QOTD: Do you have auto-buy authors? 📚 . . Besides the fact that I'm trying to not buy so many books right now, there's definitely a few authors I always try to pick up! One of them being #RainbowRowell 🌈 Even though I haven't read all her books yet (see: Carry On, oops 😅) they're usually fun to read and I always love the colour and covers 👍 . . #bookstagramchallenge: 📌 Throwbackthursday read – #bookishcanadiansapr19 📌 auto-buy authors – #bookqueensapr19 📌 I love bookstagram because: it always helps me find new, great books to read, I get to interact with the book community & who doesn't like to see pretty pictures of books? 😊 #allthebooksapril19

🎯 Do you love author-signed copies of books? I think it's a very controversial question, especially when I add my unpopular opinion—I don't much care for it. I do brand the books with my name, though, as soon as I get them home 🙈 • Now the book here: The Unbearable Lightness of Being. I am finally somewhere in the middle of part two and let's hope I finish it before April ends instead of dragging it further. Pretty sure I'm the only person in the #kunderabookclub who is still reading it 😅 I do have to add though, it's unlike any book I've read till date. Of course, we'll know how I like it only when I read it further. • Hope you guys are having a nice step-Monday! • #bookcoverdesign #bookphotography #milankundera #philosophy #bookreviewer #currentlyreading #theunbearablelightnessofbeing #bookstagramindia #bookstagramit #amreading #aworldinpages #translatedbooks #culturetripbooks
