Y’all are either going to love me or hate me after this. I’m good with either one really because at least I’ll know you’re getting bomb-ass deals on books.
My story starts here: I re-did my basement and installed my brand new bookshelves. I finally got to pull out all my boxes of books that I’d had stored away since we moved into our new house two years ago.
But, as I was looking at my beautiful new shelves and looking at all my old books, I realized I wanted to put only my most favourite, beautiful books on the shelves. I wanted to donate anything I’d already read and didn’t fall in love with. I wanted to get rid of the things I knew I’d never read because my TBR had grown so much in the last couple of years.
So here was my problem: in the end, what I was left with was four boxes donated to a thrift store and only enough books left to fill up 1 ½ of my four new shelves. It was so much empty space, I found it a little depressing.
My quest to start filling my shelves with beautiful hardcovers and large paperbacks of my favourite things began. But to buy all the books I wanted from a traditional bookstore when there isn’t a huge sale going on would be astronomically expensive. And waiting for sales would mean a very slow process and I am a very impatient person.
I mean, I try to practice patience, but it doesn’t come naturally.
So, kick me in the crotch and spit on my neck if someone on #Bookstagram didn’t come to my goddamn rescue. I don’t remember who’s story it was that I saw, but sometimes I wish I did so I could thank them with flowers or sexual favours.
