I went through a phase where I bought a book a week.
Then I stopped that because I realised there were a lot of books on my shelf that I hadn’t read yet. I thought I wouldn’t buy another book until I read all the books on my shelf.
Good in theory but sometimes there’s a book I really want to read so I’ll buy it.
Now, I live in a place where there aren’t any bookshops (something I hope to change one day), so I can’t buy a book any time I want. Whenever I go back home I love going to bookshops and op-shops to stock up on books.
I brought back twelve books from my most recent trip. I love that I got eight of them from op-shops, all for about $10.
So far I’ve read seven of these twelve. Currently reading Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and next on the list is Life of Pi.
Love ticking off my reading list and reading more widely.
I definitely love getting books in bulk, but I love books so much that one at a time is fun too. All that matters is getting a book I’m excited to read.
