Welcome to the first 100 days 100 words! I'm feeling quite excited about this post! I have been planning it all week and I'm even writing it slightly early (get me!)
Anyway this weeks post is going to be about books. Now books have always been really important to me, from being a very small child, I always loved bedtime stories with my mum! She did all the voices and I remember we would just fall about laughing (not great for getting a child to sleep, but such good memories). And now books are still a major part of my life. The first reason for this is that I work in a library so I'm surrounded by books all day every day (I wouldn't have it any other way) and secondly I don't think I can remember the last time I left the house without a book in my bag! I am also a member of several reading groups which I love! Finding new authors and sharing them with people makes me happy!
I now want to share with you some of my favourite things about books. First my favourite book, this is easy, with out a doubt it has to be this
I didn't read this book at school unlike so many people I know (who now hate it) I read it when I was about 19. I just loved it - enough said!
Now as I love books, I hate to see pages turned down, I just don't see the point, not when you can use any number of cool, pretty, funny, generally great bookmarks! And then it gives you an excuse to collect something else (or is that just me?) So my favourite bookmark is probably this one
This was a hard choice as I have maybe 150 bookmarks, I pick one up whenever I go anywhere! But this one was given to me buy a good friend when I was 11, I have kept it ever since. She was moving away and gave it to me so I wouldn't forget her, I haven't forgotten her and even though it is starting to look a little tatty I would never throw it away!
After libraries (of course) I love to browse in bookstores! I honestly could spend all day there, I don't even have to spend money, although I usually do! My very favourite bookstore is in Paris and called Shakespeare & Co. It is full and nooks and crannies. The books are piled up and well its just heaven!
Honestly tell me this doesn't look like heaven!
Well that's it for the first 100 days 100 words! Don't forget to add your blog to the Mr Linky. The blog post can either be your own 100 ays 100 words or just a post about books! Also try and visit some other posts and share the love!
