It’s Sunday! Do you know what that means? It’s that magical time of the week when you take pictures of socks and books—but also, it’s time to do some recap on the pictures I’ve been uploading to my Bookstagram account (@miguel_morell) throughout the week. Let’s see what I have in store!
I love this one! These are the wonderful gifts that my lovely friends gave me for my birthday. That fluffy, super cute sheep has been christened as Kyle Jeremy III (yes, it’s official now)—I’m having tea on it right now! I also love that Marcos gave me The Tales of Beedle the Bard, since I was about to buy it myself! I’m already halfway through it, I’ll let you know what I think! Scrawl is such a fun game, too. We had a go at it at my birthday, and the results can be catastrophic :’D and then we have Todo es poesía in Granada (“Everything is Poetry in Granada”), which reminds me of how wonderful and amazing my hometown is ♥
How to begin to describe this one… hahaha. So recently, I took over the Social Media section in my bookshop—we thought it was a better fit in Media Studies than in Computing. Of course, that means I also had to extend our selection to Youtubers, the most of which is PewDiePie. And since he’s such an… let’s say… over-the-top man, I thought that he would appreciate this kind of display. The ducks make perfect sense if you know about him, I swear!!
I posted this photo on the day I started reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (I finished it the day after, and have already reviewed it). Since I had already posted plenty of pictures of it on my Instagram—you know, just to look cool—I decided that I had to do something special. So I climbed to the roof of my bookshop, placed the book in front of the Sheldonian, and took this photo! I’m not sure if it works, but I quite like it.
You probably know this book already! I recommended it last week on my post about books for creative writers. I noticed that I had never uploaded any picture of it to Instagram, so I went ahead and shared the love there, too!
This is the jewel of the crown. A beautiful circular Alice in Wonderland puzzle sold at the Rare Books department in Blackwell’s. I don’t know about its origins, or even what its prize is, but I’ll make sure to investigate! Who knows, maybe I will end up buying it myself…
And of course, here’s the best way to end the week: Sock Sunday! Now that I have read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, I felt it was time to go into the spin-offs. And, since The Tales of Beedle the Bard were translated by Hermione and annotated by Dumbledore, what other socks could I wear, but Gryffindor’s?
Hope you liked this week’s pictures! If you have an Instagram account, please let me know in the comments. I’d be delighted to follow! 😀
