Books I’d Buy

Booking Through Thursday Logo

Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.

Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?

(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)

I’ve always dreamed of owning a library one day.  I don’t think $500 would cover it, do you?  But it might buy me a very nice set of Tolkein.  I reread them about once a year, so I’d love a very nice set.  One with excellent maps!

Harry Potter would be nice.  Georgette Heyer would be great.  We buy many children’s books — for ourselves, not the kids!  I started this thinking that if I had that kind of money, I’d pay for expensive bindings of books I love, but I’m now thinking that it would be fun to do a search and find lots of LGBT/Lesbian novels and purchase them all.  That would feel extravagant and decadent and wonderful.  So maybe I’d do that instead.
