My Own 'Personal Advent'. Or 'How to turn any birthday into a Christmas' by Julie Kirk

The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway | 46 Brilliant Short Novels You Can Read In A Day
January || How Not to Travel the World by Lauren Juliff. (Travel writing / blogging / memoir / overcoming anxiety)
notes on paper: 2015: A Year in Bad Portraits. You're welcome to share yours too!

December || How to be Both by All Smith. (Brilliant!)
