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.


I've lived many lives so far. I wonder what else is reserved for me.
Life's too short to keep a routine. Enjoy it, no matter what.
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 :-)

No dia 04.12.2013, decidi aderir ao desafio da irus "1 país - 1 autor", como se nunca tivesse lido nada até esta data. Vou acrescentando essas leituras no mapa
On the 4th of December 2013, I decided to join irus' challenge "1 country - one author", trying to read at least one author from each country, as if I had never read anything before :) The following map helps me to keep track on the results
1 país - 1 autor
