I miss my books

Have you ever regretted something you’ve done?

Of course, who hasn’t.

Last year, I gave away two bags full of books to the neighbourhood library. I had a good collection of Sydney Sheldon and Jeffrey Archer books. And some desi authors. Well almost all of them were Archer.

I now regret it. I don’t regret the giveaway part. I just miss reading the physical books. I’m a migration reader – who’s moving from hardcopy book to eBook. However, I’ve totally strained my eyes. Ten hours of work in front of computer, followed by hours of typing and editing of my own writing, followed by checking out social media (Goodreads, and my blog), followed by reading a book to sleep. Can you see why my eyes are tired?

I have a tiny apartment, and books would eat most of the space if start buying now. I am in a catch 22 situation.

Still, I miss my books.
