Hit the books #AtoZChallenge – Peculiar ‘Pen fellows’ – Quirks only a writer can understand

peculiar penfellows

HHit the books

As writers, we have an interesting relationship with books. We spend our life surrounded by them – our own, other people’s – it doesn’t matter. Reading is a passion we share for various reasons; for the connection, for pleasure, to learn. We collect them, covet them, and often use them to benefit our own writing.

I love to hit the books, often I spend too much time losing myself in other worlds, and as a writer, I could probably talk for days about everything I love about them. But I’ll save you from the essay on how books enrich our lives – you likely already know the power of the written word!

Instead I’ll share an image from the aMAZEme book maze, which was part of the London 2012 Festival. A maze I would happily get lost in. I’d probably stay there for a good long while, providing someone dropped in a few care packages (including a notepad and pen for when I get antsy and want to add to the collection!)

Oh, I love that image!!
And I’ll say I’m a reader, a writer and a bookseller. I must be doomed!
Sorry I didnt’ visit during the challenge. It was very hard for me this year, due to RL (epseically work schedules), but I0m trying to catch up now 🙂

    I completely understand, and thanks so much for stopping by – I know what it’s like to fight for a little down time! I wouldn’t say doomed though…I’m sure you’re having the time of your life (when you find time to reflect on all the awesome!)

I'd love to hear from you.
