I chose this photo because I'm reading "Night train to Lisbon" in which the main character is a philologist who has always lived in his books and found a comfort-zone in bookshops. He often watches the events of his life from an external point of view, as if he were in front of a shop-window.

Currently Reading: Treno di Notte per Lisbona ("Night train to Lisbon") by Mercier. 

Minichallenge:"Classic Words of Wisdom" by A literary Odyssey

The  words I chose are the ones from The Wizard of Oz. The idea of Home is everythingfor me. I surely love my very home, but I also try to feeling at home in every situation I face. If I don't feel at home, well, that situation is not for me. I try to build a piece of Home in every experience I make.
