In yesterday’s post over at So Many Words, Stefanie wrote about the happy feeling she normally gets when finishing a book. Similar to that, I have the excited to be finishing feeling when I near the end of a book. I have had that feeling since last night when I realized that I would likely finish Hyperion today. And I have just finished it; I will try to write up a decent review of it later today.
In the same post, Stefanie also mentioned the happy feeling one has when buying a new book. I am prepared to feel that tonight. I have decided that I will buy one book a month. I figure we can afford at least one a month. Normally I rely on the library to provide my reading material and that will continue to be the case but for my one purchase a month. I have made up a list of 15 books from which to choose my first in this little project. I have no idea which of the 15 I will decide upon; I hope to be able to come to a decision at the bookstore. Unfortunately I’ve always struggled with decisions like this.
