Libros Pesados

‘El pasaporte y su boarding pass señora’. I hand over my documents. ‘Adelante a la derecha, vamos a pesar su equipaje’. Weigh my bags?! Oh lord. The books.

I’m a second year law student at LSE, with already three years of politics and international relations under My belt. I am a bibliomaniac, defined as “a symptom of obsessive–compulsive disorder which involves the collecting or even hoarding of books to the point where social relations or health are damaged” – not to be confused with bibliophilia, which is “the usual love of books”. I also use literature as an instructions manual for life and I have a very (very) deep obsession with French novelist/diplomat Romain Gary.
