I was fascinated by strangers, wanted to know what food they ate and what dishes they ate it from, what movies they watched and what music they listened to, wanted to look under their beds and in their secret drawers and night tables and inside the pockets of their coats.
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Today was a day full of Christmas shopping with my eldest sister. We went to the old book shop and I found this lovely edition in which someone has written their own translation. I love finding books like these.

The book community is just full of tired burned out depressed humans who use books as an escapism from the shitty reality and responsibilities and not to mention the weird sense of superiority towards others

“They know that tragedy is not glamorous. They know it doesn't play out in life as it does on a stage or between the pages of a book. It is neither a punishment meted out nor a lesson conferred. Its horrors are not attributable to one single person. Tragedy is ugly and tangled, stupid and confusing.”
E. Lockhart, We Were Liars (2014).

Hello! Sorry to bother you but I was wondering if you're still doing aesthetics posts? If so, could you do mine? I enjoy languages and reading. I love nature and wild animals, dark colors (black, gray, navy, deep green) unless it's in art. Then, the brighter the colors, the more it catches my eye. I lead an active lifestyle, enjoy rain, old books, cold winters, and learning about art. My ideal Sunday is rainy and spent at an art gallery. My dream is to hike the entire peaks of the Balkans trail.
Heyy! No no it's completely fine !!✨
Well yours is a combination of Classic Cottage core and Dark academia.
