My usual weekend hunt saw me acquiring two books. With the rate at which I am acquiring new and wanted books onto my shelves, it seems I may have to get extra shelves as the old ones are filled and would have no room for new ones.
With this new challenge I am about facing, I have been thinking about so many alternatives for my new books. The most convenient solution that I have thought of and likely to acquire is a kindle. Do you think a kindle would be the ultimate solution for my new books? Should I build additional shelves which is likely to take up all the spaces in my room? Should I stop acquiring new books altogether and concentrate on reading those on my shelves? What do you suggest that I do?
Here are the books I purchased:
(1) Property by Valerie Martin: This book won the Orange Prize in 2003. Toni Morrison has said of the book as ‘The writing – so prised and clean – limbed – is a marvel’. The novel is set in America’s deep South in the early nineteenth century. The story revolves around Sarah, a slave girl given to Manon as a wedding present, whose young son Walter is living proof of where Manon’s husband’s inclinations lie.
(2) The Frequency of Souls by Mary Kay Zuravleff: I think I purchased this book for no other reason than the publisher of the book – Penguin. Over the years, Penquin publishers have published some great deal of good books and I thought this could be one of them. I hope I enjoy this book.
Let me hear your comments on what you think about these books and perhaps, your thoughts on my acquisition of new books.
