Books, books everywhere!
Hi, my name is Domino and I’m a book addict. It’s been about 39 minutes since my last bout of reading and with your help… Oh, who am I kidding? I have no intention of quitting 🙂
I will confess though that I recently fell off the book buying wagon. Badly! I haven’t bought brand new books in a few years – not since I discovered I could feed my reading habit by supporting charity book sales – but then I caved in and bought the first book in the Outlander series. In my defense, I had eventually watched season one of the TV series and was hooked and since the show was so well done, it seemed only right that I should read the books. The only problem was that I couldn’t find any 2nd hand copies… So, I decided that I would buy book 1 and just hope that it was poorly written or not really that great.
No prizes for guessing that I was wrong!
Well, I didn’t get more than a quarter of the way into book 1 before I realised that I was in deep trouble and before I knew it, I had placed an order for the next 5 books in the series. It cost more than I care to admit, but I had a reassuring pile of reading material to see me through for a while… Wrong again!
Less than two weeks and was at the end of book 6. Disaster and depression loomed before me. Then – a miracle – book 7 landed in my hands via a friend, but that only added 4 days of carefully rationed reading to my week.
Tonight, as I write this, I find myself hovering dangerously on the edge of buying book 8 in Kindle format because – Lord help me – I simply MUST know what happens next!
After that, I swear, I’ll be a good girl. Really!!
(And no, I really don’t want to know about all the other, smaller books in the series!)
Until next time…
