On the Booklovers’ Shelves: Objects In Photo More Numerous Than They Appear

We’ve probably all seen the safety warning on the passenger side mirrors  of  cars. Wikipedia says it’s not just a US phenomenon, that other countries do this too. You know the phrase, “objects in mirror are closer than they appear”.

Halfway Up The Stairs

I’d read. Books taken from my parents’ bookshelves, from the school library, or ones I’d saved up my pocket money to buy.

There are several films that I fell in love with, that I …
