Some Casual Book Porn

Okay- before everyone gets their panties in a twist, no this is not actual porn. I’ve just accumulated a lot of books for my physical TBR lately and thought I might share it with you.

So here are the books that have been sitting on my shelf a while…

Since we’re on the subject I also got the fifth season of Game of Thrones on DVD and this (super easy) guitar book cos I’ve been teaching myself for a few months and my family are bored of hearing me play “Auld Lang Syne” over and over 😉 (plus this just so happens to be my favourite Beatles album cos it’s all their number one hits!)

got and beatles

So there you have it, plenty of bookish delights to get off on (sorry I couldn’t resist!)

Have you read any of these? Did you like them? (I don’t actually want to hear if you didn’t since I’m gonna read them anyway now haha!)

Ode to Used Books

O slightly ruffled books, how I love thee!

Though your creases and stains are plain to see,

And, let’s be honest, you do kind of smell,

The words inside you read just as well-

So three cheers for old books cos let’s be fair

I can’t get a better deal anywhere!

Ok- that’s enough of that- you get the idea! (I suck at poetry!) Point is- I love used books! Sure they may be in bad nick, but it’s the words that count!

PS in case it wasn’t obvious I bought more books! (Ah well they were only £12 and two of them are three books in one- what a bargain!)

Who else feels this way about second hand books? Let me know if you share this love in the comments!
