I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless

and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.

I was shocked when I heard on the news last night that Robin Williams had committed suicide. He was only 10 year older than me; so young! I was a young teenager when I watched “Mork and Mindy,” and have seen most of his movies since. Searching on IMDB this morning for pieces of his life, I found this:
“When Williams auditioned for the role of Mork from Ork on Happy Days (1974), producer Garry Marshall told him to sit down. Williams immediately sat on his head on the chair. Marshall hired him, saying that he was the only alien who auditioned.”
But I would dare to say that Robin Williams was not an alien. He was perhaps the purest example of creativity at work and summed up the human condition in so many ways. Those who are most inspired are often the most anxious and depressed. They are truly alive.

Since my birthday is coming up, I decided I wanted to share the love and host a giveaway for my followers! These are all books that I love for one reason or another - most of them I’ve given five stars or I consider to be a favorite of mine. Hopefully most people see a book they’d be interested in winning/reading. :D

Need to know info:

  • As this is a giveaway for my followers, you must be following me. I will check before I contact the winner.
  • One winner will receive one book from those shown above. If the book shown above is part of a series, you may select another book in that series. 
  • The book may not exceed $20 (US dollars).
  • Books will be shipped internationally from the Book Depository. Check here if they ship to your country. If the winner resides in the US, the book will likely be shipped from Amazon. (I have free two-day shipping!)
  • You do not need to reblog this post to enter. However, reblogging this post can earn you extra entries if you submit the reblog link to the appropriate option in the Rafflecopter widget.

  • You must be 18 or older or have parental/guardian permission to enter. Basically, if you’re under 18, I don’t want your parents thinking some creeper is sending you stuff. That could get weird.
