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.

I get Book Bubs email for discounted Kindle books and bought 3 today.

Here's the link to the most recent. Most are limited time deals.

I like to write as a hobby. I wanted that Agatha Christie book forever, finally got a good deal.

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'm not making excuses and I don't have a problem... a717c58e921be5ef5f6774c8dc5b9731.jpg

Just ordered Midnight Sun, the alibi girl, little white lies and the mothers. I need to stop buying books when I have lots of books that I still need to read.

And he was all "Maybe if you like yourself more, others will like you too"
Well who needs that?
