a Kindle because it was free... I've purchased 64 actual books in the year and a half I've had it. 5 ebooks... Real books are just better
So stupid! I love the look, feel, smell of real books but I have thousands and they take up a LOT of room. Hard to read a 1000+ page hardcover book in bed, too. The Kindle goes everywhere, carries my whole library, allows me to get new books whenever I want, is easy to hold and read in the dark or light...plus new releases arrive right around midnight! Love books, but now I love my Kindle even more!
True bookworms value bulky books over the synthetic cold touch of a compact reading device.

Type of Source: Picture from mollymakingmoney.wix.com Date of Origin: 1920's Women's suffrage became a large issue in the 1920's to 30's. Women had to fight for their rights to vote and even to be classified as 'persons' In 1916 Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta gave women the provincial vote, later in 1917 Ontario and BC followed. In May of 1918 all Canadian women were granted the right to vote, except Quebec. Anderson, Doris. "Status of women." The Canadian Encyclopedia. 2/07/06.
Women Rights, Women Vote, 1920, Women S Suffrage, 19Th Amendment, Vote Ladies, Women S Rights, American Suffragette
19th amendment: 3. It was not until 1848 that the movement for women’s rights launched on a national level with a convention in Seneca Falls, New York, organized by abolitionists Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) and Lucretia Mott (1793-1880).

Suffragette protestor An American suffragette with an umbrella stands next to a baby carriage and wears a sign proclaiming 'Women! Use your vote,' circa 1920. Thank to all the women who have fought for our rights. #Feminism #smartgirls
In 1920 the 19th Amendment was passed allowing women to vote. Some states allowed women to vote before that, but in 1920 it became a right.
Passed by Congress on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. Achieving this milestone required a lengthy and difficult struggle; victory took decades of agitation and protest. Beginning in the mid-19th century, several generations of woman suffrage supporters lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to achieve what many Americans considered a radical change of the Constitution.
this woman right here screwed up my whole life.
Dont forget to vote ladies

These are Frank Hurley’s famous early colour photographs of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s ill-fated ‘Endurance’ voyage, as part of the British Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1914-1917. Hurley was the official photographer on the expedition. Early in 1915, their ship ‘Endurance’ became inexorably trapped in the Antarctic ice. Hurley managed to salvage the photographic plates by diving into mushy ice-water inside the sinking ship in October 1915. - State Library of New South Wales

Yousuf Karsh, Winston Churchill, 1941, 1982 Silver Gelatin Print, Edition 9/100, Signed (l.l.) 24 x 20 inches
Winston Churchill The Right Honourable Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, KG, OM, CH, FRS (November 30, 1874 - January 24, 1965) was a British politician, best known as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during World War II. At various times an author, soldier, journalist, legislator and painter, Churchill is generally regarded as one of the most important leaders in British and world history.
Yousuf Karsh's 1941 portrait of a scowling Winston Churchill -- reportedly reacting to Karsh snatching Churchill's cigar -- graced the cover of Life magazine and cemented the British prime minister's reputation as a "roaring lion." "By the time I got back to my camera, he looked so belligerent he could have devoured me," Karsh recalled. "It was at that instant that I took the photograph." The Bank of England announced in 2013 that the famous portrait would be featured on the £5 note.
Winston Churchill was the British Prime Minister during World War II. He was widely credited with being one of the strategic masterminds that made the Allied victory possible. Churchill was also a prolific writer and won the Nobel Prize for Literature.This shot was snapped in the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, Canada after the photographer had annoyed Churchill by taking away his cigar. Widely considered one of the most famous portrait photos ever taken. Date: 1941. Photographer: Yousuf Karsh.

Lips that touch liquor shall not touch ours ~ Without female support, such as that of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, Prohibition could never have been passed.
““Lips That Touch Liquor Must Never Touch Mine” was the slogan of the Anti-Saloon League of the US temperance movement. Tip: don't kiss their lips. They don't look that appealing anyway.
You go girls! More women and men today need to set this standard. Alcohol has been a real curse in our society. Lots of adultery, teen pregnancy, child and spouse abuse, car accidents, divorce, poverty, depression, suicide and deaths have been caused by it. (““Lips That Touch Liquor Must Never Touch Mine” was the slogan of the Anti-Saloon League of the US temperance movement”)

The "Lost Generation" became disillusioned after their traumatic experiences that they endured during World War I. The group of writers who moved to Paris believed that America was intolerant, materialistic, and unspiritual. They helped to establish many of the styles and themes that are still used in literature today. Origin Stein quoted her car mechanic, You are all a "génération perdue." Stein told Hemingway, "That is what you are. That's what you all are ... all of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation." The Sun Also Rises "Wherein the 'lost generation' that followed the War goes to the devil with a smile on the lip but with despair in its heart." The idiosyncrasies of "Lost Generation" authors abandonment of materialism prevalent in America idealism philosophical musings alcoholism extramarital affairs lived in Paris created a mold for many future writers Prominent Authors The term embraces Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Dos Passos, E.E. Cummings, Archibald MacLeish, Hart Crane, and many other writers who made Paris the center of their literary activities in the 1920s. After the 1920s In the 1930s, as these writers turned in different directions, their works lost the distinctive stamp of the postwar period. The last representative works of the era were Fitzgerald’s Tender Is the Night (1934) and Dos Passos’ The Big Money (1936). Works Cited Fitch, Noel Riley.

"The bombers crossed the sky and crossed the sky over the house, gasping, murmuring, whistling like an immense, invisible fan, circling in emptiness." pg - 81 Influenced from the 1945 World War II Bombing on Hiroshina and Nagasaki.
9.3 In August 6, 1945 during the Second World War, There were atomic bombs dropped on the Japanese cities by the United States. The atomic bomb was dropped in Hiroshima and the explosion had wiped out 90 percent of the city, killed and wounded many people. Three days later another atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, killing an estimated of 40,000 people.
The second atomic bomb nicknamed 'Little Boy' was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan at 11:01 am on August 9, 1945.am I the only one thinking of that one scene from Mulan?
On august 10, 1945, the day after the bombing of Nagasaki, Yosuke Yamahata began to photograph the devatation. His companions on the journey were a painter, Eiji Yamada, and a writer, Jun Higashi.
August 9, 1945 the atomic bomb "Fat Man" was dropped on Ngasaki, Japan. ( this was an easy decision for President Truman and he made the right call. - Tom)
August 9, 1945 the atomic bomb "Fat Man" was dropped on Ngasaki, Japan. ~ this second bomb is the more controversial of the two bombs. Documents have appeared that show that the USA knew Japan was on the verge of surrender but dropped the bomb anyway to scare the USSR into thinking that they had a lot more bombs, which they didn't. By the end of the war it was clear to the US and Great Britain that after the war the new threat was the USSR.
On August 9, 1945, American forces dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. In this image, a torii appears to be the only structure left standing. The bomb was dropped at 11:02 am, local time, and it exploded about 1,625 ft (500m) above the ground. The immediate explosion killed 40,000 to 75,000 people. However, by the end of 1945 the death toll in Nagasaki may have been as high as 80,000. [click on this image to find a short video and analysis of the ethics of war and war making]
