Books Are Food For Thought

So i finally decided to get my books out of the boxes and put them in my room.

First I just put all of them on the floor

Then I discovered I couldnt walk without stepping on a few,

so i piled them in a corner

Then I stood there pondering how is should go about this

I decided to make individual piles in alphabetical order

Finally had it done, it was back breaking work!

Then my mom came in and yelled at me, told me to get all those books off of the floor

So i placed them on a few shelves

My childhood books

My preteen books

My early teen books

My Late teen romance novels

Self help section. I dont even like Coelho, but i own all his books

Currently one of my favorite Authors

Religious books section

Now all thats left is stamping every book I own with my name


I have over 100 Archie comic books, and for some reason i discovered four copies of withering heights and picture of dorian grey.
Im going to give the extra copies away.

There are a few titles missing, I own a little over 500 books.

Missing Books :

1- The Five People You Meet in Heaven, & For One More Day , by Mitch Album

2- Vagina Monologues By Eve Ensler

3- The Lovely Bones , & Almost Moon by Alice Sebold

4- P.s I Love You by Cecilia Ahren

5- 11 books from my sister sister collection

6- 6 books from my Sweet valley High Senior year series

7- 3 Anthony Horowitz books.

Now that is A LOT of books!
If you have any of my books please return them ASAP!

I know exactly where my sister sister books are, my best friend in 5th grade borrowed them and never gave them back. I havnt spoken to her in 12 years. So I dont think its appropriate for me to call her and be like Where the hell are my books!

January 17, 2009 at 1:03 AM  

Books are just thoughts of other people, so you feed yourself of others thoughts...

some are right, some are wrong, some are just clueless, some has meaning, and some has no meaning.

and I need one for grammar... ;_;

January 17, 2009 at 1:10 AM

I have almost two to three hundreds but my mom threw my childhood story books away. Now she threaten to throw all my novels away which I hide them in my store room in the most corner and most dark place, pity them. I hope she will never find out where i hide them.

January 17, 2009 at 12:19 PM  

Amazingly large collection. At least, this side of the planet. I could never keep more than 50 books, always listing them up for sale on Amazon once I was done (when I was out of Kuwait though). Not a big fan of rereading them!

Would you be interested in donating any books in a charitable event? Profits will be donated to local/international charities.

January 17, 2009 at 12:47 PM  

mashalah wanasaaaa !!! i loved the idea of stamping !!!!

January 17, 2009 at 1:14 PM

January 17, 2009 at 5:26 PM  

I LOVE BOOKS! I like even more now, lol. I tagged you with the butterfly award thingy, check it out in my blog post.

January 17, 2009 at 6:13 PM  

Oye! I had a hunch we'd totally get along! What do you do with the books you don't plan on rereading again?
I consider them clutter, which I hate. I guess one of these days I'll try to arrange some sort of book swap.

January 17, 2009 at 6:46 PM

I had hundreds of books, but I gave a lot of them away, and I sold half (including my entire Archie collection) in flea markets.
