I’ve been wanting to read a graphic novel for quite some time, one of length and a stand alone that i can really get in to. On a recent trip to Waterstones, i found This One Summer, which looked absolutely adorable and something that i’d really want to read pretty quickly. Luckily, my friend bought it and lent it to me, win win for me!
I have been on a book buying ban along with my father for about eight months now. This ban means that I cannot buy books at all with my own money (I can accept gifts or use gift vouchers to buy books) and if I was to buy a book I’d have to buy one for my father too. So far this has been a pretty successful deal as us tight arses don’t want to spend money buying books for each other! However as August brought a family holiday and the end of summer, the ban had been lifted and we were free to buy books until our hearts were content – or wallets were empty!
