I always dream to have a big library at home. But since I studied in a boarding school, far from our province, I can’t keep much books. I invested much of my time visiting the university library. Sometimes, I spend hours in the book stores to see new books and read there…I just don’t make it too obvious! 🙂

Last June 15, 2011, we moved to a four-story apartment, for the sake of my sick sister. We’re grateful to find a more conducive studio-type unit for her recuperation. Can you imagine carrying boxes of books from one place to another? E-books and soft copies of books are nice and easy to carry and read, but hard copies are still better choice for me. How about you?

    Wow, you’re so organized. My books are scattered all over the house. I think most are even gone (people don’t return books!). Like you, I prefer physical books, not E-books. I like highlighting passages that resonate with me, dog-earing pages that deserve a second read, and weird as it may sound, smelling and handling the book itself. 🙂

    • Hi AJ! I think I’ve changed for the better hehe! Thanks for the commendation! When I was in a boarding house, I use to put my books anywhere, for an effect.
      I can relate, I use to lend books. What would I expect if I fail to remind the persons who borrowed books or the persons I intentionally lent books? Till this time, I have collector’s items scattered to different people. Highlighting reminds me how many times I re-read the book or how much I enjoyed reading! I also keep notes posted in pages, some epiphanies or reactions.
      Hey, it isn’t weird; I use to smell books and I love the essence of the old papers. One time, I was caught by the librarian smelling the almost-torn pages of antique books in the university library. She no longer wondered when she saw me many times… LOL! Worst for her maybe, I bought some 19th century books during the clearance SALE of the library — another way of eradicating books, for a cause.

      Maybe we could have a book exchange! 🙂 Travel books?! 🙂

        Hahaha smelling books in the library…definitely a bookworm’s fetish. 🙂 I wouldn’t really sniff it though cuz I might get allergic rhinitis. Or worse, inhale a silverfish! Yikes!

        Oh, I don’t have that many titles in my collection (actually I wouldn’t call it a collection at all). I know it’s sad but I hardly have the time to read. Tsk tsk.

        • Hi Chaching! That’s one of my weird attitude! haha But I see to it I don’t inhale dusts 🙂 I too am cautious not to inhale a silverfish ROTFL!

          It’s ok. Maybe you don’t have much time to read, but sure enough, you have time to write for others to read. That’s a fair share haha! I haven’t scribbled much of my musings lately…don’t have the time to write 😦

  2. Good job, Curly Bookworm!

  3. Haha! You can make a house out of your books! Did you read them all? I’m also a book lover but I’m not really someone who’s consistent with reading. I like your site! You seem to be a very adventurous, bold woman! Thumbs up!

    • You surprised me with that! 🙂 I long to have bigger library at home 🙂 BTW, I read almost all of the books and reread some of the fascinating ones. May you be inspired to keep on reading! 🙂 thanks for the appreciation! We can have adventures together if you like 🙂 God bless!
