I enjoy reading. Each night or rather since I’ve become quite the night owl as of late each early morning I go to bed and I read a little bit of a novel.
It seems that no matter how tired I am I can’t sleep without reading a little bit. Even if it’s only a paragraph or a page. It’s like reading is my sleeping pill.
I read enough books that I should borrow them from the library, but I don’t. I like having books when they come out and you can’t always get a new book at the library as you are competing with everyone else that wants to borrow the book.
So I buy my novels and every once in a while we’ll go to a used book store and turn in our books. We get some money back for the books. No where near what I paid for them originally, but it helps.
Do you enjoy reading? If you purchase your books what do you do with them? Do you save them for garage sales, throw them out, lend them to others or turn them in to a used book store like we do?
I just had a great idea. I tend to read horror novels, detective type murder mysteries and other thriller adventure novels. Perhaps some of you might be interested in trading books back and forth? I’d send you five novels and you could send me five that I haven’t read?
I say five, but it could be any number. I figure five is worth sending when you add in the cost of postage. Certainly you wouldn’t want to ship too many at once or the cost of shipping them would be too high.
If anyone’s interested in doing something like this let me know. Maybe I could set up a book exchange group.
BTW I do realize this contradicts what I said about borrowing a book from the library. I just thought this might be a good idea.
