Soooooooo someone was a little worse for wear to take any photos, so we have some throwback pics of when I got to visit the Strand bookstore in New York City a couple of months ago. 😍
This bookstore was just heaven 😍 there was just books everywhere, I'm not gonna lie, it was mega hot in there but totally worth sweating my arse off just to stare at books for over two hours 😍and we went at 10 /11pm , which was the perfect time to go as no one was in there. 😍
Right next door to the bookstore, was my favourite store ever!! FORBIDDEN PLANET 😍 now if anyone knows me in real life I'm kinda a comic book geek 🤓 so this store is just me!! Now I loved the NYC one cause there funko pop section was just 😍 buuuuut the London one is totally better, not being biased or anything 😏
If you ever get the chance to visit NYC then you have to go to these two stores, it's a must!!😍
What and where about's is your favourite bookstore???? 📚
"If every person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary - the world really would be a better place."
R.J. Palacio, Wonder
I really wish we all could try to live by that quote.
This book is so full of wisdom and I can just highly recommend this for everyone.
I never was involved in any Bookstagram drama and I'm really not planning to.
I just want to encourage everyone to meet others with lots of compassion. To think how a mean comment can hurt others.
You never know about the battles and hardships others might struggle with everyday. So let's be kind. Always be a bit kinder than needed.
You always can decide if you want to build other people up or tear them down.
There's this one thought I live by: I want people to feel better about themselves, just a bit happier after I talked to them/ I wrote with them. At least I try to make others feel good and comfortable.
And this makes me feel good about myself.
Kindness is a choice and it's a really easy choice to make. ☀🌷 .
The lovely Winni @hundredacrebooks

I love you all so much! #spreadthelove
