The Bouquinistes of Paris, France, are booksellers of used and antiquarian books who ply their trade along the banks of the Seine, which would not be the same without the established bouquinistes. The booksellers and their green painted boxes have truly become one of the many iconic symbols of Paris. It was once said that the Seine is the only river in the world that runs between two bookshelves. Always in the open air during any weather “by the wind, the rain, the frost, the snow, the fog, and the great sun, that they end by looking much like the old statues of cathedrals”.

I legit envy anyone who can casually read a book without feeling guilt over not reading something that was assigned to them instead.

↳ Hypnos and Thanatos

Hypnos (Ὕπνος) and Thanatos (Θάνατος) are, respectively, the personifications of sleep and non-violent death; the twin sons of the goddess Nyx, they live in the Underworld, in a place where the rays of the sun and the moon will never touch. Out of the two, Hypnos is said to be the gentler one, although both are ruthless in their own right.

#BookADayUK / Favourite Agatha Christie mystery
I’ve only read three Agatha Christie books: And Then There Were None, Death on the Nile & Murder on the Orient Express, but I think And Then There Were None will be my favourite for a long time because I cannot imagine a more brilliant mystery! It may not be a book I’ll treasure forever but after reading it, I wanted to enthusiastically recommend it to everyone I knew. It has those moments that make you sit up and gasp, and wonder how you didn’t notice them before.

"I don’t know why people teach kids about "pimples" and "hormones" and "armpit hair," and refrain from telling them that if they don’t achieve their billion-dollar dreams at the age of twenty-one, there will still be much more to life. And that when you fail at your first job, it isn’t going to be the end of the world. And eventually you will realize that each person’s world is different and your only job is to figure out what your best world can be."
