A Booklover’s Dream

I called into the shopping centre today & spotted something that made my heart beat faster. A bookshop with nearly every book $5!!! The only exception was a small table of books near the door for $10.

I spent about 45mins browsing & ended up with 4 books & a boxed set of cards. I plan to go back soon for another look, as they have more pallets to unpack. They say people don’t read anymore, but the shop was packed. They also had a limited range of random dvd’s for $5. Rowan was rapt to find a Rush dvd & a John Lennon dvd.

The 2nd pic is a box of cards. You get 20 cards & envelopes, (2 of each design.) They had several different themes of cards. All $5 a box.

Rowan & I both wanted the Crime Investigation book. Today he received his Year 10 selection handbook for next year. One elective he hopes to take is Forensic Science. They didn’t have interesting subjects like that when I was at school. I hated school & the subjects were so boring. I only enjoyed sewing, no surprise :-), & English, though our novels were awful. Cry the Beloved Country, Lord of the Flies, Among the Trumpets. Probably brilliant books, but not to a teenage girl. These days they tend to get choices, as it should be.

I love reading books, I actually purchased 2 yesterday and can't wait to get my hands on the new Jodi Picolut book. I know the kindle and the pad are replacing books but i prefer paper and ink any day.

I love books too, although I also love my Kindle, I guess it's whatever medium suits the occassion. I can't remember a time when I didn't love reading, my 10 years as a train commuter were probably the most prolific. Gotta love a bargain book buy!

I'm with you Clare, I love to curl up with a book, it's the smell & the feel of it, curling up with an e-reader just doesn't appeal. Mind you if I travelled, they would probably be good, but as a total homebody, books are best. Same Julie, I've had my head stuck in a book since I learned to read, I bet you got through a lot of books commuting.
