I miss the smell of new books. I’m on a book shopping diet for months now and I miss spending hours in a bookstore. I know I can still do that but it’s depressing especially if I see something I really, really want to buy but I can’t because I purposely left my wallet in the office to avoid impulse buying. So what’s with the Shelved post? Ehh. Just. Because.
Yes, it’s a mess. I moved to a new house but I have to let go of my old bookshelf because it doesn’t have a room in Jeff’s place except in the kitchen. It doesn’t have enough space for all my books so I know I needed to get a bigger shelf anyway. Well, I don’t have the budget yet (that’s why I’m not buying books) to have a customized bookshelf. I would love to get a new bookshelf as a housewarming gift (right, Tina? LOL) but Jeff and I decided to transform a part of the living room into an entertainment-slash-book-shelf. Here’s a sample of how we want it:
I have a list of books I want to get and its getting longer. Hah. But. It has to wait. I’ll probably just wait for NBS’ August/November yearly sale or MIBF. Hmf. That’s a long time. I might change my mind. Haha. Anyway, here’s the only book I got for the past months and I didn’t even buy it. Again, thank you Grace for the book!

I wrote this post a few weeks ago and I feel lousy to rewrite it, I’ll just add this little update. I went to BS and guess what I found?
I said I won’t buy new books. Must. Control. Self. But in the end, I didn’t. The pull is sooo strong! Bookish friends, you know how I feel right?
