For my birthday I asked for book vouchers from my Dad and in laws – most people think this is boring and have told me so. I don’t care though. As a stay at home mum I bring no money in, hubby doesn’t read (unless it’s on a computer screen) so I just can’t justify book purchases. The most I spend (and it feels like I’m cheating the system every time) is $2 at the library to buy 5 of their cast offs, so cheap… love it, it’s amazing what you can find.
So, Dad offered me cash instead and suggested I hit up the second hand book stores – why on earth did I not think of that? I guess having the occasional nice shiny new book is a guilty pleasure, but getting more books works for me too.
Anyway – I need some ideas. I want to read some things I might not normally opt for. I’m open to all suggestions! What are some of your favorite books/authors?
If there are any books which would fit the categories for the ‘what’s in a name’ reading challenge for 2009, suggest those too! The list is as follows:
1. A book with a “profession” in its title.
2. A book with a “time of day” in its title.
3. A book with a “relative” in its title.
4. A book with a “body part” in its title.
5. A book with a “building” in its title.
6. A book with a “medical condition” in its title.
I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with, and then seeing how many of them I can hunt down. Fun times ahead!
Thanks in advance 🙂
