There’s nothing quite like reading a book. If you’re a bibliophile, you know what I am talking about. There’s no feeling like holding a book in your hands and getting lost in the words
You can learn about different people in the world, feel connected to cultures you’re never going to visit, deal with heartbreak and derive life lessons. It doesn’t come as a surprise that many book lovers decide to ink themselves with something that will remind them forever of a book that moved them.
If you’re also one of those book readers and want some inspiration, this is the guide for you:
