So many travel books and so many online resources. So much to get educated on! So far, my favorite travel guides are Lonely Planet Japan and Fodor’s Tokyo. Mainly, I like the layout of the information contained within these books.

I suffer from tsundoku which is defined thusly: The acquiring of reading materials followed by letting them pile up and subsequently never reading them. Yes, I have a collection of books that maybe, just maybe, I cracked the spine on. […]
Forgot to post these pictures from Barnes and Noble that I took over the Chirstmas holidays. I had forgotten what it felt like to walk around a bookstore.

You see, as part of their closing sale, I discovered LEGO Minifigures (Series 4) and bought a few at discounted prices. Since then, I’ve been hooked on these “random” packages of LEGO.
