I’ve been meaning to write about my local library ever since I started this blog but there are so many books I’d been reading and not reviewing that writing about anything else than book’s reviews was beyond my capacity. But I always state that I do not buy many books at least not physical ones due to my minimalist lifestyle and nomad principles but that doesn’t stop me from reading also physical books a lot. Since I don’t have many people around me who read books and can lend me some, the only place I can get books is a library but I don’t complain.

I’ve been thinking about my blog for a while and I’ve come to the conclusion that this space does not reflect exactly who am I and what I am been thinking about.
