Confessions of a Bibliophile

As someone who has loved books for as long as I can remember, I must confess I've always held a soft spot in my heart for tiny books.
Throughout the years I have accumulated quite a collection.

Some like the little Harry Potter one on the lower right I've had since childhood, others are newer like the handmade zine from my sister Jessica.

As testament to my love of books,as a gift one year my brother gave me a wooden case in the shape of a book.
Luckily, they all fit in it perfectly.

He even put my name on the top of it.

Some of them are handmade, some I bought, others were gifts.
Some titles include: The Book Lovers Book, Dogs, The Monster That Ate Stars, Wee Little Garden Gnome, Believe in Yourself, and Leonardo Tells a Story...

Two of my favorites are The Monster That Ate Stars by Souther Salazar, and Leonardo Tells a Story by my sister Jessica.
Both zines, both lovely.

Have any suggestions for good reads?

When you enter the magical land of books you just change your life and yourself in one magical read. I love and adore books. They make me want to travel, try new foods, cook new recipes, explore new places and be a better person. Not bad for pages written on covered with sturdier paper. A book = heaven!
