I open up the bookstore I work in early so I can just sit in there and read. Shh, our little secret.
One of these things is not like the others.
Or in some cases, two.

April Book Photo Challenge[Day 3 - Spring]
- Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach
*It isn’t quite spring here yet, but spring makes me think of baseball season and baseball season makes me think of this book*
April Book Photo Challenge: Spring (Apr. 03)
- A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin
“Winter is coming, Jon reflected. And soon, too soon. He wondered if they would ever see a spring.”
Day 5 of Book Photo Challenge - Favourite cover
I can’t really say that this is the favourite one, but I like the stylish simplicity with just the right amount of small detail.
April Book Photo Challenge: Day 6 - Book & Animals
Northern Lights by Philip Pullman
This novel’s world-building and magical aspect is so beautiful. In this world, everyone has an animal companion - a ’Dæmon’ - which portrays the person’s character (and can talk!). There is a special bond between the animal and its owner and being separated is immensely distressful to both.
April Book Photo Challenge Day 5: Favourite Cover
There’s a bit of a bad story behind this one. I bought this last year. I’d been wanting to read Anna Karenina for a while, and when I went to the store, the movie cover looked so pretty that I bought it. Unfortunately, it’s not the best translation, proving the old adage, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”
April 7. Socially awkward character. Piggy from Lord of the Flies. Phenomenal book.

Day 8: Nostalgia
The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
This was the first book I ever bought with my own money. I was probably around four or five at the time. I didn’t actually read it until much later but I used to just carry it around and what not. Makes me pine for the good ol’ days.
