corner view ≈ time for myself

·
after recent turmoils and good advice from a.o. all of you out here in cyberspace, i have been taking time for myself a-plenty, up to the point i am near guilty of it. 
·
in a considered attempt to allow myself back to freedom of the mind (!), and time, i dove back into books. 
·
i am currently reading bruno's dream. i found it, just last week, at the second hand bookshop. 
·


·
i felt hideously happy to unearth this-here-stack of oldies from just one bookshelf space.

  1. Good for you Nadine! And how lucky to live in a country where you can find (in second hand stores!) books in their original language (of course, that's handy when the original language is English, if it were a book in, say, Japanese, it would definitely not be an advantage :)) (gosh, I'm so funny in the morning!)

  6. I also enjoy reading books from the past. Especially those which I read as a teenager. It is exciting to see the books that I read and understand different today than in the past.
