It's been difficult to come across new books this month, as Matt and I have been in the same hostel for nearly 6 weeks. Most of the people staying at this hostel, live here long-term (like us) and aren't big on reading. Our small, pitiful bookshelf consists mostly of books in another language, so it's been...
