I can't help it.
No matter how hard I try not too, I can't go ANYWHERE without checking out books.
Doesn't matter if it's the grocery store, a gas/food mart, a hospital or... YOUR HOUSE. If there are books present, I am going to check them out.
It has gotten to the point where I ask for books for gifts. Hey- at least that way I know I'll get something I'll love.
In addition to my romance addiction, I also really enjoy non-fiction. My collection of NF has grown so large that it really is time for me to invest in another bookcase. Problem is- I really have no more room. There are bookcases or shelves filled with books in almost every room of the house. I probably buy at least one NF book a month in addition to my LARGE amount of paperback purchases.
I buy way more than I read. I know I hoard my books, but I can't help it. I'm addicted. Plus there is something magical and almost arousing about the feel and smell of a new book.
In fact, like that old saying goes- I would probably buy my books first and if there is money left- food.
Book me. Book you. Book everyone.
