books belong to the eyes that see them.
Bookstores are my weakness. I made a promise to myself not to buy any new books until I finished the ones I have....this plan backfired. Chapter's had this great sale - buy three books, get the fourth free. I planned on buying four books, but left with eight. Oops?
Reading books is such a rewarding experience. Even now, as I look over at that stack of new books, I am overcome with the thrill of anticipation. I hardly know where to begin! I am most excited about The Complete Novels of Jane Austen. Jane Austen is one of my favourite authors. I can't wait to dive headfirst into the exciting world of characters she created.
As you can probably tell from this stack of books alone, I have a pretty decent book collection. I love biographies and girly books - both current and classic. I love character driven stories. I find those to be so compelling and interesting. A great character is like an old friend you can always catch up with.
I am really excited to get started on these books. I haven't had a lot of free time lately, as I've been really busy with everything that is going on at the moment, but I am going to make the most of the time I've got!
What are your favourite kind of books to read? And what was the last book you bought?
