I need my books! I have never liked kindles just because I love having the real book. Books are amazing. I want to live in a library.
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..
It's nice to have both. Nothing beats the smell or the feel of a bookworm me! I'll choose a box any day!!!
Seriously. Get some real books. Besides, the smell of a new book is amazing, and the feeling you get when you add a book is too!
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!!!
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!
People who aren't true book worms, don't understand.
Real book lover for life!!

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! Use Your VOTE...even though i really dislike politics but i feel like voting for women is important and will go out and vote anyway. these women did not start the suffrage movement and fight for womens rights just so i could stay at home on election day.
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).

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

Frank Hurley is such an interesting dude. On my recent trip to Antarctica we traveled to various spots of 'the Boss' via the Sea Spirit with Quark Expeditions, John told us all about how Hurley captured the voyage...Did you know he actually faked some of his photos?

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965) was a British politician, best known for his leadership of the United Kingdom during the Second World War. Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, he served as Prime Minister twice (1940–45 and 1951–55). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winston_Churchill
Was glad to learn a little more of the history of Britain's Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister during one of the most daunting periods of history when Hitler threatened the future of the free world. Tom Brokaw did an amazing job of congealing Britain's history and this historical figure who doggedly stayed the course and emerged a hero, gaining the help of the U.S. to triumph in WWII.

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.

‘On November 14, 1910, Eugene Ely became the first pilot to successfully launch a plane from a stationary ship. The Curtiss pusher airplane, one of the first models in the world to be built in any significant quantity, flew for two miles before Ely landed on a beach. Using the same aircraft, Ely landed on the USS Pennsylvania on January 18, 1911
Using the same aircraft, Ely landed on the USS Pennsylvania on January 18, 1911, while the ship was anchored at the San Francisco waterfront. He had to use a braking system made of ropes and sandbags, but he was able to quickly turn around and take off once again.

Lips That Touch Liquor Must Never Touch Mine - 1910s temperance movement. These ladies aren't really selling it, are they?
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.
““Lips That Touch Liquor Must Never Touch Mine” was the slogan of the Anti-Saloon League of the US temperance movement”
this had me in stitches :D (“Lips That Touch Liquor Must Never Touch Mine” was the slogan of the Anti-Saloon League of the US temperance movement). But I ask you...look at them...honestly, who are they kidding!
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 second atomic bomb nicknamed 'Little Boy' was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan at 11:01 am on August 9, 1945.

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.
"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.
On 14 August, Japan agreed to the Allies' terms of surrender. At midday on the following day, Emperor Hirohito broadcast the news to the Japanese people. It was the first time his voice had been heard on the radio. After the war, Hiroshima was rebuilt as a peace memorial city and the closest surviving building to the epicentre was designated the Hiroshima Peace Memorial.
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.
Isn't it sad to know that our most famous connection to Japan is the terrible bombing of Hiroshima? I'm excited to see the city itself because it's so important historically, but I'm torn between expecting elation at the improvements since World War II, or impending gloom from what the United States has done.
