Bookish Adventures

To reflect on lessons learned, memories lost, and fresh thoughts, that is what the magic of literature is all about. 

Everyone who knows me, knows how much I am madly in love with stories. So, today, on the second Book Lover's Day of the year, here's a quick love letter to literature, in photographs:  

Images 1-9: My little library, along with glimpses of my reading adventures. Books shown:  Footprints in the Mind, by Javan | Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, J.K. Rowling | The Crossroads of Should and Must, by Elle Luna | The Oleander Girl, by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni | Go Set A Watchman, by Harper Lee 

Images 10-12: Paper crafting book covers and fashioning costume props inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, The Jungle Book, and The Book Thief by Mark Zusak

Images 13-22:  Book shop visits around the city,  Matilda on Broadway, and street art inspired by literary characters, and sculptural book art around NYC! 

Images 23-24: My literal fairytale proposal, in Bryant Park Library with Harry Potter, and my fiance asking me to make the "The Unbreakable Vow"! 

Do you have any books that have inspired adventure or joy?
