It's not like I'm a bookworm.
However I like to pretend.
There are times when I don't even touch a book for months.
And than there are times when I can't be stopped.
Most of my books I find at a local bookstore in Kreuzberg
(a neighborhood in Berlin were I used to live for 2 years).
It is a second-hand bookstore
and they donate part of their earnings to a nonprofit organization in the neighborhood.
And so I buy books.
And I keep buying.
I buy more books than I read.
There are probably about 10 books in my shelf I haven't touched yet.
I just like to own them - knowing that I will read them someday
On top of my list are classics:
everything Jane Austen wrote or Charles Dickens,
To Kill a Mockingbird, The Cider House Rules
and of course Harry Potter.
One day I wish to have a library - and to have read most of the books it contains.
PS: Pictured are my parents bookshelves. They already own a library :)
