If there’s one place that represents the past three years at my current job, that place is Borders Bookstore. I go there at least once a week on my lunch break, sometimes more. I love seeing what new books have come in, what books I need to buy & what other things I can add to my wishlist.
This morning the sad news came: Borders is shutting down. It’s quite funny the timing of it all. Borders is shutting down the same month I finish up at my current job after three years and it’s like that chapter of my life is coming to an end. I didn’t even wait until my lunch break to go today, I rushed out at 10 am (the good thing about work being so flexible). I picked up a few things, no doubt I will definitely be back again to get a few more things.
I picked up two notebooks and a book to read. I really couldn’t help myself when I saw this New York notebook! What perfect motivation for me to get saving! I haven’t read a book since the beginning of the year because I’ve been so busy with uni but it’s finally time to start reading for pleasure!
“What makes us tick?” sounds really interesting as it goes onto explain our desires to believe in something, to connect, to be useful, to belong, for more, for control and for love. Those chapters pretty much sum up my life at the moment so I’ll let you know how the book goes!
