Book Addict

Few weeks ago I went to the library at hubby’s college and realised how I missed browsing and walking around books. I really enjoyed the smell of it, the beauty of it being in order and the ambiance of the library itself. The last time I was in such a place was ages ago. I came across books which I used to carry around university and books that I hated most. It brings back wonderful memories of being a student with only one thing in mind, to graduate.

Hello! Earth to Monstermom!

Back to book business. Second hand books are cheap in Australia. I usually shop for it at the garage sales or Sunday Markets. Books will be the first thing on my checklist. As for now, I’m proud to announce that I’ve almost completed collecting Patricia Cornwell’s novels which cost me not more than $5 each. I even got some of the hardcover books at $1. Next will be Tom Clancy, Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve.

Most of the ladies that I know would go crazy over Royal Doulton, Corningware, crystals and stuff. I’m just the opposite of it. It doesn’t matter as long as I’m happy…
