233.Wishes to fix her camera


One thing I particularly like about the Christmas holidays is that I get chance to read a lot more. I've always been a "bookworm" of sorts,constantly visiting the library when I was younger. Unfortunatley,I don't get as much time or don't always put enough effort into reading like I used to. I would finish books in a couple of days,but now that is incredibly rare. At Christmas,I get more reading material and time, which is a wonderful combination. I'm currently reading Jude the Obscure,The Catcher in the Rye and The Virgin Suicides...all which I'm enjoying imensely. To kill a mockingbird and Jane Eyre are my next books to eat through.

The final book on the right is Postsecret,given to me by Charlotte as a christmas present. It is a collection of postcards that hundreds of individuals sent to this one guy in America.Each postcard holds a secret,often presented creatively. It was this random project this guy started,but it became a much bigger thing,and only a select few of the postcards have been compiled into the book. The secrets are funny,interesting and alot of them are quite touching or sad.I've already read them all,but will constantly look back through this really beautiful book. Plus,I think the project is still running,so I may send my own postcard,with a secret I want to share.

I'm going on a short trip with the family for two days tommorow,and hope to take some photos. Unfortunatley,my camera is having a malfunction(you can see the dodgy lines on the photo above),which is kind of driving me crazy....
