aesthetic image Temporarily removed

i hoard books. like i can never throw or give them away and i'm constantly re-reading them. but at the same time i can't stop buying new ones. i also tend to either read for like hours at a time or not at all. i'll go a week or so without reading and then pull all-nighters finishing one book.
