"Don’t you want to join us?" I was recently asked by an acquaintance when he ran across me alone after midnight in a coffeehouse that was already almost deserted. "No, I don’t," I said.

June Book Photo Challenge: Day 28 - Freebie | Newspaper’s book reviews
I love reading book reviews in the newspapers. They give some awesome, witty reviews and I can be assured that if I ever want to buy the book, it’ll be available at local bookstores. And most of them come with discount coupons too!
The newest book I bought thanks to their book review was ‘The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair’ by Joel Dicker. The opening sentence of the review already got me hooked. And when I saw it at my favourite bookstore… The rest was history.
The little things? The little moments? — They aren’t little.
