It has been a little over two months since the Editor, our friend Sarah, and I had a wonderful book haul for the Editor’s birthday. Since such a time, we had all been very busy reading. Sarah blasted through almost all the books she had purchased; thus, when we decided to get together at Sarah’s to watch a movie a few weeks ago we thought we should do a book swap.
Kelsey and I brought books that we not only had just purchased but any books lurking on our shelves that we thought the others might enjoy.
Since we were meeting at Sarah’s that meant we had access to her entire bookshelf. This was super exciting because she has such a treasure trove of books I haven’t read. It’s a new supply line of books for me because besides the Editor’s newest purchases, I’ve read nearly everything she owns. Her bookshelves kept me going all of 2016 into 2017.
Due to my habitual borrowing of books, I don’t have a ton of books to share. I, thus, can recommend a long list of books, but I can’t lend many because I don’t own them.
Anyway, Kelsey divided her recently read books between Sarah and me. I did the same with my few offerings, and then we headed to Sarah’s bookshelves. I could have practically taken her entire collection home! She has so many books I want to read. She was gracious enough to lend me an overflowing armload. And said I could come back at any time and borrow more!! Somebody just attained Goddess status.
Obviously, I’m so excited to work my way through them. There are some new ones such as If We Were Villains, and old goodies like Valley of the Dolls that I get the joy of reading for the first time.
I am motivated to get through them, so I can take Sarah up on her open invitation. I also still have the Editor’s new books to read, so I also have that to look forward to. My 2018 reading list looks long from drying up, but I hope to read enough to make a good excuse to go on another book date this fall.
Who am I kidding? Any excuse to buy books is a good excuse.
Okay, I’ve got to go because I have a whole heap of books screaming my name!
