books

my bookworm side had been revived! and i've been so giddy about it for the past days, i miss the high you feel when you read... i stopped reading for almost 6 years because of an incident with an ex-boss before which i allowed to affect me (yeah, loser over here! hehe)... but now that i got the groove back, will definitely not let anything stop me again. 
When reading a book you never know where the journey will take you. (Photo & words from The Book Connections)
