This beautiful coffee table book tells the story about Deetjen’s, the historic inn where visitors are treated to the most quintessentially Big Sur experience. Its rustic charm and intriguing heritage has inspired all kinds of creatives through the ages, including the classic American writer Henry Miller, poet Robinson Jeffers, and actors such as Robert Redford and Peter Sellers.
Having enjoyed a delicious dinner in the cozy restaurant, I had the privilege of staying in what was once Grandpa Deetjen’s bedroom, where I lit the fireplace and had a steaming hot shower in what has to be the smallest bathroom ever, before settling in to a restful night’s sleep. Outside it was pitch black and completely quiet.

I have always been slightly envious of those readers who have those little free libraries where anyone can just pick up and/or drop off any number of books. I rarely see that here in London, although there is an abundance of bookshops and charity shops selling books.
·
But sometimes, you will see small shelves like these in front of houses, and I wonder if it is due to the residents doing their spring cleaning or decluttering as they pack their moving boxes.
·
I never see anything worth picking up.

It is summer, and I have my reading mojo back. Inversely, I seem to have lost my photography mojo. That and #bookstagram feels different now, somehow, and I cannot find the same enthusiasm to post photos as before. Is it just me? ·
·
Honestly, I am not thinking much about it. I am taking advantage of this reading mood instead -- I have joined #20BooksOfSummer and created a list of 20 books that I will be reading until the 3rd of September. You'll have to head to my blog for the full list. But to give you an idea what's on it, it has YA, fantasy, classics, and romance.
·
·
My current mood is 'fuck it' and 'whatevs' which translates to "I don't care about social media too much right now, and I shall be doing and reading what feeds me energy." Fruere vita quam maxime, as they say!

Do you have your own list of 20 books for the summer?

Books were safer than other people anyway.

Without the dark, we'd never see the stars.

I can read anywhere. Literally.

I'd be smiling and chatting away, and my mind would be floating around somewhere else, like a balloon with a broken string.

Ada perjuangan di setiap tangkapan kamera.
😬1 jam 30 menit sebelum foto ini ditangkap, kami harus menahan kebas pada pantat kami karena lokasinya yang terpojok di atas gunung.
😢1 jam sebelum foto ini diabadikan, kami beradu argumen dan terdiam selama menjelajah mencari situs wisata ini.
😥40 menit sebelum kamera menjepret keindahan kami beserta alam di sekitar, kami harus merasakan semburat panas sengatan matahari.
😝Dan 5 menit sebelum kami tersenyum dalam balutan bebauan khas belerang dan kelambu kabut, kami harus belajar mengambil gambar panorama tanp bantuan insan lainnya.

So if you don't like the picture, keep your mouth shut!

Book slump! How do you get over them? Do you take breaks from reading?
📖
Lately, I’ve been feeling that it’s been awhile since I’ve found a book I’ve really enjoyed and loved without hesitation. My last few reads I liked but I didn’t love. I’ve been reading, slowly, but constantly these past few months and I got to thinking maybe it’s time for a break?  I felt maybe I’ve been reading so much I’m just numb to whatever I’m reading or feel a little overwhelmed. I think that might be the best way to describe it. So I decided to take a reading break that lasted about 2 weeks and I must say I was feeling a hole where reading used to be! Slowly easing myself into reading again.
📖
Meanwhile, here's a picture from Urquhart Castle overlooking Loch Ness in Scotland. Sadly, no monsters were sited this day.

¿Tomas descansos de leer libros?
📖
Últimamente, he estado sintiendo que ha pasado un tiempo desde que encontré un libro que realmente disfruté y amé sin dudarlo. Mis últimas lecturas me gustaron pero no me encantaron. He estado leyendo, lentamente, pero constantemente estos últimos meses y llegué a pensar, ¿tal vez es hora de un descanso? Sentí que he estado leyendo tanto que estoy insensible a lo que leo o me siento un poco abrumado. Creo que esa podría ser la mejor manera de describirlo. Así que decidí tomar un descanso de leer que duro 2 semanas y realmente estaba sintiendo un agujero donde solía estar mis libros. Poco a poco estoy empezando a leer nuevamente.
📖
Mientras tanto, aquí hay una foto del Castillo de Urquhart con vistas al lago Ness en Escocia. Tristemente, ningún monstruo fue localizado este día.

I do not miss childhood, but I miss the way I took pleasure in small things, even as greater things crumbled. I could not control the world I was in, could not walk away from things or people or moments that hurt, but I took joy in the things that made me happy.

My first bookstore stop in NYC was at BookOff; super quirky, quite eclectic and selling so much more than just used books, this place was a perfect way to kick off my bookstore tour. I browsed to my heart’s content, bought two books and headed out to our next stop. NYC, you never disappoint.

I’m currently in New York City for a quick (extended) weekend getaway. I’ve been here for two days and have two more to go. It’s been 5 years since my last visit to NYC, but we picked up where we left off as if no time had passed at all, like two old friends finally meeting up again after years apart. I’m staying in New Jersey (Weehawken) at a friend’s place where my view from bed this morning looked like this. I’ve had the chance to visit several bookstores in Manhattan and hope to spend today exploring Brooklyn. Happy Saturday, everyone ❤️ #bookstagram #travellingbibliophile #havebookwilltravel #bibliophile #travel #newyorkcity #manhattan #sunriseinnewyork #culturetrip #travelgram

Some reading on the train from York to Whitby. Had to use an old ticket as a bookmark. 🚅
So far I am enjoying Children of Blood and Bone but I must say I'm surprised by all the hype surrounding it. Still, I'm glad a book as different as this one is getting attention. Almost halfway through. 🚅
Meanwhile, today I've got a visit to Wimbledon and Shakespeare's Globe planned. Hopefully there's some time left over to hit a few bookstores. ✈
I'm not ready to go home yet...or maybe ever🤣 What are your weekend plans? Have a great one friends!

Leyendo en el tren de York a Whitby. Tuve que usar una taquilla vieja como un marcador.
🚅
Hasta ahora estoy disfrutando de Children of Blood and Bone, pero estoy sorprendido por todo el entusiasmo que lo rodea. Aún así, estoy contento de que un libro tan diferente como está recibiendo atención. Casi voy llegando a la mitad.
🛫
Mientras tanto, hoy tengo planeada una visita a Wimbledon y Shakespeare's Globe. Con suerte, queda algo de tiempo para visitar algunas librerías.

No estoy listo para irme a casa todavía ... o quizás nunca.🤣 ¿Cuales son tus planes del fin de semana? ¡Que la pasen bien!
🚅

The Road goes ever on
and on
Out from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone.

Reading was like a drug, a dope. The novels created moods in which I lived for days.

I believe that thinking about the problem … is your problem.
