Y’all I got some booooooooks!!! I got a sweet little button and a sticker but I got some books and let me tell you about that sweet little number on the bottom right.
I’ve already read it. Hella times, in fact. I fucking love that book. It was my introduction to Lois McMaster Bujold and everyone should read her because she is the literal best.
And this book I’ve already read? I love it the best of these. Because I gave up a lot this year. I gave up on my marriage, my house, my lifestyle. And I had to give up a lot of books when I moved from a four bedroom house into a 500 square foot “junior 1 bed-room” which is real estate speak for half a step above a studio. So I looked at my books and gave away everything that I could replace. That included my copies of most Bujold.
But now my life is full and full of space. The apartment I thought would feel oppressively small feels so big. When I started making room in my life and home for me, suddenly there was space everywhere for the things I love. And this book that I love, that brought me to an author I adore, sent to me by the lovely Bothari43 (who, by their username I already know is kin), is a sign and signifier that it is time to fill my space with the things that fill my heart.
It’s not going on my bookcase, it’s going on my altar.
