    I have read Crazy Rich Asians and China Rich Girlfriend so many times. It's hilarious! The third book is out in a couple of weeks. I loved Burial Rites and Walking on Trampolines.

    I loved 'The Rosie Project' too. The second book 'The Rosie Effect' is great too. I've just finished 'The Art of Racing in the Rain'-a really good read written from the dogs perspective!

    @BH-KatiesMum Dh bought me a kindle because he said we couldn't fit any more bookshelves lol. I do love it especially for holidays because I used to have to lug 10-15 books with me. But it's not the same as holding a book. I have a 'library' one room with all walls covered in floor to ceiling bookshelves, then more bookshelves scattered throughout the house. I am a prolific reader and have been since the moment I could read. I do not know how people survive without a book in their hand!

    Oh @binnielici I have 'library' envy, I love my huge book shelf in the front room but would love a dedicated room. I have close family members who swear by using kindles but agree there is nothing like holding a book, I don't think I could adjust to a kindle I am too traditional.

    The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins. Loved the way it was written and kept me guessing until the end. Very enjoyable read!

    This is me! Except, we can't actually risk buying new shelves in case we move somewhere and can't fit them all. It's been a tight squeeze for the last 3 houses. And we still want to move back closer to "home".

    Also have library envy. I have dreams! I know exactly what my imaginary library looks like and I will get it one day! Might have to be after the kids move out and I can use one of their rooms, but one day I will have my library.

    I didn't know there was a second, will be popping into my local bookshop to get that. I read the art of racing in the rain about a month ago.. so so good! I actually cried a few times throughout that book.

    With regards to Kindle's, my mil got me one as she knows I love to read, have never used it. I love buying books, I love the feel of books, the smell of them, collecting them and just everything about them.
