Newest Acquisitons-Sept. 02, 2009

It has been a while since I have purchased a brand new book.
I get books all the time from the library, and Mostly the books I own come from the Friends of the Library book nook in my McHenry public library. They sell books people have donated. They are extremely resonable, paperbacks are 50cents, hardbacks are a dollar. I have made some great finds in there. I think part of the excitement in getting my books this way, is the chase, or the hunt. Thank God for those resources, otherwise I would not have been able to own very many books these last couple of years. Since I have an income finally, I am now able to purchase the occasional Brand (shiny) New book from the stores. I think I did very good today. I was only going to buy one today. Well you know how that goes out the window when you see 20 or more you just have to have. (rollseyes) So for me to leave the store with only 2 was a near miracle. Just ask the husband. I love the sleek feel of the covers all new and shiny. The smell of newly printed pages. *sighs I have a book sickness, I know. Don't care though. I think most who read this post will feel the same way as myself. These two books for now go to my Mountainous TBR pile. I am feeling the pull though. We will see how long I can hold out.

Ah. The new book smell. Nothing like it.

I'm fortunate to be in a position, for a little while longer, to buy as many books I want -- brand new. I'm stocking up. When I move next summer, and get settle, I'll see what type of book budget I have. I doubt I'll run out of things to read. :-)
