I read A Suitable Boy when it first came out and loved it, although if I'm honest I can't remember too much of it now. Funnily enough I finally unpacked all my books this weekend and A Suitable Boy was there. I might look into getting it on the Kindle though, I'd forgotten how heavy the book is!

My library being free made me giggle [giggle.gif]

When I sold my house I was ruthless in the clearout. I took over 400 books to our local Lions Club second hand book shop. It was tough but I knew that I would never read the majority of them again and those that I would read again, I downloaded to my Kindle. I kept around 100 books that I felt too attached to to let go, either because of who had given them to me or where I was in my life when I read them.

Letting go of books was a really big deal for me :blush:

My books are my one materialistic weakness.

:blush:


I struggled to part with any of mine, from necessity of downsizing: and I knowwwww I still have what other people consider to be far too many.

But I don't care.

:snooty:


100.
You're so much better at self-discipline than I am.

:worthy:

Time for some mindless chick lit.

I like mindless chick lit sometimes. Easy reading. Relaxing feel good shit lol [thumbsup.png]



Yup.

:biggrin:

I'm reading one set in Liverpool.
Funnily enough. Ha.



Finished that, read another.
Both fairly similar; humorously written, as well as the typical formulaic happy ever afterness.

Then read 'You Without Me'.

Shouldn't have done.

[sad.png]

Apart from the annoying 31st September thing, midwayish through ... well-written and characterised. (Needn't have had epilogue, but that's me being all purist on its 'perfectionism of everything reaching closure' well rounded literature arse).

Needless to say, made me cry. Properly, heaving sobbedness weeping.


Then again, I'm apparently human.
With real feelings.
