Have I got something for you today. This fine Monday I am going to blow your mind with POETRY. I can see from your possibly skeptical faces that you don’t quite believe me. However, trust me on this. I was recently introduced to an app called “The Love Book,” which contains a collection of love poetry (and some prose) available right at your fingertips, wherever you may be.
I happen to be a lover of poetry, but if you are a bit unsure of whether you like it or even if you are sure you don’t, I recommend still checking this out. Because the best part of the app is that a large selection of the poetry and prose is read aloud for you by some really really great people: Gina Bellman, Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Hiddleston, Damian Lewis, Helen McCrory, and Emma Watson.
In other words, you get to hear awesome literature being read by that really sexy lady from Leverage, Bellatrix Lestrange, Loki, that really awesome guy from Homeland, his wife who is also Narcissa Malfoy, and Hermione Granger. I don’t know how to describe hearing “She Walks in Beauty” from Damian Lewis or “May I Feel Said He” from Tom Hiddleston. All I can say is that after that last one, you will feel like you need a cigarette.
The prose is a great collection too. There are passages from the script of Love Actually and passages from Harry Potter. There are also passages from Wuthering Heights and other doomed love chronicles. It is an amazing and wonderful thing to have at your fingertips, especially when you need some poetry and love in your life.
With that in mind, I have included some Tom Hiddleston things. Enjoy!
