Quando leio, posso ficar quieto. Não preciso de ser nada nem ninguém. E ser tudo ao mesmo tempo.
Se encontrares pelas minhas estantes um livro que te apeteça ler, fica à vontade. Estou disponível para emprestar, trocar, ou mesmo para te oferecer esse livro.

Be kind. Be brave. And be grateful. - that's my mantra


I'm a Nature guy and a daydreamer. And I love trees. "Árvores" is the Portuguese word for "trees".

I see the world without boundaries so, don't be shy. Browse my shelves. If you find a book you would like to read please let me know. I'll do my best to send it to you.
I can read in English (advanced), Spanish (advanced), French (intermediate), and Finnish (basic) - Rakastan Suomea! I can also read in Portuguese, of course :-)
