American Gods Trailer

American Gods Trailer. Definitely excited to see this, can’t wait to see more of Mr. Wednesday by Ian McShane and I also really want to see Mr. Nancy by Orlando Jones. Great casting for this show. I can’t believe HBO passed on this.

Bookriot: World’s Oldest Library

tumblr_oaka9hkTE61r2j1gfo4_540

Bookriot recently ran an article about Khizanat al Qarawiyyin in Fes, Morocco. This is (as the title suggests) the oldest library in existence. The article itself is filled with beautiful pictures and interesting facts about the library.

One fact I found amazing: a woman founded this particular literary haven. Her name was Fatima al Fihria. She created the library in the 9th century. The 9th century! Pretty radical for a woman to do. Such knowledge has definitely inspired me as a bibliophile and also as a woman.

If you would like to learn more about Khizanat al Qarawiyyin or Fatima al Fihria then please click the link below. The article was lovely.
