just completed reading (well it's more of looking) "talking pictures" by ransom riggs. it's the second book i read from this author.
at first i was disappointed because it was more of a photo book rather than an actual reading book. but as you turn the pages, the photo as the title suggest, became "talking pictures"...
my mom have boxes and boxes of old photos - her side of the family and from my dad side as well. growing up, i enjoyed looking at each photo because i know there's always something written either on the front or at the back of the picture.

an excerpt from talking pictures by ransom riggs:
"we are no longer leaving behind a tangible, enduring photographic record of ourselves. future generations will be far less likely to find our creased snapshots in dresser drawers and attic trunks, as we did those of our ancestors."
