B Is For Books


Brown and Black bears are all over the northern region of Ontario that I live in, but since I live in the city, the only bear I see is on the Big Bear sign from the convenience store.

That's not the B I have in place to discuss, no, with BEA (Book Expo America) going on, all I can think about is books. It doesn't help as I sit in my home office writing this I am surrounded by them. I mean, they consume me!! See for yourself!






This is the bookshelf filled with my faves. My personal collection.











                       




These books I still need to read.

A.K.A
My TBR pile








And this is my closet shelf.
It has all my signed copies and audiobooks.
FYI: I consider my signed copies to be so valuable that they get put away from eyes who may ask to borrow them. It would kill me to lend one out and not get it back. Sad, but true.

So now you know what a book junkie I am, and how bad my addiction is, what would you prescribe??

  1. I would prescribe 'keep on reading!' who doesn't like to read? although I think your TBR list is way too long but it's a good thing. at least you won't run of books to read.

    coming from alphabe-thursday. hope you have a great day.

  3. You have as many books as our public library. I'm impressed.

    One of my pet peeves is loaning a book to someone and not getting it back, especially a signed, hard cover book. I don't lend books anymore for that reason.

  7. My late father had a vast library. It's his fault that I became addicted to Poe.

  8. Ha! I tend to use the three libraries that are nearby, or my shelves would look like yours! As it is, I have a lot that I own!! I don't think there is a cure, however...

  11. I love books too.

    I think I would prescribe a nice cozy sofa, with a soft blanket on a cool rainy day... SO you could read another book!

    You do know that only brilliant people love books that much, right?

    Lovely post for the letter B.

    Thanks for linking.

    A+

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
