I’ve always been completely honest about my weakness…umm…let me rephrase that…addiction to books. In fact, one of my ongoing struggles while living in the camper has been my inability to quit buying books! At times it has seemed as though books would overtake everything and I’ve had to scale back, giveaway and donate some of the titles that weren’t completely essential at that moment. However, that is going to change and I love it!
One of the benefits of living in a stick house again is that I will be able to rescue all my books from storage. Well, maybe not all of them, but some of our favorite books, like the old Landmark books and Signature series biographies. My older son is looking forward to reuniting with his collector’s edition of The Hobbit, my younger son wants his war books and my daughter will have my collection of Nancy Drew books, if she has any in the series left to read. Me? I’m just looking forward to restocking my lone remaining book shelf.
Yesterday my husband and I drove to Books-a-Million so I could buy a couple necessary items for school…okay; maybe it was just a ploy to get inside the store! I had to chuckle to myself when my husband found a book he wanted and handed it to me saying, “If you find anything to purchase, go ahead and get this too.” Ha! As if I wouldn’t find something to buy after that comment! I can assure you I found a couple items that I couldn’t live without and even purchased their rewards card so I can save next time around.
