Weirdness

Is it an unhealthy obsession to be taking photos of your books? I'm thinking it might be...

This week's pile of books acquired... well the last couple of weeks anyway. I'm blaming nakeisha for the top two, the TV series, Waking the Dead, for the next two, someone, but I can't remember who, for the book of essays by Ursula Le Guin, and anglersrest for the last one. None of it has anything to do with me. That's my story and I'm sticking to it...

The books in my Chunkster challenge minus two - one of which has been read and one of which is being read.

Part of Mount To Be Read. Though some of these have been read, the Pratchetts for instance. And what's weird is that I had no idea I had two copies of The American Boy by Andrew Taylor until I looked hard at this pic. Anyone want one?

More of Mount To Be Read... but not all... it's a mountain that's spread itself (again *I* had nothing to do with it) all around the house. Both these bookstacks are in my study. I'm kind of weird in that I like to keep my treasured books close. I stand and look at them sometimes and they make me smile. I'm either easily pleased or this obsession is indeed becoming unhealthy.

If I visit people and they have bookshelves it's the first thing I head for. With almost indecent haste...

The blue book in the middle of the first pic is The Wave in the Mind by Ursula K. Le Guin. It's 'Talks and Essays on the Writer, the Reader and the Imagination'. I saw it talked about *somewhere* and as I like the author and enjoy essays and needed another book to get me up to £15 free postage on Amazon... that was what I got, along with the holocaust books.

And isn't Shopaholic great!

I don't know yet, but suspect they will be. *g*
