There’s been a spate of bookish emoji posts over the last few weeks. Slate covered some great first lines of classic novels. BuzzFeed gave a fun run-down of the book emoji world.
We thought we’d jump in on the action with our own Book Riot spin, of course. Since the Apple Watch will be showing off its own condensed (animated!) versions of emoji, so too could we condense.
So too could we make emoji stronger through simplification.
So too could we make sense of long-winded classics in four emoji or fewer. (Okay, yeah, we’re totally the only ones doing such a ridiculous thing, natch.)
