  • Hemingway

    literarystarbucks:

    Hemingway goes up to the counter and orders one espresso. It’s hot. He drinks it in silence. It makes him remember his father’s cabin. He thinks about the woman he loved once. He does not smile. The coffee reminds him of war - short but painful, swallowed down quickly. One could order worse drinks. He leaves Starbucks and walks out into the rain.

  • Borges

    literarystarbucks:

    Jorge Luis Borges goes up to the counter.  He comes to the conclusion that the possible permutations of size, flavor, and strength stretch far beyond what any one man could experience.  He orders every permutation and moves to the back of the room, where he will spend the rest of his days attempting to catalog all the possibilities of the infinite Starbucks.

    A town known as the “town of books”, Hay-on-Wye is located on the Welsh / English border in the United Kingdom and is a bibliophile’s sanctuary.

    #ammoving

    furiously typing email to UK promoters demanding a Hay-on-Wye show at the earliest opportunity 

    I get a lot of my 19th century book collection here. I was there just the other day and stopped for tea and cake at Shepherds coffee shop before making some purchases at Booth’s Books.

    Last time I went to Hay-on-Wye I met Henry Winkler, aka the Fonz. It is a magical place.

    Also once in Hay-on-Wye I was surprised by a promotion wherein I was given a glass of champagne free with every five books purchased and that day was a tipsy day, my friends. I mean what. I am a classy broad. LITERATURE. What.

    PLANNING MY NEXT VACATION
