I live in a stone house (which is why it became so bad). Now I store books digitally. I used to have the most diverse ed book collection.

I snuck some out of the burn pile and took a major risk, because rare booooks.

If anyone knows any good beauty books I'd love to read them. I've been obssessed with one beauty book that helps you become perfect physically and mentally called vivilore but sadly I don't think you can find it anywhere. I got it from an antique shop for $40 because it's from 1920 which is why I love the beauty advice it gives, but you can probably find a pdf online.

 

Another one I more recently got that I'm almost as excited about is called The Model's Handbook by Kyle Roderick and it's got detailed pages on what diet is gonna help you most and how to maintain it and how to start a model career. It's from 1984 so it's kind of vintage.

 

Beauty books are just so helpful in getting you to live your best life and I wish they had more of them but that might be hard nowadays because of body positives and that but honestly I think they'll benefit so many girls.

One book that I read recently that I really enjoyed was The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E Harrow. Its not ED related in anyway, but it really sucked me in and prevented me from eating so I guess it worked in that sense.  One ed book I read recently was The Chic Diet by Kit Olsen (which you can find under the downloads sections). Its kind of a parodic take on tips and tricks of being obsessed with being skinny while looking like you aren't obsessed. Its pretty short but I had a few chuckles while reading it.

More Kindle ebooks for my collection.

"The Count...' was only 49 cents. Probably free elsewhere, but I didn't feel like looking further.
The "Cursive..." was a free short story.
I like Nora Roberts and this was only $2.99.

I see The Lightning Thief! I read the whole Percy Jackson & the Olympians series a year ago. It was a really fun escape from the doldrums of normal life, plus easy to read.

Unfortunately the Book Thief is at the bottom of my reading list  :(  I have so many books but I've only read about half of them, so I have to read all my old ones before I can start reading the new ones >.< I'm looking forward to this one though!

Darius the Great Deserves Better. I liked the first book so I thought I'd get the 2nd. It was a soft release so I got it before it's online release date by 11 days.

I just came across this in my Facebook feed for the Olympians. I haven't started it yet. Still not reading like I use to, since March. Trying to get back to it.

Bought more books . Got the sample of Plum Island and had to buy the full Kindle.
