The Word Affair

As I have said previously, I have an all - consuming love affair with reading and books. All it takes is for me to pass a bookshop, and I'm in like Flynn. It very nearly takes a search and rescue operation to get me out of one. I swoon at second - hand book stores, pirouette at sales of new books and virtually tackle people who give books away for free. It's a love that is all encompassing. I even read sales dockets god-damnit!!! How sad is that?

Libraries are the ultimate for this pathetic book addict. I regularly come out with an armful of books on all sorts of subjects, however I must admit I am in to non-fiction mainly. Very rarely these days I will get to go to the state library, and just walking into it with the floors of  book laden shelves starts me drooling, oh wait a minute, thats from age!

Some light bedtime reading.


  1. I am realising I have missed lots of posts, Blogger sometimes randomly drops blogs I follow off my list, it's very annoying!
    Anyway - hello again! I always have a book on the go (usually fiction though) and I love bookshops too! Are you one of those people who can read more than one book at a time? My brain doesn't seem able to cope with the strain of this! xxx

    1. Yes I usually have up to 4 books on the go at the one time. Like I said-totally hopeless. The picture is what my bedside table always looks like-crowded :) Good to hear from

  2. O,my,I think we're on the same page (boom boom!) regarding books!
    I always,but always, have my nose in something.I would go quite mad if I couldn't read!
    It is a concerted effort to keep to just 2 books at a time.I've been known to have several on the go at once.....

  3. Thank you for dropping by my blog and becoming a follower. I have just been to the library today and returned home with a pile of books! Just never have enough hours in a day to get everything done and fit in some reading too
