I'm not so sure it's a good idea........



for me to have a big purse!! I was looking for money this morning to pay for a coffee and I had to take out this








Then this one








Then this one







Then this one








Then this one







Seriously - what kind of insanity causes a person to walk around with FIVE books in their purse???? And do you know how long it took me to find change??? Because of course I had all the other kinds of stuff one carries around in a purse!!

Thank goodness the six pens are much lighter and less cumbersome

OH MY GOD, you need a Kindle! I carry 210 with me and no one knows (most of all my previously sore shoulder) :)

LOL! That is awesomeness! Definitely one of those "you know you're a book lover if..." type things, right? I would love to do that. No matter how big my bag is, I can never put more than two books or so in it due to all my other junk taking up all the space. eReaders with their thousands of books carrying capability are starting to look more appealing. :D

OMG you do have more than one purse, don't you? Otherwise you have to be seriously deprived.
There's a nifty thing called Purse Brite that has lots of little pockets for your doodads and means you can switch purses even easier.

Lynne: *laughing* I usually get by with two - a dark winter purse and a light summer purse. I'm not at all a purse/shoes kind of girl. I usually only switch when I manage to break the straps. As it is when I switch from summer to winter, I manage to forget something - often my work badge to get into the building I work at. So *g* I keep it simple.

Anna: I've got all kinds of other stuff in it too. But the books are the easiest to pull out when searching for something at the bottom.

Anonymous: I have been SO tempted to get some kind of electronic book reader to make things easier. But I'm afraid of small electronic devices - like my cell phone and M3P player.

Oh my! That was me a month ago!! Now I've got a Nook and no sore back... of course, i still can't find anything in there...

Lol! 5 books?! Wow! Are you reading all the books or are they there just in case you finish one book and need another one immediately?

I usually carry only two books with me. Any more than 2 books and they might get scratched or bented by the other items in my purse. I like to keep my books as new as possible, lol!

LOL

I'm the kind of person who can only read one book at a time, so that one book is what goes in my purse.

But I still got lots of other junk in there too.

Hahaha - I love this! I carry a paperback and a kindle with me wherever I go. Before the kindle I'd carry two books in case I finished the first before I got home!

i'm a big bag girl too, I had to take out my ereader, my camera, my paperback and my notebook the other day looking for my wallet. I have 45 books in my ereader so why am i still carrying a paperback? Because i love them.

orannia said...

LOL! Brilliant. But...you never know what you may feel like reading, right? *grin*

I've done that! I try to make sure I keep only one in there but it's difficult to decide which to choose when you're between books. At least you'll never be without a book!

nath said...

LOL, it's the same with me. I'm always looking for my wallet or keys or cell phone in my purse ^_^;

nath said...

But hey, at least, you got a great selection of books :D
