I’m a book lover. There are books all over the house, some old, some new: in the living room, in my room, in the bedroom, on the landing, in the kitchen, in the attic, in the bathroom, in the tv-room …
This has to stop, because there isn’t any room for more books. Nontheless, it took me a while to get used to the idea of holding an e-reader instead of a real book in my hands. But then, my husband’s Christmas present this year was an e-reader. I like it a lot. Now I can buy any book and don’t have to pay for shipping, which is especially great as I read a lot of books in English. If I wanted to order them second hand at Amazon, the postal fees were as expensive as the e-reader version. Furthermore, I don’t have to wait for it. Thirdly, ten books weight as much as one book. And last but not least, the e-reader has a red case. 🙂
However, there are a few books I bought a while ago, and will read enjoying the printed word the more. And there is one occasion too, when I just can’t take the e-reader with me: I like reading while taking a bath. So here you see my current bath read. I don’t mind at all if it gets wet.
I’m finishing today’s „A Favourite Thing Saturday“ post with my first book ever. I was very fortunate to have a mother, who loved books and found it worthwile to buy books not only for her but also for us children. The author of „Regula“ is a famous local writer, originally Italian. He was a primary school teacher and had a deep understanding of people’s feelings and actions. He wrote children’s books and fiction for adults, mostly about people from this county, but also the life story of his father (Der Scherenschleifer). I met Dino Larese twice, the first time when I was a child, the second time as an adult. When I read a story by him, I hear him reading it. 🙂
„Regula“ is the story of a little girl who loses her kitty and finds it again eventually.
Im linking with „A Fouvourite Thing Saturday“ at Claudia’s where you can find lots of people’s favourites.
