Booking Through Thursday : Doomsday

btt button

This week, Booking Through Thursday asks:  
What would you do if, all of a sudden, your favorite source of books was unavailable?

That's not possible or at least not when it concerns me and my reading / book-buying habits. I don't have ONE favorite place. For I buy from everywhere - Barnes and Noble, Borders, Amazon, Half Price Books, Library sales, garage sales, etc etc. I'm a book addict and I get my fix from any possible place I can. As a last resort I've been known to beg / raid bookshelves of friends and family. While I don't do it anymore but once upon a time I even used to go to out-of-town Book exhibitions or search out book happenings online and even drive a couple of hours to get there.

Any place I've ever been to for longer than a day, I've somehow managed to find the local library. The most miserable stay was when we moved to a new place and there wasn't a library within sight. I almost went crazy that year. But, hypothetically speaking, if I did have just ONE source of books which shut down, and there were no other book sources available, then I'd just re-read the books I have. That crazy year I was just speaking of? I re-read every single book I had - 10 or even 200 times. And you know what? I discovered something new with almost each re-read. Something I'd either overlooked or some nuance that had bypassed me or something. It's a great way to re-discover your favorite books.

What are your thoughts?

Review - Bath Tangle by Georgette Heyer

Sourcebooks Casablanca, 368p, ISBN:1402238797 To say that the beautiful and tempestuous Lady Serena is highly upset to find that her recently deceased (and highly eccentric) father, the Earl of Spenborough, left the care of her fortune and control over her marriage to her jilted fiancé Ivo Barrasford, the Marquis of Rotherham, is to understate the case. Too much time has elapsed since Serena broke her engagement to her childhood companion, Rotherham, (and that too after the invitations had been sent - such a scandal !) for them to feel anything but discomfort at this bit of posthumous matchmaking on the part of the Earl. Or so they both declare. Used to commanding a large household and having acted as her father's hostess from a young age, energetic and politically-savvy Serena soon finds herself in doldrums when her life is suddenly reduced to a small Dower house with none but her father's young widow, Fanny, for company and a social sphere consisting of occasional visi
