the December in which I am half-dead // a 2016 monthly wrap-up post

This month, I have learnt two lessons: 1) Holidays do not equate to more reading time, especially when you’re going overseas and this thing called motion sickness gets in your way, or when you have the sudden urge to rewatch a series. 2) However, due to these things called clearance sales and exchange rates (and the fact that you actually money to spend), you buy more books!! Even if they’re probably going to end up being ornaments on your bookshelf…
