That’s right, we got the blogging wunderkind, indie teen queen and ed-in-chief of Rookie mag to tell us all about her literary life. Enjoy!

Do you read paperbacks or Kindle?

Paperbacks, though I kind of want a kindle because I would probably read more and then I wouldn’t have to stress about ugly covers (so petty, I know).

How do you organise your books?

One of my book cases just organizes them by size, but I have them scattered throughout the rest of my room by theme/color. On the shelf next to my bed I have the books that have basically taught me how to live and shaped my point of view more than any other, including everything from Rodarte’s book with Catherine Opie and Alec Soth to zines from Rookie readers to The Westing Game.

What’s the book you reread more than any other?

The Virgin Suicides.

What’s the book you own but have never read?

The Great Gatsby.

What’s on your nightstand?

Louise Bourgeois’s Drawings and Observations and a bunch of birthday candy and probably some empty glasses.

This isn't a picture of Tavi's books, but if you look very closely on the left side, what do you see? Pamflets!

What’s in your handbag?

Crumbs, loose change, a CTA card, contact solution, gum, hand sanitizer, hair stuff, pads, headphones, sometimes crystals.

What’s the book you foist on people?

Ghost World. I have two copies: the special edition, for myself, and a paperback for lending out.

Name the four books that mean the world to you:

This is so hard! I mean, duh. Probably The Virgin Suicides, Ghost World, Building Stories, and Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Wonder.

"Vogue loves...Indie mags: Hogarthian graphics and modern feminism from Pamflet"

"It makes me feel less despair to know that somewhere deep inside the Jordanization of modern Britain there are still a few angry feminists out there." Zadie Smith

"Pamflet is the photocopy-quality soapbox for two young, sarky post-feminists from London who want women’s rights and the right to wear pretty things, and want it, like, yesterday." Sunday Times Style

"They’re funny and honest and write about fashion with feminism so I’m obviously all over it." Tavi
