I love reading and I love books. It is a blessing that an uncle from the states gifted us with a library of books that overflow our four huge book shelves. Although it takes a lot of space in our tiny house, this is still a treasure for us to have. We use them a lot in our ministry.
Although we already have a considerable library in our home, I still cannot stop myself from visiting bookstores. I have this particular leaning and it is towards second hand book stores. In fact, this is where I found one of my favorite books, James Dobson’s, The Strong-Willed Child. Shopping books from second hand stores certainly takes the guilt away from being a contributor to lesser trees on the forests. Plus, there were even times that I get promotional water bottles and pens with my loot.
From that shift to brand new book to second hand ones, I am slowly evolving to a lover of e-books. No more pages to turn and no more having to carry that current book in your bag, every time.
