|My Read Books|
One of my Twitter friends posted a picture of her bookshelf the other day. I told her I would send her a picture of my messy bookshelf. As you can tell I totally need a bigger shelf to house my pretty books. Buying the books I read is one of my obsessions. If I read a book that I’ve purchased, it becomes a part of me. I feel accomplished looking at my books because I know I read them. They have my fingerprints on each page. It's delicious to me. My obsession with purchasing the books I read started with the Twilight series, and has only escalated since.
One day I would love to have a room in my future home with a library filled with all my books. I hope to encourage my children to love reading. By starting my own collection now, they will have it later. It’s a great investment. And not only that, but it helps support the authors, too.
Now for the contest details:
