I HAVE A BOOKSHELF! Okay, I may have gotten it around Christmas (thanks Mom and Dad) but in my months of owning a bookshelf I’ve noticed a few things and I have decided to share them with the world.
- You care about how your books look. Before owning a bookshelf a cared about how my books look, but now it has to be perfect. For example, I haven’t bought Heir of Fire because it isn’t out in paperback and all my other copies are in paperback. I accidentally bought Cress in hardcover, but all my other ones are in paperback. Now, every time I look at my bookshelf I have to deal with the fact that it isn’t perfect.
- You spend more money. Before owning a bookshelf I went to the library because I had little space for new books, but now I buy most of my books. I don’t buy any mangas or graphic novels that I read because they are so easy to read, but I have only read one novel in the past month that I don’t own.
- Your books are now your babies. Before owning a bookshelf I cared about my books, but I lent them to anyone that asked for them. Now I only lend books to my family and close friends. One of my friends got banned from borrowing for a long time
So there you have it, the truth about owning a bookshelf. Now you can be fully cautioned when you go out to but your own.
