Before I officially went MIA I wrote this post:
Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey – It’s Monday What Are You Reading? is a great meme where you list what you have been reading, what you are reading and what you plan to read. You can do all of this whilst browsing through a list of other bloggers and reading fabulous pages about books, books and yet again BOOKS!
To buy or to borrow? Not really a great question for me because I love to buy but if I am impatient for the price to drop I borrow then buy at a later date. This may not seem sensible but being able to see all of my books on a shelf (conquests some may call them!) is an amazing site, especially when they are all in a mish mash but still have some order.
The most amazing wall of books – apart from the colour this is my dream set of bookshelves and they would be a lot fuller considering my book stash. This includes the books I purchased just yesterday, some people have a tradition of coffee and papers in the morning, my morning tradition seems to sway towards a lay in then a lazy bathing session followed by a lazy dressing session and trip to Starbucks for a coffee with extra coffee and a minor trundle to Waterstone’s to see what is about and on offer.
This weeks visit was a couple of days early due to my special visitor I had to then move it to the day when I was babysitting so this was a bit of extra encouragement as I would not have to carry my shopping. This is not a good thing in my case due to my constant need to shop and fill a basket and actually go to the till with the entire basket – this happens a lot – a HELL OF A LOT in Lush!
This week i am reading:
I have read all of Kinsella’s other books including the latest to the Shopaholic addition and as always i am still wanting more from this truly amazing writer. I have started my reading expedition through the Madeleine Wickham collection with The Wedding Girl and will slowly be making my way through these books also. Almost at half way through i will start to read another book when i am done, there is a slightly larger than average selection for me to choose from as i don’t seem to be able to stop buying new books but seeing as this is a library book the next read will have to be one of these two:
One of these books is going to be returned without being read as I am not going to be available to return it when I am not in the area. So it will go back on the list of books TBR – what a shame. This is unless i read super fast this week which is doubtful this week due to amount of numbers i have to remember. WOW – here we go!
I have another pile of books that even though there is already a growing TBR list of already owned book that will have to go yet again on the back burner in favour of these new beauties down here:
Well here is to me being MIA and coming back on a high hopefully!
