What would have happened if I had known how to say the right words rather than the unfortunate ones I had said? What would have happened if I had taken the initiative in time instead of pursuing a reconciliation devoid of substance?

– We Were Surrounded by Palm Trees by Marcos Giralt Torrente

A book is really like a lover. It arranges itself in your life in a way that is beautiful. Even as a kid, my sister, who was the eldest, brought books home for me, and I think I spent more time sniffing and touching them than reading. I just remember the joy of the book; the beauty of the binding. The smelling of the interior. Happy.

I’ve run out of books to read. Any recommendations?

Check here and here to see what kind of books I like. I’m pretty much open to anything right now though.
