We’re almost at the end of the year, so here I am, again, with a book haul. I’ve tried many times to stop myself buying books but it’s something that can’t be helped, I’ve learned this year. All I can do is slow down my book-buying pace a bit, which I hope I will be successful in doing next year. This year goes down in my life’s record as the year I bought the most books….unless I surpass the amount later in life. Anyways, the books.
