Brace yourselves: We’re taking a trip back to Vegas. Mentally, anyway.
I guess you could say I’m obsessed with books. Not the seemingly ubiquitous e-books and e-readers and anything else e-related. Like, actual books. The ones with crisp pages that you hold delicately in your hands and maybe (probably) smell.
