Hello Astorians, friends, and readers everywhere!
After many months of searching, the Astoria Bookshop is thrilled to announce that we finally have the perfect location for our store! We have signed a lease and, while there’s much to do before we can open our doors, we expect to have our Grand Opening sometime in mid-August. We are bursting with excitement to be moving forward at last.
Later this summer, the Astoria Bookshop will be opening its doors at 31-27 31st Street, a half block from the Broadway N/Q stop and right next door to our friends at Petals & Roots. We’ll keep you updated on our progress by periodically posting photos on our website as we knock down walls, paint others, install bookshelves, and unpack box after box of books.
While you’re keeping an eye on astoriabookshop.com for updates, you may notice some other exciting changes. For one, we will be launching e-commerce soon! You’ll be able to purchase print as well as ebooks directly from our website. We are a general bookstore, and the books you choose will help us decide how to stock our shelves with the things you really want to read.
As the Astoria Bookshop gets closer to opening, we’ll start posting events to the calendar on our website. Our goal is to host events for every kind of reader out there — book clubs, writers’ groups, author signings, children’s story hours, tastings of sample recipes from cookbooks, even table readings. To us, events are one of the most important aspects of our business — we’re designing the Astoria Bookshop to be a space for the community to gather and interact.
So, while you wait for our doors to open, we’ll be hard at work putting our store together. We want the Astoria Bookshop to look and feel like Astoria — eclectic, engaging, and full of characters. Keep an eye on our website, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, sign up for our newsletter, and you’ll be among the first to know all the goings on at your new neighborhood bookstore.

So today Angelina Jolie had double mastectomy, which is the removal of one’s breasts, to prevent Breast cancer. So instead of praising Angelina on her bravery, men on Twitter decided to ridicule her, even calling her stupid for removing her breasts. For those of you on Tumblr that are attacking Feminists about being delusional about sexism against women and misogyny here’s your fucking proof that sexism and misogyny exists.
This is distressing and awful to see this..
All of them can fuck the fuck off.
I want to stab all of them in the eye sockets
A mother has a procedure (immediately followed by starting the process of reconstructive implant surgery, btw) to reduce her risk of breast cancer by over 80% of and is what some
menpeople have to say about it? Color me not surprised.
Because obviously, a woman’s only job is to be sexually attractive to random ass dudes. Right.
Sickening. Reminds me of some of the stories I’ve read of men leaving their wives when the women had their breasts removed, even some telling their wives that they don’t see them as women anymore. Anyway, love how many men now are mindlessly focusing on how important her tits are over the rest of her.
What the actual fuck people? So is it, “Oh, man, she has cancer (a defective gene made her chances of developing breast cancer very high) but at least she’ll die with a banging rack”? Hell, even if she decided to do it for the hell of it, it’s NO ONE’S business but her own. I’m SO sure that Angelina Jolie is reading that garbage and thinking, “Ohhh no, now I’ve ruined my chance for sexy time with a small minded asshole!”
ONE FINAL EPISODE TO GO. REBLOG if you’re going to miss The Office!
This is 19 year old Marie Fowler. Her cancer just returned, and has been declared terminal. She’s already in Hospice Care. Her final wish is to meet Kellin Quinn from Sleeping With Sirens. Please, make it happen. Spread the word. This girl deserves it.
The small amount of notes on this post worries me.
SIGNAL BOOST. LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
please followers, please.
