Guest promo My# Bookshelf

I think I told you several times that I suffer of Bibliomania.
Yes, yes the hobby that was considered in the 1800s as an illness in Europe.  I love to read and I also collect books of fiction. You can find books in Romanian, English and German on the shelves.

Here is a photo I took after I received a gift of BOOKS from a former student. She knew my passion and brought them to me from England, where she was a college student at that time. There are some dictionaries on the table and the photo of my older daughter can be seen on the shelf on a small wooden box.



If you are curious to see what is on my other bookshelves, then, please visit here:

See you there!

  5. How funny that bibliomania was once considered an illness, though I suspect my husband would have agreed with that diagnosis. I have a chronic case, myself, only now I collect e-books. I ran out of room for the print variety years ago!

    What a lovely and thoughtful gift from your student.

    1. I also now collect ebooks. There are so many places with free ebooks. Though, these aren't so well crafted.

      I think we've become authors as we love to read.
