‘Who cares for you?’ said Alice, (she had grown to her full size by this time.) ‘You’re nothing but a pack of cards!’
It’s the most especial day of the year for me! Not that I need any excuse to love books, but today it has much more sense.
Looking back, I think I’ve loved books even before I could read… I remember listening stories on cassettes before going to sleep, going to the library in my school (I think I was the only one who loved being there… or even actually the only one going for that matter …) and borrowing the same book again and again, or how I cried because I spilled water on it. Over the years I’ve visited many libraries, searching for books for my studies, or just because I couldn’t stand not reading that one book. I’ve also bought a lot of paper friends (I even created my own catalogue), flip to e-book, and came back to paper to never leave. The touch of the pages, the sound of certain type of paper, the smell of old books, the worlds they hold, for this and many more reasons today is the happiest of days in my calendar.
Happy Book Day to you all! Have a great day, read a book, or buy one, or even better: gift your favourite one. Meanwhile, here you have a few to look at:
Black and white books in Cuesta de Moyano.
Somewhere in Tokyo there’s a place where you can listen to jazz music, buy books and vinyls, eat gyoza and drink green tea.
Hay un lugar en Tokyo donde puedes escuchar jazz, comprar libros y vinilos, comer gyoza y beber té verde.
To celebrate Book Day here I share one of the first photographs I developed and print myself 🙂 Happy Book Day!
