We all have books that are keepers; autographed books, books written by friends, reference books (yes, I know we can find the same info on Google, but there's something reassuring about returning to a well-loved reference book), and of course, books that we just haven't gotten around to reading.
We all have well-stocked (sometimes towering!) TBR piles.
We have books we've been meaning to give to friends. I have a friend who's an aspiring writer and I promised to give her book 2 of my Dream Club Mysteries. She's currently reading NIGHTMARES CAN BE MURDER, book one.
She hopes to write cozies and I figured it might give her some inspiration. Plus, she loves books set in the south, so there's another reason! After all, inspiration is everywhere. Check out the bowl of alphabet soup below!
I know Marie Kondo only keeps 30 books in her house, (but realizes that others may have more!). I could never limit myself to 30 books, could you?
I've never done a count of how many books I have in the house. I'm not sure I want to, because the number will be overwhelming. I know it's a lot more than 30. How about you?
Mary Kennedy PS stay safe and do lots of reading during these challenging times.
