I have a few weaknesses...actually a lot of them, but one of them is recycled books. I can be in a massive rush to get somewhere but when I see this stand, filled with used books, at exceptionally low prices, I just have to stop. I feel like the deer who looks absentmindedly into oncoming car headlights. My eyes glaze over, my feet slow down and my mind switches into book alert.
Today I found two. I picked up The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery which I love. I am going to hold onto it for a friend and the other is Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I have never read it or seen the movie! I can feel looks of surprise already :) You may wonder what my book cases at home look like with all these whimsical purchases. You don't want to know! I will say that I am very good at stacking.
But hey, it was the best £3.00 I spent all day :)
Do you have a weakness you would like to share?
I hope it is as crazy as mine :)
Have you read either of the books above?
What did you think?
