Books, glorious books!

Well, the library book sale was a miss. Can you believe I didn’t buy any books?!? I usually go the first or second day they are open but I was feeling depressed a week or two ago. So, looks like I missed out.

I went into the library afterwards to check out a book to read but that wasn’t satisfying because I wanted a dopamine hit from buying a book that is actually mine to add to myself. So I went to an expensive chain bookstore and bought the following after wandering around for an hour:

Most of the books I wanted were $30 each and I determined I didn’t want them that much. So this is what I ended up with. Not too bad.

I’m also reading a Colleen Hoover novel at the moment for my book club. Her books were displayed all around the bookstore. (As an aside autocorrect had “books” as “boobs” which in this context is hilarious) She’s very popular right now. I can see why, this current book is very easy to read. I’ve just flown through it. Not high literature to be sure, and I’m likely to give the book away when I’m done, but it’s kept my attention and often that’s hard to do.

I won’t be making it to my bookclub though. My friend wants to hang out. I miss her so much, and she seems to always only invite me when there are a bunch of other people around. I gotta accept that could happen to me again. I should prepare for that.

You might say, Why don’t you just talk to her about it, Quixie? Well, sometimes you can just read people. And she hasn’t really wanted to be around me, just the two of us. I can tell. Or maybe my self-esteem is just really low. I don’t know.

I’m going to go back to reading the Colleen Hoover novel (this is one of those that I’ll probably finish in a day) and get ready for work tomorrow. Hope you had a good day.

About Quixie

Hi! I go by "Quixie." Quixie is a shortened version of "quixotic," which means: "exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical." It's how I described my evangelical Christian faith when I started blogging 7 years ago. Now I'm an agnostic atheist who is trying to find a balance between idealism and reality. I write about my mental health journey with bipolar disorder, my loss of faith (deconversion), parenting teens, reading, exercise/health, work-life, and my marriage separation/divorce.
