I Must Stay Strong

So the other day I went to the bookstore, and you know how much I love that.

Bookstore

But this time I had a plan. I had far too many books at home that I had yet to read; so I wasn’t going to buy myself anything, just birthday shop for my friend.

bookslastforever

But then when I started looking I found all these books half off.

two&halfMentoomanybookstoreadmocking

So I grabbed a bunch I liked along with some potentials for my friend. But then I looked at the bargain books. They were beautiful hardcover classics and oh, my I wanted them all.

WantAlltheBooks

So there I was with stacks of books, looking and wanting them all.

GirlWithBooksLibrary

Nothing else I seem to have this problem, except with books.

But then reality hit me. I already needed more shelf space, and really have books spilling everywhere.

So I did one of the hardest things, I had to put some of the books back.

BkHoarder

Instead I bought one book, a selection of stories from One Thousand and One Nights, in a beautiful hardcover book for only $8.

Mal_huh Whoa Wow what

I then bought a copy of Tarzan of the Apes for $2.50; a steal of a deal.

Double double yay

But then I had to do something with all the books I wasn’t taking home. So I stacked them on top of each other and carried them around the store putting them back. One of the employees saw me and asked if I needed a cart, but said no I was putting things back. He was worried about me carrying so many. But I was like I work in a library, I do heavy lifting like this all the time.

Because you know, that’s how I roll.

I Cannot Live Without You

Can'tLiveW:out

This is so, so, so, so, so, so me. I can’t live without books. They are my essence, my air, my life, etc.

Books are so much a part of me, they are a fraction of my soul. I’d die without them.

Seriously!

Stranded for Good

Stranded

I read this book  once about a girl getting stranded in the library and I used to hope something like that would happen to me. Being stranded in a library or bookstore may sound crazy to some but:

SimpleLoveBooks

Like in the movie The Day After Tomorrow, when they are all trapped in the library, that would be absolutely perfect for me.

MeanGirls I know right!

I mean except for the deathly, freezing temperatures; that’s like a dream come true.

Yep that would be pure bliss.

That comic pretty much describes my life. You see:

Adoption

 

They need a home and I am more than willing to open my doors and shelves to them. If you actually tallied up all the money I’ve spent through the years on books, it would be thousands of dollars.  Say it loud and say it proud:

Even though I have more than I can read, I buy more and more and more. 😦

 Yep. Not only do I not understand people who don’t read, but people who have little to no books in their homes. A home, life, anything without books is just incomplete.

Not only is my own room over flowing, but every part of my house there are books. After all:

Am I right?

Read Jenson ackles dean

But seriously, that’s a major thing I look for in a guy. He could be a dream guy straight out of a romance novel, but he wouldn’t anywhere right for me if he didn’t love reading. Books and reading is such a part of who I am, its impossible for me to imagine myself with anyone who didn’t feel the same way.

perfect date

Yeah pretty much.

Belle

Belle

 

Belle is so awesome! She’s beautiful, rocking her ponytail. Belle is just so sweet, smart, and able to hold her own against skeezy guys.

The best thing about Belle is that she just is herself. She loves to read and even though people find it strange is always out getting her stuff, rereading her favs. (Just like me)

belle

Instead of settling for the “hot guy” she turns him down, set on waiting for something real. She is intelligent and okay with being that way. It can be hard to find people who “get her”, but who cares.

She is willing to give her life for her father (she didn’t know that the Beast wouldn’t hurt her).

Take me instead

Take me instead

She won’t allow the Beast to yell at her or order her around

But still thanks him for everything

Beauty and the Beast

She starts becoming the beast’s friend, overlooking everything “ugly” about him and seeing his true heart.

When he lets her go, she comes back. Just like she promised.

And the end their love goes on. She’s awesome! And she likes Avenged Sevenfold

So ya, Belle is awesome. She and I are so much alike.

A Reader’s Shelf

Some of you may not be aware of this, but Moreland is my pseudonym for this blog. So this little nugget is one I made up myself. 😀

shelves

And this is true. When you love books you just keep getting more and more and stuffing your shelves until they burst.
