There is something to be said for flipping through the pages. I mostly buy used because I am not good at returning library books on time. One of favorite used book stores is Tomes and Tales. My kids love the train table that is strategically placed in the children’s book section. Tomes and Tales was the place I picked up my first Sookie Stackhouse novel. Now I’m hooked. This came at a good time. The last Twilight movie comes out soon and I need a distraction. The Stackhouse novels have been turned into the HBO series True Blood, which I have not watched yet but is on it’s sixth season. I will. One day. Right now I am working my way through the books. If you don’t know about the book series it’s kinda every type of genre mixed into one plus vampires and werewolves. And it’s pretty naughty. I picked up a few to read during my current vacation time but I seem to be addicted and I keep running out!Last week, while on family vacation in Long Beach, Washington, I visited a great used book store called Banana Books. They had more Sookie Stackhouse books so that kept me stocked up for a couple of days but today I was back at Tomes and Tales for more Sookie. I can’t help it. I’m on vacation.
One of the fun things I found while flipping through the Long Beach books was bookmarks from two places in Seattle. Boy these books have been around. Seattle, Long Beach and now Canada. Who knows where else. They are wandering books.
So after I run out of these books what should I read? I’m on the sixth now so I won’t have too long before that happens. Then I will finish Eric Clapton’s biography that I borrowed from a friend that still reads real books occasionally.
Am I the only person on earth that doesn’t have an e-reader? (except if you are Erin and reading this I’m pretty sure you don’t because of your cellphone situation, ha ha!)
Have a great night! Maybe read a paper book.
