Gratitude Photo Challenge – Day 6

Day 6 of the challenge requires me to put up a photo about something very close to my heart — BOOKS! And have I got the perfect shot!

Books to be read. Pic taken retro-style

These are all the books on my bookshelf that I have yet to read. Trust me to continue buying more books even though I haven’t finished the lot. I was good for a long time and had brought it down to the mid-twenties but then I went nuts again! Sigh. It’s hard to resist bargains sometimes. 😐

Please tell me that there are some of you out there who are as bad as I am!!

Until next time,

      It feels good to know others are like me Rose! It’s hard to resist, isn’t it when you find some good ones? I found two this morning that I bought by Jennifer Egan…an author I’ve never read but whose books sounded very interesting!

    I totally am the same, book shopping is a’pick me up’ activity for me. I have so many south Asian author books and for the south Asian challenge 2012 , I am going to try to read those I have and resist temptation to buy more.

    Nice picture BTW!

      TH, I browse through bookstores everytime I go to the shops…some people like window shopping, I love book browsing. And then, occasionally, I cave at the shops. Most times, I note down names and then buy them online. Also, I realised upon taking this photo, that I probably could do the South Asian challenge this year — I have about 8 unread books by South Asian authors in that pile!

    you know I am just as bad, don’t you? I’ve stopped couting the number of unread books on my shelf. Definitely can’t resist buying at least one book if I walk into a bookstore. 😀
