The Book Im Reading.
23-Nov-2011

The Book I'm Reading.

I've always been a bookworm. Growing up the only child of book loving parents it was probably inevitable that I would bury myself in books. Visiting friends' houses, the first thing I would do was examine their bookcases and to this day, I can't stop myself doing it when I'm in someone's house.
I've been dipping into this book of short stories by Canadian author Alice Munro for quite some time now. I like her stories of ordinary people, usually women, who often have an extraordinary secret in their past. Her characters are strong, resourceful, often outsiders, and always survivors.

I love books but hate clutter. I'm trying to balance the two by going the Kindle route (which thwarts bookskelf browsers, sadly) but am frustrated by the number of titles that are denied to Australians (and many other parts of the world) by short-sighted publishers and authors who don't seem to get how that will ultimately promote piracy. The glasses are a nice touch in this shot.

Love how you staged this photo on the arm of the chair with your glasses. And love the shadows and the lighting. V
