Nothing... Except my genius.

I am currently reading a few of these books and others I have just bought and am admiring.... ahhh...
Anyway,  I thought I would share these with you and some teasers from a few of them...
Oh, and I had fun taking pictures of the books too!







As I was attracted to this book by its cover, (yes, I know what you are thinking!)
I thought that instead of putting the blurb underneath the picture, as tradition goes, I would let you read it how I saw it. 
To read the blurb, click on the picture above for a larger view. 

And last, but definitely not least...

Nothing Except my genius, the wit and wisdom of Oscar Wilde. 

Reading the chronology at the beginning of the book - which is a collection of quotes - I was surprised to learn about his theatric past, including being imprisoned in gaol for two years - during which he wrote a series of poems and published them after his release under the pseudonym of his cell number: C33,   many of his works being unsuccessful with the public, writing many essays, letters, plays, and short stories. 


Now, down to business, some quotes...


And, of course, his famous last words, uttered while he was on his death bed (literally) at the Hôtel d'Alsace in Paris on November 30th, 1900.

i love this post <3
i'm looking forward to reading Ally Queen, some of those others look great to.
i love how you've taken the pictures surrounded by pretty things. they're really gorgeous!
i've started handing out YA fans unite flyers at work. i was thinking one of us should email/call/contact somehow Freo children's lit centre. because then they could possibly have our flyers and we could tell people about their events. what do you think?
