Going back to ‘things that make me happy’, I have to add books to the list. Owning books that I love brings me a huge amount of happiness. I could get rid of all of my material possessions and not care, so long as I had my books.
After yesterday’s outburst, I decided to treat myself to two books that I have wanted for ages. They are no longer in print so I had to track them down on the Indigo website under ‘rare and valuable’. The books cost less than the shipping but it’s worth it to me to spend $25 on two books that I know I will reread time and again.
If anyone is interested, the titles are “The Rich are Different” and “Sins of the Father” by Susan Howatch. That woman can write people like no other author I have ever read.
