Since last Friday wondering what I am going to read next....even with a very small house filled (literatelly overflowing) with books & having ca. 40 materials from the local library at my place
Today it was asked if reading was something I had to do (forcing myself) or that I could also put a book away. Well, besides the real captivating books, reading is not a compulsory thing for myself. At least in my opinion.
But on the other side reading is a kind of obsession of mine. In which I have a very broad taste. I am not reading everything, but the range of books I read is very wide. Sometimes it creates fun moments. F.e. people who see me reading those simple romances novels (Harlequin), which often results in them having a kind of opinion of me. While at other moments I am reading Game of Thrones or a review boek about cancer or genetics.
For my own peace of mind I have to get rid of various books. Because nowadays, behind filled cabinets, many piles of books dominating several places in my small 1 bedroom apartement again. I have to create a more clean, structured environment for myself again. I started with that last year (a renovation of my livingroom/kitchen), in which I also selected books and got rid of many. But of this year many, many books found my house again
Not expensive, but mostly from trift shops and those (free) street libraries......
