"Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. ~ Novelist Jeanette Winterson

November & December Book Haul

For the past few months I haven't purchased that many books!This comes as a huge surprise even for me! But that does not mean I have not been reading! I have been reading a lot and that habit is catching on to my 8 year old who now loves sitting in our cozy corner with a Secret Seven  / Famous Five book!

In the past 2 months, these are the books that came to live with us...

This is the book that I won through Better Butter Instagram giveaway and it arrived right in time for my birthday!




These two are through the Goodreads giveaway.



The below two came in for review...




Last but not the least, these books came through a gift coupon! Oh how I enjoyed shopping these.Along with these 4 the kids too got some book as a part of the deal.



That's all for this month..

Meet you all next year!!
