Originally hosted by Melissa from i swim for oceans, Smash & Kt took her original inspiration, and made it their own, expanding it to more than just books. Let’s get personal and learn more about one another! So, Let’s Talk! (Source: Smash Attack Reads)
Do you hide your book purchases from your significant other/parents/children/pet/old lady down the street? Share some good smuggling stories! (Thank you, Kristin/My ParaHangover!)
My husband is surprisingly AWARE. I hate it. He notices everything. Most wives get mad when the husband doesn’t notice a new dress or haircut. I get mad, because my husband does. Now I have a job and make my own money, so I don’t have to necessarily account for my purchases. BUT we don’t have an unlimited cash flow, so I feel like I do need to account for things. And I can get a little out of control BOOK BUYING. When I buy books:
- They never come in the house in a bag (plus I hate plastic bags and usually tell them to keep it).
- I always peel off the price stickers. I get really angry when they don’t pull off cleanly. HULK!!!!
- I always have a least one book with me at all times. So I usually just carry them in the house like I always had them and maybe just couldn’t make my mind up before I left this morning. You know that attitude.
- I try to make a bee-line to my book shelf room and get rid of the evidence of my indulgence ASAP.
Luckily the hubs, doesn’t know a new book from an old book. My indiscretions are VAST. But he does notice that the shelves are getting fuller. TIME to DONATE.
