Books, Guilt, & Havaianas

Current shopping obsession phase: BOOKS.

If there's a particular book I'm interested in, I would normally ask Bexie first if they have it then ask her if I can borrow (which takes me months to finish). This time though, I've spent the last few days glued on eBay searching and bidding online. So far, I bought 8 books already.
  • The Historian
  • The Four Agreements
  • Like Water for Chocolate
  • A Painted House
  • Sophie's World
  • Love Story
  • The End of the Affair
  • Summer Sisters

I decided to start buying books again because seeing my Havaianas collection has become an eyesore to me (for now.hehe). I just couldn't bear the guilt that my Havaianas might outnumber the books on my shelves. I hope I'd be able to find the time and the will to read each one of them soon.

Surprisingly, I've been to different Havaianas stores to see the new arrivals and I didn't buy -not even a single pair! That's a great achievement for me to be able to control the urge to buy those that used to be eyecandies to me. Although right now I can't seem to take away that black Pois from my mind...

Yes, books are addictive. We have books everywhere. They may soon take up every inch of our space. And, yes, my daughters' Havaianas are threatening to compete with the books, too. I can't raise a fuss since I seem to be hooked on Grendha myself. Looks like we have much in common :D
