Where is Vladimir Nabokov now? The third in a week-long series of illustrations by Jason Novak, captioned by Eric Jarosinski.

You may not know Vladimir Nabokov’s texts (Lolita is the most famous), but imagining any author chasing similes with a butterfly net is pretty good.

This is the best thing I have ever seen

BEARS

reblogging again because I cannot fucking contain myself so cute

Just because it’s the third day of school.

. The cursing you see isn’t from me!
I dislike hunting, and if the hikers were hunters I’d say: Cull the herd.

But really this is just about grammar,

Bullets and Ballots

newyorker:

Ferguson is sixty-seven per cent black, but fifty of its fifty-three police officers are white. In Comment, Jelani Cobb reflects on disenfranchisement, disillusionment, and the protests following Michael Brown’s death.

Illustration by Tom Bachtell.

What’s wrong with these numbers? I know, you signed up for AP Lit and I’m asking about current events or government or civics or something, right? But it’s all about reading and thinking. This time it’s not about “literature,” that just means I think you should be well-rounded in what you read and consider.

Seems legit.

Anyone see the problem here?

Summer Reading? Novel?

There’s a timed writing on the first day. I could put it off until next week, but I want to see how you write and start to work on fixing it. I also want to see if you did the reading. So gird your loins in whatever way necessary and bring your favorite pen to class cuz I don’t read pencil.

Food for thought. See, I thought grammar was boring too, until Grammarly came around and livened it up a bit.

A tad on the smart-aleck-y side (no, that term hasn’t made it into the OED yet), but worth a glance or reminder as the summer comes to a close and we all have to put our formal clothes on again, i.e., proper English and grammar.

Yes, today was the first teacher workday. Sigh.

Which is one reason to read books.

One reason to buy them is that it allows you to write all over them - which is what I’ve done in my copy of How to Read Literature Like a Professor. BTW, that book was a help to me this summer when I was in graduate school - and I wish I’d actually had my copy with me for reference purposes.

I can’t wait to start getting to know you in a week or so. Keep cracking on that summer work - for AP Lit and/or whatever other classes you’re working on.
