Death to Stock Photos Photgraphy

This doesn’t come as a surprise: my bookshelves are filled to the brim. And then there’s the odd shelf here and there that keeps on getting occupied. Never mind the stack next to the bed, next to the couch, in the kitchen …

I’m not the only book lover in the world. But to keep me going and to show my current mindset, here’s the books I’m currently reading or will be reading very soon.

    I know you have some history books in your collection. Also that no one lives long enough to read everything

    But have you ever looked at those books?

      Which one in particular are you referring to? Since I studied History in my B.A., I’m pretty sure I had a look or two at some of them 😉
