A-Z of Me: B

B is for Books

I read a lot of books. A hell of a lot. Last year I made a goal to read 50... this year my goal is 70! I have always been an avid reader though, since being a little kid in primary school, I just couldn't get enough. Nowadays I will read almost anything whether it be fantasy, horror or crime. I will read the odd autobiography every now and then but it has to be cool, like Ozzy Osbourne for example.

My pride and glories (Harry Potter) obviously get the top shelf!

I like the smell of old books and of new books. I like hardback versions and I like paperbacks (their easier to carry!) I've read tons of books, most of them on my shelves I have actually read, however I keep buying and buying until well I've got no room left. I have a little box thing filled with 'to-read' books which is actually so full I have to put the left overs on my bookcase... eep.

Oops! 
Did I mention I have even more 'older' books from my childhood I'm still clinging on too? I just can't get rid of my Lemony Snicket books! I just hope in years to come, I still enjoy reading as much as I do now! (I could have a library in my house ^.^ !) 
You can also find me on Goodreads, drop me some recommendations I always want new books :)

  2. Aaaah, I love reading too. Although I think my goal for this year won't be met :(

    I love the smell of books too, people look at me weird when I'm in Waterstones...it's normal to smell them before doing anything else, isn't it? :3
