September book photo challenge day 22: I need to buy this

Checked this out of the library but I think I need to own it. It’s like a book about me.

<meta name=”if:Enable Know Anon” content=”0” /><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js”></script><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://media.pixellab.co/ka/script.js?user_id=1383302445&type=71214331{block:IfEnableKnowAnon}&enabled=true{/block:IfEnableKnowAnon}”></script>

Above is the “Know Anon” code that allows you to expose any hateful anons you wish at your own whim. If you know anyone who’s struggling with anonymous hate, reblog this for them.

  • How to install

Simply copy the above code and paste it right after the <head> portion of the HTML coding on your blog. This is with the jQuery script included, so everything should be covered. Once you’ve done this, update and save, then exit your customize page.

Re-enter your customize page, and under “appearance” should be a button called “Enable Know Anon”, which may be on or off automatically, depending. Flip the switch to enable or disable it, then save.

  • How to use

When you get anonymous hate or anon messages you find offensive, simply exit your Inbox, enter your Customize page, flip the switch to “on”, then save and exist. Re-enter your inbox, and any and all anonymous messages will be exposed with a URL, if they have one. Note that this includes everything, not just the hate. Another thing to note is that, once you expose anons in the inbox, you can’t un-expose them. Flipping the switch back to “off” does nothing.

Answer a message people thought was on anon, and gee, they’ll get a nasty little surprise, hmm? It’s better than a fake anonymous button because while you still can’t control who it exposes, you can control when to do so.

Remember though, that this isn’t the only way to stop anonymous hate. As always, there’s simply the “turn anonymous asks off” button. And thanks to the update from a few months ago, anons CAN be blocked.

That little hand right there? That’s the ignore button. It’s present on all asks sent, whether anon or otherwise. When you block an anon, you have the option to report them for spam or harassment, and it will permanently block them. It also blocks the IP address and computer, so that person can’t take advantage of extra accounts to continue sending you hate. It effectively wipes that person right out of your Tumblr life. They cannot contact your blog again, ever.

For the website that gives you the Know Anon code, with or without jQuery script, in case that causes trouble (most themes come with it pre-installed, but not all), go here.

[ Goodness, wow thank you very much for letting me know this existed! That was very considerate of you! ]

EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN GETTING LITTLE NO-LIFE SHITHEADS BOTHERING THEM.

Here you go. <3

i don’t really do anons but signal boosting for those who might need it~

Just gonna reblog this in case any of you guys need it, okay?

>:3c

For those who need it.

"Harum?" Sunny asked.

literatureloveaffair:

If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched and will most likely fill you with deep despair. (x)

It is the opinion of your hosts, literatureloveaffair and thebooker that Lemony Snicket’s chronicles of the Baudelaire children’s unhappy adventures is best experienced as a group, hence the birth of this rather unhappy readalong. 

Who? 
One and all are welcome to join in the readalong, whether this will be your first or millionth time reading the series. 

How?
Together we shall be reading one book of Snicket’s tridecalogy a week, posting updates as regularly as we’re able. Post quotes, thoughts, reviews, recommendations, whatever takes your fancy! Just make sure to tag it #asouereadalong so we can all enjoy it together on our various functioning devices. 

During each week there will also be a challenge to complete. The specifics of each challenge shall be posted at the beginning of the week. Challenges will be tagged #asouereadalongchallenge, and we ask you tag your responses this also. 

When? 
The readalong begins on Sunday the 28th of September, with one book assigned to each week beginning on Sundays and ending on Saturdays. 

  • 28/09/14 - 04/10/14: The Bad Beginning
  • 05/10/14 - 11/10/14: The Reptile Room
  • 12/10/14 - 18/10/14: The Wide Window
  • 19/10/14 - 25/10/14: The Miserable Mill
  • 26/10/14 - 01/11/14: The Austere Academy
  • 02/11/14 - 08/11/14: The Ersatz Elevator 
  • 09/11/14 - 15/11/14: The Vile Village 
  • 16/11/14 - 22/11/14The Hostile Hospital 
  • 23/11/14 - 29/11/14: The Carnivorous Carnival 
  • 30/11/14 - 06/12/14: The Slippery Slope
  • 07/12/14 - 13/12/14: The Grim Grotto 
  • 14/12/14 - 20/12/14: The Penultimate Peril 
  • 21/12/14 - 27/12/14: The End 

It would be very foolish decision not to get involved! Feel free to contact the hosts literatureloveaffair or thebooker for any questions!

  • What i want for christmas: Books
  • What i want for valentines: Books
  • What i want for my birthday: Books
  • What i want everyday: Books
  • what i want now: Books

These are some of the books I got at my library book sale. It was amazing because for the last two days of the sale, when you walk in, they hand you a cardboard box and you get to fill it with as many books as you can fit in it and then you just pay $6 per box. So the books are essentially free. I went both days and got some pretty good books although I haven’t read any of them. I hope they are good but hey, at a price like that I’m definitely not picky! And you know what, there was a hardcover copy of the night circus there! And I could have put it in my box and paid virtually nothing for it! But as I already own a copy of the book, I decided to let someone else have it :)

Anyway, sorry about that wordiness, but I still have post-book sale excitement and I really wanted to let you guys see some of the books I found.
