A Brief History on Deckle Edged/Rough Cut books.
Back in the days when books were made with handmade paper, deckled edges were regarded as an imperfection in the paper and bookmaking process, and all edges were cut cleanly. Around the late 1800s, though, books with rough edges became popular. People appreciated the look and feel of deckled edges, and as a result, the pages of many books were left untrimmed.

I'm curious now, which do you prefer?
Deckled edges/a rough cut? Or clean cut?

Today was a good day.
I found a Visa gift card in my wallet and spent the entire thing on a bunch of books. I may or may not have gotten The Complete Novels (Penguin Classic Deluxe Edition) of Jane Austen. 1,278 pages. Deckled edge. Yes. Online shopping is the best.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Have you seen the trailer for the film adaptation of Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower? (If not, click here.) So everyone, tell us what you think!

I've missed you all so very much!
These last months of school have been insane. You know how it can be with the end of the year, finishing up classes and taking finals and all that jazz. I hope you all did well! Who am I kidding, of course you did! You’re the smartest group of people I know!
