Just a quick stop for bubble tea after shopping for books at the annual children’s hospital book sales. Piles and piles of books, all at incredible prices. What I found surprising is that the books are all in such great condition.
My very first moleskine.
One of the best parts of the social media ban was that I found myself with a lot more time to read… I’m finally catching up on books that have been sitting on my list for far too long.
After recently reading a post by the talented Eric Kim about improving your photography through buying books rather than lenses, I found some books at Chapters and browsed. There are so many different books out there, it’s hard to weed through them all, but I can definitely see the direction that I want to head in and I’m slowly finding the type of photography that I want to do myself. It’s definitely very inspirational.
Late Tuesday night I headed out to Chapters after being cooped up all day and found these really gorgeous reprints of Dicken’s works released in honour of his 200th birthday. I’ve had a thing for this series for a really long time and I’m so glad I got to add some to my collection, particularly since it’s Dickens. Oat mentioned that her favourite book was Great Expectations so I’m willing to give it a second chance (I have to admit I’ve had it on my bookshelf for years and still haven’t read it – although I tend to have more books to be read on my shelf, than I have read).
