I’m such a book whore! I just spent over $150 on books this week. I love everything about books and bookstores, the exuberance of creativity, the intellect and the passion within the pages of the binded papers. I love it so much… that it’s actually my favorite gift for people I truly care about.
Yes, I know that not a lot of people appreciate books as a gift. It’s like getting a sweater or bunny flip-flops when you’re six-years-old, when all you wanted was that new Transformer toy. So I’m not really sure how “cool” it is to give books. Have I turned into that old, geeky, boring uncle who gives the lamest gifts?
Well, hear me out for a second… see with almost any other gift you may give, they may break, rot, get old, or die… but with books, the knowledge you will gain from them will last FOREVER and EVER! It’s something that will live with you for the rest of your life, if you actually read it! Furthermore, it may help you out in so many ways by teaching you so many things… and all that other geeky stuff…
So yes, I’m a book whore… expect books for your birthday…. if I really like you…. =)
Oh oh oh…. here’s some of the books I bought:
