Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.
I know I’ve featured Mary Stewart’s books often enough here on my blog even though I’ve only read a couple of them.
