Well you can’t fail at Day 3, that would be terrible!
I thought about lots of things around the word ‘New’ – new life, new day, new diet, new.. and the list goes on. But Friday’s have been my book day for some time and so i thought why change a good habit so i thought ‘New Books!’
Now any book lover will know that paper books have that particular smell that you cannot get from anything else and then there is that moment when you open the front cover of THE new book that has been sat waiting for you. But first you have to stroke it’s cover and tell it how much you adore it and how you and it are going to become best friends – and i know you think i am joking, but i really am not, although i do try to do these things in my head in public places as people tend to look at me with a rather peculiar expression and i have no idea why?
The lack of ready cash in the last year as meant that new books have been difficult to obtain, at least to buy, but thankfully we got a new library (or I did…) in the city center and they have stocked it with lots of fresh new books and it’s smells divine.
So here are three that i own that have waiting by my side all thanks to other people’s generosity and kindness…right now…
