Date a Girl who Reads

and-time-is-never-planned:

Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes, who has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that…

I read books because I love them, not because I think I should read them.

They will wait for me till the end of my days.” Quote from The Library at Night by Argentinian author Alberto Manguel, pictured in his own library.Learn more about Manguel’s book which is his personal take on his own library and others’ libraries ~

Got new carpet in the office this summer and had to take out all the books and shelves and never got them reshelved properly. But I got used to it. Like recognizing a friend in a crowd by the back of their head. #shelfie #takeashelfie
