Why Do We Choose The Books We Do?
Three weeks ago was our Brainerd Library sale. Normally I post much quicker on my treasures, but it was a busy time and honestly, I had not even opened the bags until I went to take these pictures today. Prior to opening the bags – I could not have named more than 5 of the books I had in them. I knew I had some old Nancy Drew, but that was about it. Opening them reminded me all over again why I chose to bring them home.
I choose books for many reasons. I choose because of covers and titles. When I go the library sale I can not resist a lovely eye-catching huge hard cover read for 50 cents ( you will see a few of those here). I like picking up books that I LOVED for someone else to enjoy. I look for authors I have enjoyed, and I pick up books that I have listened to on audio and really enjoyed, like Joshilyn Jackson’s A Grown Up Kind Of Pretty and HIllary Mantell’s Wolf Hall.
I look for books I have really wanted to read like The Year Of Living Biblically and Mansfield Park.
Or I have been told that they are AMAZING like Blind Your Ponies .
And all together they compile the books that were in the bags.
How do you choose the books you read?
