Man, I love my books. I'm such an avid reader, I joined both my girls at the library when they were both only 6 days old!
There is only one rule that I impose on my books though - no broken spines, torn edges, folded corners etc. In fact they must look exactly the same after reading them as when I got them. A hard task for some, but not for me. I think I have book OCD!
Due to the vast number of tomes that currently fill my shelves (and kindle), I made myself a resolution at the start of 2013 - only one book a month was to be purchased by my good self. I could get as many books out from the library as I wanted, but my pennies were to be spent more wisely, as the shelves are filling but the pages aren't being turned.
I had a look at the shelf today, I don't think my resolution is working:
Now as well as reading for my own pleasure, and for my book group, I am also a reviewer of YA (young adult) fiction on a site called Serendipity Reviews run by the lovely Viv. I've been reviewing for her for a year now and love doing it. If you have any YA's who like to read in your house, please do check out her blog. My latest review went on today.
