The amount of boodle I spend on books can be quite frightening. Many women break the bank over clothes or shoes or fancy handbags. My weakness is books. It's all very well to borrow a novel from a friend and read it to see if it captures my attention but if it does, I have to own a copy myself. And if it's a series, I want the whole series. Preferably all with the same edition covers. One of my many OCD twitches comes from owning a series where not all of the books are of the same edition. I'll have to post a picture sometime to show what I mean. Some of my other OCD-ness or pet-'hates':
- my books need to be organised properly - all of a series together, in order
- incorrect usage of 'to' versus 'too'
- badly hanging towels on a rail (if you've watched Sleeping with the Enemy you'll know what I mean)
- bread crumbs on a kitchen counter
Back to the books - I have been loaned the first of a new trilogy to read. Quite excited to delve into the land of Midkemia properly. Something to peruse on the weekend... Or tomorrow... Or tonight :)
