Mix of motherhood, writing, photography and homemaking

We love books!

Books…I’d spend more for books than I would for shoes and dresses…(Gizelle Khan-yes, my quote)

(Oh in case, you’re wondering I’m back from vacation and I miss joining Mommy Moments and all the wonderful themes. So I’m starting again and hopefully next week I’ll have an entry for all missed themes.)

As far as I remember, I’ve enjoyed reading as soon as I learned how. Needless to say, I’d read everything that I can, where I am. From the Bible to Science books, Encyclopedias to ย magazines, from comic strips to newspaper articles, recipe books to pocketbooks to language books…I’m really glad that the kids share that passion with me. So let me show “some” books from our place…a little bit more and we’d be certified bookworms! ๐Ÿ˜€


The district Library which my daughter and I often visit.


My daughter reading some books at the Library. She’s into german short stories and science stuff.


Some books I ordered from Amazon.



Treasures I stumbled upon a school bazaar. (All the more exciting for paying 5 euros -10 books!)



Older boy’s shelf of reading and coloring books, memory games, cds, atlas and more. He enjoys math and brain teaser books and and any books in english.

Little boy looking through the pages of an English-German Dictionary. He was the only one who I got to practice reading to while still in my womb. He knows the value of books that not once had he torn a page even when still a baby.


Most importantly, learning the bible with the help of Bible-based books which makes it easier for them to understand.
