U is for Used Books: A-to-Z Challenge

I am a bookaholic, though I don’t have book hallways and they are not going to fall over and smother me.  I just enjoy having a library, reading, researching, and sharing books.  I love the feel of a book in my hand and while I am a geek don’t fancy reading electronically, though I can see the benefit of taking along one slim device on vacation.

I’ve always been a used book buyer.  Starting with the Bodhi Tree in Lalaland, I went first to the used sections to find things no one even knew existed!  I cannot even believe they are not longer there — they were a part of my spiritual development!

I’ve been changing my ways lately by selling books I don’t read anymore and so, passing them along.  Locally we have Powell’s Book, many floors of books, and they also sell online.  I like supporting a super local store, and someday I hope one of my books is sold at Powell’s!  In honor of Earth day they put these cool stickers out, and so, I BUY-SHARE-READ-LOVE Used Books!10269156_10152337516267552_4847052300805690549_o
