Foto Friday | Books

I ought to take new pictures for this prompt, but I got so busy, so I decided to check the vaults again...


I took this last January as part of my Project 52, which I wasn't able to continue when I hit a prompt that I couldn't do. I am planning to continue or may re-do it next year. Anyway, the prompt was "Books," and I just gathered some books I have to take this picture.

I first posted this picture on my personal blog, I am Janujennifer. Like what I said there, I wasn't really a bookworm as my parents didn't cultivate the habit of us reading books (other than our school books) - because times were rough and we didn't have money to spare for books, which were (and still are) quite expensive (there weren't thrift shops back then that we knew of). Aside from that, our house was way too far from most establishments.

I may not a be a bookworm, but I do have some books, books that I was able to buy and acquired. Currently, I am reading "The Best Life Diet" by Bob Greene, but what I am reading is the e-book version, because the book itself was way too expensive here in the Philippines.


I took quite a lot of pictures that day, so I decided to turn it into a digital scrapbook layout, using a pre-made template I download off the Internet. I forgot who created this, but the template's name is "Freshly Squeezed."

Have a great weekend ahead!

I like the scrapbook page. Very cute. I like the dark black and white. I too rarely take new photos for the prompts, but I love going back and editing a picture that's been sitting around in my folders.
