Intellectual Indulgence


Can I just say that I’m not really a fan of e-books? And while I appreciate the invention of e-journals and PDFs for making my professional and academic life a lot easier, staring at a computer screen seems to be taking up way too much of my life. EVIL COMPUTER!!

Of late I’ve been trying to spend less time wasting my life away in front of the computer screen and complete all the half-read books sitting on my shelf.
So today, I decided to treat myself to a nice leather book jacket.

Ok so yeah, I could have simply wrapped it in a nice sheet of used wrapping paper or magazine page like how I did back in the day. But everyone needs to indulge sometimes, right?

Getting off the comp now. See ya!
