New for old is a catchphrase from Aladdin of course but is this something that is appropriate for book lovers?
After all I love old books.
I love new books.
I just love books!
I think it is good to have a balance of old favourites. These are my comfort reads when I need that.
I also like to read new books, especially from contemporary writers. It is good to know what is being put out there now.
One handy side benefit to making writer friends is this does help ensure you do get plenty of contemporary reading in.
I take great pleasure from the fact I have shelves which are packed full of fab books written by people I’ve come to know and count as friends. I always look forward to adding to my shelves in that regard.
I can’t wait to get back to book events so I can pick up those books signed by said friends in person.
Naturally I’m looking forward to being able to hold some book events of my own in due course.
