Bigger" data-caption="There are so many good books in the world. I really need to dedicate more time to reading. A while back I sat and read through a certain 4 books (which shall not be named, yeah you know the ones), and I hate myself for it. I could have read any 4 books in the world, but I conscientiously chose to poison my brain with mindless drivel. The thought occurred to me to do a photoshoot of a book bonfire featuring those 4 books; I could have called it something about purging the world of evil or something...Oh well. I refuse to pay money for them. However, if anyone is willing to donate them to me for this purpose, I would totally do it. :) Bigger" data-credit="dixieroadrash/Flickr">
