I love buying books ... on sale!
I have a paid discount membership to Chapters.indigo bookstore just to ensure I save money on my purchases ... it's not a waste of my money!
I buy books online because I often get a bigger discount ... most of my hardcover books are 40-50% off! Yippeee!
My hubby buys me books all the time (Bless his heart and soul ... he's amazing)
He refills my Chapters.indigo gift card so I can buy my own books (he really has no idea what books I want, need or desire) which I can use both in the store or online (for those of you without a credit card this is a great tip! You can buy a gift card and use it online just like a credit card)
I buy myself books all the time and so I find myself with 40 books on my to-be-read bookshelf
Some were given to me but most are brand new!
***this does not include ebooks I've purchased ... hehehe
They are beautiful ...
did that stop me from buying 3 more books yesterday?
Um, NO! I NEED THEM!
I had no idea Lisa Renee Jones was going to leave me on a cliff hanger in her book 'If I Were You'
And did it stop me from placing a preorder for June ... 4 more books?
Um, NO ... I need those too!
I have every book in that series (Outlander by Diana Gabaldon) and well I surely need the books in the other series!?!?
Books are my drug!
I crave them, I need them, I want more!
I'm not ashamed either ;)

|two media shelves dedicated to specific authors|
and random stuff on the very bottom! lol
So if you think you don't have enough room for bookshelves and you have a lot of paperbacks ... this is a great solution!
PS: (do you do PS on blogs? oh well ...I'm doing it! lol)
I am not a greedy book lover either ... I share my books with a select few who know the rules and are trusted with my darlings ... Lisa's lending Library ... it makes buying books more wonderful when you can share it! =)
