Love and passion for books... by Heleneee Love and passion for books... by Heleneee
...Did you know that I at least read 15-20 books every month as long as I got enough from the library? :P (around 100-300 pages each)

Anyways, I wanted to try my own version of this sort of picture. I know it has been done a lot before..

Could I use this image on my website, authorCJDunham.com on my book reviews page? I would, of course, have your name/website clearly posted below it.

I, an author, love it that you read so much!

Very sweet!! There are times I also read that much, but I can't say I do it every month (I have trouble putting a book away when I started and quite often I don't have the time to read everything in one go) Featured here [link] :rose:

Ugh, I miss that time too.. Now I don´t have much time anymore :( Miss the old times :/ Hmm, I got a lot of them! But I read mostly everything in Norwegian.. Have you read Eragon? By Christopher Paolini?

Ah I know, same here.. I am busy with school, although I admit I could read a lot more if I tried to.
Norwegian, interesting!
I have Eragon, just haven't read it yet :)

Some photos can't be called original ideas anymore, that's because they have been done over and over as you said, but they are still fun to shoot! :D

This has been done before - like you said - but so far this is my favorite version of it.

The depth of focus is really terrific. The monochrome tone is very fitting.

Plus, fifteen to twenty 100-to-300-paged books a month? You get my vote on that alone. :giggle:

Terrific shot.

Great shot! I love the whole composition and the b&w. The depth of field looks so amazing! I love books and reading too. I find it hard to do a lot of reading AND photography, not sure how you do it!
