“There is nothing like the smell of books, both new and old. If someone ever bottled the smell, I would be all over it .” - Tiffany King
Few feelings compare to that of walking into a book store, the smell of crisp new books washing over you the second you walk through the door. It is the feeling of knowing you are surrounded by unexplored worlds, unknown characters, and potentially life changing stories.
Today I spent a few hours wandering around one of my favorite places: Barnes and Noble! I did not end up getting as many books as I had planned because my store did not have one of the ones I really wanted in stock and I decided to wait and order a few others off BN.com instead, but I think I still made out pretty well! Here are today's beautiful new additions to my bookshelves.
I am super excited about adding these to my collection. Fahrenheit 451 has been on my must read list for ages and I have been hearing nothing but amazing things about We Were Liars all summer. Persepolis was a recent discovery, but I am really looking forward to diving in nonetheless.
Confession: I actually read We Were Liars today after I got home. As in all of it. I'll definitely post about it in the near future but right now I am in the post-reading shock phase and I just need a few days to process the mind blowing I was just subjected to. Stay tuned!
Have you bought any new books recently? Or are there any that you are really looking forward to getting your hands on? I am always looking for recommendations!
