The Happiness of Collecting Books
100 Days of Happiness – Day 59
For a bookworm, there’s nothing happier than buying/getting books. I’m an avid reader, and I can be lost in the world of books for hours without getting bored. Since the last three years, my shelf has got more books and the number is steadily growing. Much to my joy, and much to the wonder of my parents (who love their space).
There are a few authors who I love more than anything, and whose works I dream of collecting completely. One author is Agatha Christie, and last month, I completed the collection of crime fiction featuring her star detective, Hercule Poirot. Another author is Lee Child, and I have all twenty of his novels featuring Jack Reacher. And I have most Matthew Reilly books as well.
Enid Blyton is an author whose works got me more interested in reading when I was younger. The Famous Five and The Secret Seven were books I devoured happily in those days, and I’ve always wanted to complete the set. I’m happy today that I’ve been able to do so, getting both box sets to adorn my shelf!
