When I have to stop buying books, (or when I set a goal for myself to stop buying books), I tend to feel like I neeeeed to. And that there are books waiting out there that are AMAZING and want to be read. Yes, this is crazy… I am aware. So, I go on good reads and see recomendations and add to my “to-read” list. Then I go on instagram and see other people’s books I think would be interesting. Then I come on here & all I follow is knitters, crafters and mainly READERS! I’m bombarded with literature which I wish to read!!! I love it so much!, but my wallet does not.
So my brain goes CRAZY with want of these simple little books (all this while I am still reading my stack of books vigoursly), and if I’m near a bookstore (in the mall I work beside, in the mall I play magic in..etc) then I go in & I see them & I want them & I say NO! But then, if there’s an amazing book I’ve never seen before I HAVE TO HAVE IT! & if I’ve already bought 1 why not more…
I am so lame :(

I, Nicole, am a book addict.
Library books! Talking to a friend has made me notice how a lot of my beliefs really are Buddhist, so I want to delve in deeper & get more insight :) #books #reading #love #booklove #bibliophile #buddha #buddhism #meditation #mindfulness #hinduism #religion #insight

Does NOT mean I’m a hipster! It just means I fucking like those fucking things!
Sitting in bed with a stunning book on the chilliest day of the summer :)
My afternoon is looking pretty and colourful :)
My stack of To-Read books is at least half my height & I’m reading a book I bought a few days ago & have a library book to do next…
The life of a bibliophile….
With the previous rose painting, I did these as a trilogy of my Grandmother’s passion as a gift to her.
There’s nothing quite like reading at the library. The quiet hum of the traffic outside. The rustle of pages being turned. The random giggle or gasp from the readers. The smell of old, but not mouldy paper. The feeling of cluttered openness while surrounded with books that lead to so many adventures. The cozy seats, hidden throughout so one can disappear completely for a time.
I love it
My quiet Friday in with my love & We had plans but we bailed for he has a headache & I am super dizzy :(. I’m entirely happy with these activities though :).
Best description of “urban fantasy” I’ve seen yet. This is my favourite genre to read!
