The Selling of Books

WHEN I should have been looking for Christmas presents for my nearest and dearest, I was searching through tables (I kid you not, TABLES) of books on sale. You can imagine my utter joy when I found six incredible books before I dragged myself to the cashier before I did more credit damage. Please revel in my excitement with me...

THERE WAS the second and third books in the Lauren Conrad series, which were on my book wish list. Then there was the discovery of the books that changed my teenage-hood...Louise Rennison's books of Georgie Nicolson... Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging... You with me? So of course I had to buy two of the books, combinations of the first four. If you don't know that your boobs are actually nunga-nungas, you need to read these books asap. Then there was Wedding Babylon by Imogen Edward Jones and Last Night at Chateu Marmont by Lauren Weisberger (of Devil Wears Prada fame).

SO AS you can imagine I walked out of there a very happy bunny, with full arms and an empty wallet. My bookshelf is looking full and I'm feeling more like an adult by the day. Because adults spend money on books not shoes, right? .... Right?!?
