I should not be allowed in bookstores unaccompanied, or without restraints. I cannot resists books, they are like a drug to me, and I am completely and utterly drawn to everything about them: the fonts, the spines, the covers, the sizes, the order of the rows, the over-sized ones that you want to page through so carefully, the wee ones that can fit in your jacket pocket, the children’s picture books that make you feel five again, the YA aisle that is often miles more interesting than the "fiction" section, the biographies and histories that make you want to know everything, and the feeling that I could literally lose days of my life and never see the outside - happily.


  1. I know exactly what you mean!
    There is nothing like a bookstore! I'm even addicted to online ones lol

    When i just look at a bookstore my boyfriend already starts saying no :(

  2. hahahah story of my life! I enter a book store to "just look" and walk out with about 4 books haha.

  3. I just found your blog, and I would like to say I quite like it.

    Your writing is to the point and fun to read, and your blog if simple and not overly busy.

    And I see you now have 150 follower, congrats! =)

  4. I came from the BlogFest event.

    I sooo know the feeling!!!

    Will try to remember to come back for your BlogFest post :)

  8. my guilty confession is that I love the smell of a new book!
