Re: Who Loves Reading Books?

Great topic @Denv12

Thanks @Shaz51 for the mention

When I downsized recently my bedroom had to fit 3 bookshelves. Love books
My subjects are

Crime and forensics
True stories, usually about overcoming adversity
Historical novels
Cars esp unusual or collective
Mental health books
Self help books
Cats and cat stories
Recipe books although I rarely use them
Aromatherapy books--lots of these
and prob lots of other.

I borrow from libraries and own lots, but buying more second hand these days as I can't afford the cost of new and novels are put in the little libraries in my area
