Books, glorious books

So when I'm not knitting, crocheting, sewing, cleaning and generally running around after my lovely girls, I am reading.  Reading, reading, reading.

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:

Do you?

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.

  1. You made me giggle about the way you are with books ... I have the same OCD tendencies about them ... they must look brand new even after reading ... I just can't cope with broken spines and turned down pages :) ... Bee xx

    1. Oh am so glad it's not just me. Most people think I'm crazy but a broken spine can make me cry!

  2. Aw thanks for the mention. And a grand job of reviewing you do too!
