Over the years, I have worked at a few bookstores and looking back, those were my most favorite jobs. Dare I say I have a tendency to hoard books? I used to, anyway. I love to be surrounded by books. Most any genre, except for true-crime. Those never caught my interest for very long. Back in the 90’s (baha!) I read mainly fiction; John Grisham was my go-to guy. But as I matured I was drawn more to non-fiction; (medical mostly) and I had a lot of thyroid books (back before we knew of Cowden’s Syndrome-anything.)
Last year I was in the middle, no, almost end of, Eat Pray Love. I took this book with me everywhere. But, I realized about 6 months ago that I lost it. I was pretty devastated, although I had seen the movie and was surrounded by tons of other books, I really wanted to finish this book and feel the books are always better than the movie. I was going to check it out from the library but I was really nervous that I would lose this one, too. 😦
For the last week or so I have really been focusing on getting that book again. To make matters worse, I watched the movie again over the weekend. So, that didn’t help. I had to find this book. I was a woman on a mission!
The point of my post is YESTERDAY I FOUND IT! For $1 at my library! I couldn’t believe it. I asked the kid behind the counter if he had seen it in the “Friends of the Library” area and he said he hadn’t. But, he suggested I look in non-fiction because it was probably shelved there if there was a copy.
Color me happy!
