Books, books, and more books

I LOVE books! Well, good books. Not just anything that calls itself a book. I have standards! We went to Value Village last night....can I just say that I LOVE THRIFT STORES???....so, walking towards VV's front door I spot the book section....I'm pretty sure it made me wet. There might have even been a little giddiness. There book section was pathetic....but, that didn't stop me from buying 5 books. VV is NOT my favorite thrift store, their furniture is dumpster-worthy and don't even get me started on their filthy disgusting bathroom! If you have to go potty while shopping at VV.....HOLD IT!!! Buy a bucket and use that....you don't wanna use VV's bathroom. I should have disenfected my ass when we got home.....

Back to books....a couple of days ago we came across a yard sale....I LOVE YARD SALES!!! Are you getting the impression that I love bargains, deals, sales, saving $? It's true! Anyway...a yard sale with books (interesting books, of course!) is enough to send me over the edge. I almost ran across the street....trust me, the richter scale would've registered it if I'd actually ran. We came home with over 20 books....I'm one very happy woman! Books are my favorite drug of choice. When I'm about to end a book and I don't have another one to start, I get grumpy and bitchy. I'm not happy to be around. Give me a good book and all is well in my world.

Don't bother telling me about the library....I'm not a library girl, I want to OWN the books I read. I'm one of those rare types that actually re-read my books. Remember: I read Lord of the Rings Trilogy 3 times in a year cuz I didn't have another good book to read! No, not 3 times in a row....there were stacks of books between each time.....

One bad thing about me is that I read fast....REALLY FAST!! So, it's hard to keep me stocked in books. Anyway, I gotta go get my butt pinched in the potty and then I'm gonna go read! YAY!!!

I very much have your love of books, and hatred towards dirty bathrooms. I just wish that I had the time to read more. I am currently reading 4 books at different times and places, but it take forever to get though one. 1 in the bedroom, one in the master bathroom, 1 in the truck, and 1 in the office bathroom.

I have a book fetish myself. Lucky for me, there's a used book store just a block away from our apartment, so I can go and blow money on a stackload of books, and the ones that suck can go right back to the store for credit towards more literary goodness. Because you KNOW that every now and then you think you get a good one and it turns out to be craptastic.

Yay, a fellow bibliophile.

Don't write off libraries, though,
because its a cheap way to test whether a book deserves to be paid for..

You have a riveting web log and undoubtedly
must have atypical & quiescent potential for
your intended readership. May I suggest that
you do everything in your power to honor
your Designer/Architect as well as your audience.
Please remember to never restrict anyone's
opportunities for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

gosh I love books and I love bargains just like you.

I got about 15 of John Saul's books at a yard sale (love him)

And i cary my book around in a bag (I refuse to call that huge duffle my purse) And I take it with me everywhere.

Happy butt pinching

Two things that make me happy are reading and bargains, and if the two are combined, why it is almost heavenly :-)
I have moved quite a few times, and I always pack down my books and unpack them first - they let me know, I am home. Libraries do not appeal to me either - I like to own also what I read, because I do go back many times, to re-read and sometimes just to check something - I have a detailed memory in the sense, I can locate the paragraph I am looking for within seconds.
