I always have a habit to snoop my friends’ bookshelves when I go visit them.  For there is almost a reflection of who you are simply by what you read.  I give the prime bookshelf real estate to my most favourite books.  Books that have battered-coffee-stained spine usually occupy that space permanently.  Another stack of books are currently sitting beside my bed. Reaching out to them just for a page or two before bed drown out the noise and put me to sleep.  Books that are heavily dog-earred or underlined are not loanable to any.  Please buy your own copy!  I love to read and write, I also love other people who love to read and write.  That space only writers could communicate and find delight in is pure indulgence for any bookish writer.
