Monday's Inspiration: Books

Im glad to finally be able to post again! If feels like a long time has gone by, but its only because I have been very busy with many things. But lets leave that all aside for now and immerse ourselves in this week's inspiration: books.
Books are very important to me, I'm a Literature major in the University of Puerto Rico. I find comfort and entertainment in book. You can find anything in a book; love, dreams, hope, anything. Now let's look at pretty pictures!
I love the smell of old books, it smells like history.
A book can let your dreams soar into the place where anything is possible.
Sometimes I feel like Matilda, I can just vanish behind a book.

I will dream I own a gypsy caravan and roam the world collecting rare and magical books.

I love books. They are so reliable, you can always count on them to spill their knowledge.

They are just there waiting for you. "Come pick me up" they say. Go ahead. Do it. You won't regret it.

I promise you that the truth and beauty you find in them will accompany you through life.
