Just a quick introduction about me. My name is Nina, now living in Bangkok. I’ve also lived in Chiang Mai and Amsterdam, and Tokyo is my second home. I love books, simple as that. It is my hobby, my escape, my favorite objects in any room, my favorite things to buy. I like being open to different genres so I’ll read anything and everything. I did not major in literature, and I don’t know all the theories, and I might not understand the significance of this and that…I just enjoy reading.
My favorite author is Milan Kundera, and his books “The Unbearable Lightness of Being”, “The Book of Laughter and Forgetting”, and “Immortality” changed my life. I also lovelovelove “The Picture of Dorian Gray” and “Lolita”. The slightly dark and gnarly ones always thrill me and are my favorites. (I actually have so many favorites; I say almost every book is my favorite.)
There is a quote by Henry Miller: “A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition.”
I agree with him. So read everything! 😉
I am also a coffee addict, and I also love flowers (and keeping them in my books), so…that’s pretty much what this blog is all about. 🙂
I also like: travel, advertising, photography, writing, animals, dark humor, dark chocolate, dark red lipstick, dark red nail polish, American classic cars, cafe-hopping, Frank Sinatra, Arctic Monkeys, Bob Marley, The Rolling Stones, Amy Winehouse, high-rise buildings, wandering, reunions, living in Tokyo, living in Amsterdam, driving around Chiang Mai, playing with different kinds of coffee-making instruments,
Mad Men Don Draper, and…I just like so many things.
So. If you have book recommendations or want to discuss books or just want to say hi (or send me books! 😛 )…..Please do. 🙂
– Nina 🙂
