My Haven

Bookstores must be my version of heaven on earth.

To be surrounded by so many different worlds, minds, so much knowledge.... It's a feeling I can't even begin to describe. Sometimes I just want to ask if I can live there and go through every book they have, because I don't have money enough to buy all that I want.

When the other girls go whopping for clothes and all that, I go find the nearest bookstore and loose myself for hours upon hours. I never notice time passing in there.

When I lived at home our living room was our library. My younger sister and mother are also big readers and my father is slowly but surely starting to understand the beauty of books.

When I went to high school I was sort of the outcast and would seek refuge in my books. There was a library a few minutes from there, but I didn't really like it. However, there was a lovely little bookstore down the street which I walked to every day during my lunch breaks. I was there for so long that eventually they started to recognize me, and after a while they even gave me a discount for being there every day! XD
