My first reading novel, I think

I believe this was my first reading novel in grade school that got me hooked on reading bigger books. I ordered it and thought I would see. I remember it being a red bound with no cover in our school library. Long ago so I’m not sure. Then I started reading V.C.Andrews novels. My Sweet Audrina was the first. I have most of the paperbacks. I remember reading Sweet Valley High novels as well.

Oh the memories. I also like Phyllis A. Whitney.

I’m one to pick catchy covers so surprised I chose one without the cover. I mostly read hardcover but since my budget is small I choose more paperback now. Of course ebook 🙂

My to read pile recently.
My library currently. Most I bought years back when I belonged to subscriptions.
Funny thing I have Danielle Steele books and haven’t read one yet, lol

I bought for future old age. lol

My college books. I kept most.

We might be going back to our old house this weekend and I will bring back all my books there.

Many harliquin novels, classic editions, etc Once I counted over 700 books. Miss my shelves there.

Oberlin house, my first house I bought for 5,000. Then met hubby and construction began but we didn’t have much money, and living in it. Originally a two bedroom, 1 small bath, 1 small kitchen, and living room for 6 of us. Cozy. 🙂 Now bigger kitchen, upstairs loft (bedroom) unfinished room, 3 bedrooms, laundry, living room, and unfinished 2nd bath, 1 small bonus room. Hence we call it the Puzzle house. I have a tab for it if you want to look.

Messy house still but less stuff. No current picts.

    1. I can’t get rid of books either. Or destroy them. Quite a few I haven’t read. lol I do hesitate to buy one though because I need other things probably why I go for free e-books. lol

  1. I love your collection! I left many books behind at the house, but I brought one bookcase full with me. I still love holding and reading hardcover books, although books on my Kindle are easier for me. Love that Sweet Sixteen cover. I remember one year thinking I would read ALL the fiction books in our school library. I started at the beginning in the A’s. I think I made it through one and a half bookcases for the entire year. I was still in the A’s. 🙂

    Happy reading, Julia!
