  • I do not very often let people in, whether that be my life, my thoughts or my home.

    I find that those that I do let in, to my home at least, are drawn to my books. I catch people looking at them, standing a distance away with their heads on one side reading the spines, or sat in the reading chair taking sideways glances.

    I always wonder what they are finding out about me by looking at them that they didn't already know.
