Bookbub is great! I just have to be careful and not buy too many. Right now I have 72 books waiting to be read on my Kindle.  Seems like every time I finish a few and seem to making headway, I find something on Bookbub and buy it. Of course, I also have over 50 on my Bookbub "Wanted" list that I'm watching to be on sale.

At the moment I am reading Ken Follett's "Turn of the Century" trilogy.

I have four Goodwills near me.  Paperbacks are $1.00, Hardbacks $3.00 and Children/Young Adult are 50 cent. 

So I have been spending 50 cents for hardback Harry Potter books. 

But I generally keep books I grew up with and re-read them over and over.  (Baum, Dickens, Lewis Carroll, C S Lewis, Tolkien, Heinlein, McCaffrey and Agatha Christie)

And history books.

Looks like I will  have to get a kindle, I moved states with 22 IKEA bookcases with extra shelves, built a special room for them, have many more books packed in plastic storage crates in the shed.  Must go through and see what I really want to keep and start listing them on ebay.  My son says since I couldn't train to be a librarian, I bought my own library.

At least with a kindle, the storage problem would be solved.

I think every true reader wants there own library. I have the room and the books, I just need someone to come build me some shelves.

Have you ever read Alberto Manguel's A Reader's Diary? I could relate to everything he wrote in that book. When he talks about happily spending days arranging and re-arranging books on shelves, I get it.

Love all of the books suggestions! I was lucky enough to spend most of my life in the book business, and thought it was amazing that I got paid to play with books all day! I can read and enjoy just about any genre, but have a special fondness for a good mystery. A friend turned me on to Janet Evonovich's Stephanie Plum novels and they have me literally laughing out loud!

You're absolutely right about that! I usually read when I go to bed to help me fall asleep. I have to save the Stephanie Plum books for strictly daytime reading. I would never fall asleep at night because I'd be laughing too much.
