Alan Rickman reads Shakespeare’s Sonnet 130

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks; 
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Molly made this for a post at YALSA’s The Hub — it’s worth checking out, because there are lots of additional titles in the comments! 

These are available — or soon will be — at Lawrence Public Library! 

I spy a backlist favorite (ANNIE ON MY MIND) and a Fall 2013 book we’re excited to share with the world (FREAKBOY)!
