Well only a picture I wish I could draw But when I think of bibliophilia I think of that This not me coming out as a closeted book pervert uite the opposite These children in history and literature were supposed to represent the innocent and uiet nature of learning or knowledge At least that is how I have seen it widely interpreted Yet it was my fantasy to look exactly like that Willowy figure exuberant eyes Instead of the elephantine adolescent that I was Unfortunately this book reminded me of my pathetic gracelessness in which I exercised my teen
