  1. Wishing every day could be book day. So much warmth and companionship in your book shots. At the moment I am reading two books Beloved, by Toni Morrison and The Fortress of Solitude by Jonathan Lethem.

  2. Reading has been a part of my life, quite seriously, since I was around eight years of age, when I received my first illustrated encyclopedia. I still read, although most of it is now done on my Kobo e-reader. Occasionally I visit my local library, just for a change and to smell the books! Currently I’m reading on my Kobo from the collected works of Rabindranath Tagore — from a visit to Japan in 1916 a lecture he gave; he was certainly very in touch with the people, the heart of the people. I like him.

    I like your collection of photo-books and colourful shelves. If you have nothing else in a room, bookshelves provide plenty of colour.

  3. I love books too, Robert. Always have. To my amazement when my sister gave me a Kindle I loved it too. I get my books on there now. Although one thing is for certain, I would never read a picture book to my grandsons on a Kindle. In that case only a real book will do.

  4. Qualche anno fa, ho avuto la fortuna di festeggiare questa ricorrenza particolare in Catalogna. Nel giorno di San Giorgio (patrono di Barcellona e della Catalogna) Barcellona si riempie di bancarelle di libri e di rose. La tradizione, infatti, vuole che gli uomini regalino alle donne una rosa, che loro poi ricambiano con l’acquisto di un libro. L’atmosfera in città era davvero bella – peccato che non abbia neanche una foto ricordo!
    In questo giorni sto finendo “One day” di David Nicholls. Davvero molto coinvolgente. Ciao Robert!

  5. I am a little ashamed to acknowledge that I didn’t even know it was the World Book Day last week – despite the fact that I love books too. Right now I am ready Age of Extremes by Eric Hobsbawn, a very interesting historical look at last century.

    • No need to be ashamed, me too didn’t know it till middle of the afternoon! That’s why I posted it late in the afternoon with a collection of already taken photos, otherwise I had preferred to make a special shot for the occasion!
      Myself, I’m reading a book from Lilli Gruber about her family in Tyrol starting from just before the first world war till the years of fascism. It’ s part of a trilogy and very interesting to see how the story changed the lives of so many people.
