Day 321~366

Didn’t get home today until late, and man has the weather changed! Temperatures way down, the wind blowing a hooley and now rain as well. It wasn’t a bad morning, but can’t do photography at work! So this evening I needed the ‘creative’ bit of my brain and came up with the following. The balls magnification properties are quite funky I think.

An ISBN is an International Standard Book Number. ISBNs were 10 digits in length up to the end of December 2006, but since 1 January 2007 they now always consist of 13 digits.

I have 2 of the french books, would love to find the rest.
