Monthly Wrap-Up #1 | Jan 2017

This is my first “wrap-up” post, so I don’t know exactly how to do it. Please write any suggestions or ideas in the comments below.

This month I visited the Cairo International Book Fair ( I promise I’ll make a post about it someday this week) on my birthday! This was the perfect birthday celebration for me. Surrounded with thousands of books. Also, thank you to my friends, Maryam and Habiba, who arranged me a surprise party a couple of days before my birthday. You made my whole year!


Read:

This month, I read only 7 books. All of them in ebook format except for the last two. I’m trying to stop depending on ebooks and convert to physical copies, so I guess that’s a start.

As I mentioned above, the book fair took part this month, so I got some books with low prices. I know it seems like a huge list, but come on, the fair is once a year and I became weak in front of all those colourful covers and discounts. Also, I received some as my birthday present from dad.
