It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.



Hello you! 

Oh the first days of spring are here.
Officially spring doesn't start till 20th but still, you can smell it in the air.
In my city the weather is weird as usual *yeah!*. 
Raining and sunless days but you can spot the green around. You can see trees
flourishing in slow motion and above all i can witness once again my favourite
almond trees starting their own precious life cycle.


New materialistic stuff came through my favourite mail man the past week. 
Books, clothes and various things. 
My favourite is this enormous jumper for cold days, 
with those adorable black and white
(since i can wear it both ways) bats. 
You see me judgemental family members?! 
I wear colour!!! :P


Things i found in a local shop for one euro - each.


But the best of all are the books i ordered (shocking!) 
During January when sales were all over the interent, i ordered some books. 
I got four from the particular edition 
(since the discount was ridiculous low) and the other 
three are coming in a future post. This cost me 3.60 euro!!


Gray's Anatomy: Classic Illustrated Edition (Hardcover) by Henry Gray. 
It's not of course the one from the Barnes & Noble Collection 
i always wanted but still, is a great, well presented edition for it's price. 
A big baby filled with many beautiful illustrations. 
So glad i add it to my collection. Of course i am not familiar with every terminology 
in there but it would be a great practise. 
Not to mention that many words are coming from the Greek language. 


Any favourite book you currently enjoy or one you want to buy??? 
Until the next post,

  1. There are so many books I want to buy, I even made a list not to lose track of them, haha :D It currently has 17 titles, how will I find a place for them if I ever buy them? >D Mostly they are popular science, but as you mentioned illustrations in your post, I immediately thought about a recent Polish book - 'The Slavic Bestiary', which has little text, but its illustrations are so beautiful I want to have it, despite me being not interested in Slavic demonology.

    1. Oh yes yes, that list. I think we have to rename it a huge book of books i want to buy :P Hmm well that can be an issue since i don't have much space either in my room. But sometimes you have to buy them no matter what! Can you write me some of the titles? Maybe to get an inspiration for next purchase? Thank you <3<3

  2. It is still very cold here, but I love it! Of course, spring is beautiful (Personally I find Winter and Autumn more so. :P) but I am not looking forward to it getting hot! Let's see... I have plenty of books that I'd like to read at the moment, and some I'd like to order, but there are so many that I don't have a particular one that stands out the most at the moment! I know I may say this every time, but you're gorgeous as always.~<3

    1. You are always so sweet, thank you <3
      Any thing expect summer, i agree!! Even spring gets hot weather in my country but it is not the hell the summer brings :/ We are children of the winter after all :D Haha you know, i meet book-lovers always saying that they have books to read and yet they buy more. What a beautiful addiction - until you are in prison without any money :P

  4. Είσαι πανέεεεεμορφη, δεν θα βαρεθώ να στο λέω!

    Ξένο το http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0029VH8CQ/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1YZ3KHTG7YLHL&coliid=I1G3ZC7GS6855K (σε leather bound) και ελληνικό το http://arsnocturna.gr/books/25-6.html.

    Το sentimental education ντροπή που δεν το έχω διαβάσει ακόμα, αλλά τα χρήματα κάνουν φτερά ως δια μαγείας, δεν είναι πως τα ξοδεύω εγώ, ω όχι!!

    1. Χαχα κατακόκκινη σαν παντζαριιιι :Ρ Σ'ευχαριστω πολύ ομορφιά μου <3
      Αχ ναι το ξέρω! Το paperback κόστίζει γύρω στα 12 ευρώ νομίζω αλλά αν θέλεις το leather bound, ειλικρινά μακάρι κάποια στιγμη να το βρείς σε έκπτωση ή κάποια προσφορά. Κάποια βιβλία αξίζουν να τα έχεις στην συλλογή σου σε δερματόδετη έκδοση!! Πως να το κάνουμε!

  5. That sweater is soo darn clever!! It looks great both ways! Oh you look glowing happy on the photos. We also have this weird weather very dull cloudy and not a streak of sunshine, but the birds are singing and the temperature is above freezing point at night as well :)

    1. Hello my dear and thank you!! It came by a surprise to me because they did not mention it, from where i bought it, that you can wear it both ways. :P I know that must be difficult for people in your country with all the heavy winter you have to deal every year but truly i envy your weather a lot. I am in love with winter!
