    Still Love To Read Books

    The second part of this Experience title sounds like an invite to bragging. Or at least, like the notches on an old Hollywood pistol, or the swastikas on the fuselage of a WWII Spitfire. As if I'm supposed to say: I've got x books, how many have you got? If the answer is x - a I...

    330 Books And Counting

    I love saying that I own 330 physical books....for some of us book readers that is a small collection but for me it's a great starter collection. I've loaned out many books over the years which I now regret because I never got them back and I still remember them. I don't even...

    Love Me, Love My Books

    My room is a small library. I am a total bookworm--put anything in my hands and I'll read it. If I had to pick a favorite genre, it would be a tie between horror and historical fiction, but for the most part, I'll read whatever crosses my path.

    My Home Is Like a Second-hand Bookshop...

    I just love having lots of books around; reading books, and audiobooks, too.  I now have so many of both, that I'm running out of shelf-space to house them neatly.  So the spare room is becoming pretty crammed with the overspill.  Ok, so I know there are too many...

    No Kidding...

    My Goodness! I have so many books it is not even funny. My bookshelf is completely full. I even have books stacked in front of books and wedged carefully into any spot they'll fit. The headboard on my bed has a shelf that is filled much the same as my bookshelf and it also has...

    I'm currently in the bookstore sitting in a

    corner with my earphones in, drinking coffee and flying through my newspaper, looking forward to reading a couple of chapters in a book that I've been stealing peeks through. :p. I love it. Great way to relax after work and before the gym.
