You Have a Penchant for...socks

It's quite strange really, you can tell a lot about a person by observing what books they buy. Don't worry, we aren't judging you, just musing about a little bit about what kind of things you may like! Of course it's not always so clear cut - you could be buying a gift for someone else, but more often than not, books can be a good indicator of what you may be like.

Myself for example, have a penchant for aesthetically pleasing and clever children's books, beautiful books on design and craft, gender writing (am currently making my way through Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay), as well as realistic fiction and travel books. I realise that that almost covers all areas of the bookshop but hey! I like books.

I guess that it can be similar with music as well, you listen to what makes you feel something. Or on the other hand, you listen to something completely different to express that other part  of you. Maybe it doesn't really tell you much at all! Or maybe it does. I guess we'll never really know will we?

Let's play a game. I'll give you some books and you tell us the story of their owners. There are no wrong answer! Only stupid ones. (Only joking)
