A Love Affair with Books…

March 2nd, 2007 · 3 Comments

Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?                 ~ Henry Ward Beecher For a self-confessed book addict like myself, my life is a constant love affair with books. Going into a book shop, for me, is like being a child in a lolly shop… total temptation! And [...]
