There’s something about warmer weather and old fashioned, made out of paper, books that just goes together.
I love reading, but for the most part, I gravitate towards easy reads. I never used to be like this, but once I started university, and reading textbooks and papers became the norm, I found that when I wanted to relax, I just wanted an something easy and relaxing to curl up in bed with.
Now though, my studies are far less demanding, so it’s about time I started on my list of ‘Classics I Must Read’ list, so I can at least pretend I’m a well read, and well rounded person.
I can get a bit carried away when it comes to a good cover or six, so I’m happy to say I only bought 3 summer reads, and one book that I’ve heard is a must read for any woman in her 20’s (how could I say no?).
I would one day love to have my own personal library, but I also love reading ebooks for the convenience of portability. In saying that though, you can’t beat a book paperback on the beach.
I bought all of my books through the Book Depository which is my favourite place to buy books online. They are consistently the cheapest, and have free worldwide shipping, what more could you ask for? I also love the bookmarks they send out with their books. I’m building quite the collection.
If you have book recommendations I would love to hear them! I’m really keen to expand my reading beyond easy to read, often romance and/or fantasy novels but need some help in choosing. I’m also becoming slightly addicted to Sanne from booksandquills as she’s always got some great recommendations.
