Borrow, Don't Buy

That's my motto when it comes to books.

Since, I found out that I can borrow books (read: paperbacks) that are just recently published from our subur's library, I don't spend on books anymore. I know that buying books is like building up a collection and I really know the feeling of amassing them. But for now, I don't want to create more mortgage for me. We are running out of storage space. :)

Registering at the library was one of the best things that I ever did to save money. I get to read the latest release without having to spend a penny. Well, a penny maybe for the fuel in going to and fro.


I also get to borrow audio materials and some books for Jens. Because let's face it, however many the kids books are, they will eventually get tired of them. :) So variety is a like a holiday.

I've borrowed so much and read so many but there's one book that I would love to recomment to everybody. Sundays at Tifanny by James Patterson. I don't really know how to give a good review but I will give this one a thumbs up. It is a very light read, words are so simple to understand, just your common English words, simple story, too few characters but you can't put it down.
