However, as there are in most charity shops, there is a discounted/second hand book section. Which, to someone who is as obsessed with books as I am (all reading is good book research right?) this can prove a little bit of a problem for the purse strings. When you see a book that you've been meaning to read for ages, sitting at just a pound on the shelf next to you, (yes, to add to my problems the book shelf is right next to the till where I can always see it!), it's incredibly hard to resist.
Sometimes I'm strong enough to ignore the allure of the bookshelf, and then (more commonly) I have moments of weakness and come out of volunteering with a couple of books stashed away in my backpack, my purse a little lighter, and on the way to my bed for an evening of tea and stories.
It has gotten to the point now that whenever they get a new bunch of books in, Hannah (yep, the manager and I share the same name, but that's another story!), sets a couple aside she thinks I'll like so that I can get first dibs! Which is brilliant, because I get more books, but at the same time it isn't great because more books means less money and more distractions from things I should be doing, like lab reports and writing my own novel.
So if anyone has any idea as so how to solve my little space problem, please let me know! Any ingenious storage solutions that don't cost too much? After all, the student purse strings are often drawn tight!
That's all from me this time. I hope you all have a fantastic day! Bye! :)
