The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. - Jane Austen

Must. Not. Buy. More. Books.

My room is already starting to resemble a library, but I seem to have a problem with buying more books. I find that the best places to buy books are the RSPCA shop in Pudsey (most fiction books are 25p each) or from The Book People. They often have good offers, and most books tend to be cheaper than Amazon or other shops. I particularly like the collections that they do, as it gives me chance to read books that I wouldn’t usually read, without having to spend lots of money. My last order included a couple of sets, and the latest Charlaine Harris which I have been waiting to be released for ages.

Here’s a full list of what I bought this time (and links if you want to have a look!)
