I have another birthday looming in a few weeks – or is it a couple? Well, already I’m being asked, “what would you like for your birthday, Mum?” I think I heard my daughter sigh at the other end of the phone when I promptly said, “a voucher for buying books.”
There are just so many wonderful books I’d love to buy, especially Christian novels which are not in our local library. Then of course, being a hoarder I love to keep books but our bookshelves are already overflowing – out to the garage actually! I checked out our last credit card statement and was a bit ashamed at how many times I’d put it up that month from my visit to my favourite bookshop. In fact, I’d looked at it only a day or so before our daughter rang and hence my prompt birthday wish.
