Book lover

I think anyone who wanted to be in a relationship with me would have to comprehend that my number one expense is books. Not clothes. Not shoes. Not purses. Books. Lots and lots of books. My boyfriend brings me books shopping for my birthday and that is love, man, that is love.

Where the gods are even more flawed than we are and when we chance upon them it never fairs well for us… which rather makes sense. Anyway, I think we do project upon… Continue reading Norse Mythology picture
