Who is Martin Kukk-Grønbjerg:

Martin Kukk-Grønbjerg is a friendly guy who he himself claims has no humor, debatable. He has a passion for learning and trying out new things. People might find him punctual. He appears at least one hour before the start of the meeting. He does not like time wasters, debatable. Martin Kukk-Grønbjerg would call himself a perfectionist. In his own words someone who strives towards perfection. On the other hand he is very understanding in most cases where he tries not to set the bar too high -as Martin would himself put it “All weaknesses can be compensated by other skills”.

Woman reading horrifying book:

She is very engaged by the book. The events that keep happening keep her in suspense of both the good but also the evil she may find within the book. Characters who she has grown fond of throughout the book. Characters she likes and can relate to and yet fearful of what may come to happen to them as she keeps reading.

I chose this picture because it is a good illustration of the hardcover experience. It shows exactly what I mean with the aura.
