You know when it comes to books I'm a hardcore advocate. Reading them, giving them to friends, family, kissing cousins, hell even random strangers. The point is these days it's really hard to find people reading $#!7. They're busy taking pictures of their new doggy door or the last molar they have removed. 

In France there's a bookstore that's onto something. The Librairie Mollat employees take pictures of themselves and do their best to match their actual photos with book covers. They share the pics on Instagram. Yes, I'm aware of the irony. :/

Hey, whatever it takes, huh?

Call it a ''photo challenge'' or whatever, but I'd like you to post your ''matched'' pics with your favorite book(s) and introduce them to me or whomever interested in books.

Thanks for reading.

Ohhhhhh! What a funny homophone! :)

Oi, there folks

 Roman, the word "morze" is sea, but the word "może", which is a homophone of "morze", means "can/ to be able just imagine replacing morze by może..."Stary człowiek i może"..The Old Mand who still can....." ;)

It seems funny, by other hand I'm afraid I haven't got a book I've read for a match.

Oh my! Hahahaha! How can that word "morze" mean the sea? :D In Ukrainian language it is only a verb, so it is weird and funny for me. :)

Yeah, that's a cool thing! :)

I remember some years ago it was a trendy thing to do the same with vinyls (the 'sleeveface'). There were many people taking very cool pictures as well ( )

Ok, 'challenge' accepted! But believe me if I tell you that this is the only book I have that I can use for a good 'match':

I just hope not to be suspended again for this! XD

This is not really a book about 'porn' :P    but the sequel to 'Trainspotting', and it tells the story of the characters 10 years after. I was a huge fan of 'Trainspotting' when I was a teenager (the novel first and the movie later) and I used to read all the Irvine Welsh's novels. He's one of these writers that are very easy to read (if you don't mind very politically incorrect stories and characters) because the rythm of his stories is super fast; you can read his books in a very short time.

Anyway... are you sure you don't have any book in your bookshelves that you can use to join me? Are you gonna leave me alone here doing silly stuff like this?... I hope at least you take in mind that this picture is gonna ruin my super good reputation here! XD
... gonna blame you for that!
