  1. I admit I have most of these habits except book possessiveness because in general I refuse the idea of having too many things. Besides libraries are the best solution if you do not want to have so many books in your home. Thank you so much for the follow. I really appreciate this. However, there is a much better writer than me, whom I strongly recommend you and your followers. It is my friend Mario Savioni. His novel “Pickles and Tarts” (very short chapters, easy to read), is a story where 54-year-old Frank has been selected by 19-year-old Nicole through a dating site. Frank looks at Nicole’s photos on the site and is attracted to her beauty. Nicole tells him she has a boyfriend and is not interested in a romantic relationship. She adds: “It’s fun to talk to different people sometimes.” The only apparent thing Frank and Nicole seem to have in common is their interest to write stories. Perhaps they want to meet just to write one together? Now Frank has already started to imagine this story, a story-within-the-main-story. “Pickles and Tarts” is a lovely story of illusion-delusion, dream-reality, non-conformist with the Capitalist system, reflective on love, sex, drugs and human relationships in today’s world. It is profound and highly intriguing. I recommend these two chapters:

      1. You are welcome and yes, please, check out Mario’s blog. I hope you like his work as much as I do. He really is an excellent writer. Chapter 11 deals with the issue of young girls being drugged and later sexually abused. That is why I thought it was something for you too.
