The Great Book Sale

In Sweden we have a huge annual book sale every end of February in which all bookshops participate. It was and still remains a sort of sales trick, a stunt as to temporarily up people's interest in buying books. To encourage reading too, yeah sure, but mainly to get people to buy books.
I'm a book nerd above all other ways of being a nerd and as a book nerd I look forward to that time of year. Every year's the same. This past autumn I reached a point where I bought too many books to suit my somewhat shaky economy. So I promised myself I wouldn't buy any books before The Book Sale, a promise I kept and now here I am with ten new books to cram into my already overflowing bookshelves. Not all of them were on sale but seeing as I was already set to buy books I made sure to also buy a few recommended pieces.
Again, I need to promise myself not to buy any books for a while.
Next year perhaps.


  1. Maybe a new bookshelf though? ;). I just bought one myself. xox //mirre

    1. Can't fit it where I live atm so I'll have to wait just a little bit ^^ I heard something about you being about to move pretty soon, yes/no?

    2. me? naaa... I'm stuck out here in the middle of no where for the next couple of years or so. I miss book stores, and the great Swedish book sale...
