This is pretty much exactly the wrong way to pull a book off the shelf. 
I bet that guy’s library is just full of books with torn headcaps.
The RIGHT way is to push the surrounding books back, then grasp the book you want by the MIDDLE OF THE SPINE. Then you can pull it off the shelf.

Mister Rogers genuinely cared about everyone and that’s why he will forever be the best. All of my feels.

True fact: He was considered to be one of the hardest people to interview, because he would turn it around and ask questions about the interviewer with genuine interest. Asking about their children and spouses, their dreams of the future, etc.

can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda

and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind

and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move

Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…
