Book Blogger Hop
I know I wasn't supposed to be posting I'm supposed to be reading but started trolling book blogs. I came across the Book Blogger Hop which I had seen before but as yet had not participated in. It gives other bloggers a chance to find you and you them; as well as readers looking for new book blogs.
This weeks question: How many books do you own? This can include books in your to-be-read (TBR) pile(s) and books you have already read that are on your keeper shelf.
A lot that is the most articulate answer I can give you to this question. I have loved reading since I was a little girl and my mom and remember my mom always telling me I'd need more light or I'd end up needing glasses (only one in the immediate family who has never needed glasses let me just say). I had a tall 5 row bookshelf in my last apartment stacks in front of stacks. The books got boxed up and about 5 smaller boxes got sent to the attic so the only ones out are ones to be read, of which there are probably 20+. That doesn't count the ones in my mom's attic. I know there is at least one box of "The Babysitter's Club" books, some "Nancy Drew", and all of the Laura Ingalls books. I have at least one plastic tote of mine and my brothers children's books to pass down when my two girls stop destroying theirs (crimes of passion but book murders none-the-less in my opinion). Not nearly as much as our wonderful host I'm sure but enough to start a flea market stall with. Most girls dreamed of weddings. I dreamt I had a floor to ceiling Victorian era library.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again!!
