Personal Journey in Books

My idea is to do a photo essay that will be a story of the last few years of my life told through the books I've been reading at different times. I always have stacks of books sitting around, as I read about six at a time, and I want to use them to tell the story of what I was doing, working on, and thinking about during that time. I will use photos of actual stacks of books (I'll have to re-create some for the past few years), quotes from those books and short text about what was going on in my life, reflections on what I learned, etc. I think this project would give me a good mix of "textures" of text (short quotes and journal-type entries), and some beautiful images to work with. It could also be a kind of love letter about the beauty and wonder of books.
