I get a lot of people going “How can you afford to buy so many books? Aren’t you just out of school?” Here’s the thing: My books have been amassed over a long, reckless career as a reader, many of them for little money from used bookstores, garage sales, birthdays, you name it. But more importantly, books keep me from indulging some of my more expensive habits. A night in with a book doesn’t cost anything. A night out at the bar costs a lot (Oh hi, Visa bill from Halloween). I have terrible wanderlust. I love to travel. But I can’t afford to drop $1,300 on plane tickets and go skipping off to Prague. So I read. I travel vicariously, and that keeps me content, for a while. So, slow your roll, haters and passers of judgment. How I spend my money is my business, and I choose to spend it on books.
Hey, I've been reading your fics and they're awesome! Please... Can you do one in which Hermione comes home from Hogwarts and Ron is living in Grimmauld Place with Harry, but Harry is with the Aurors... so, Ron is most of the time helping George and alone at home, everyone oblivious of Ron's depressing situation (Fred, nightmares, Malfoy Manor, locket)... Hermione discovers he hasn't been taking care of himself (smoking, thinner)? Thank you very much!!
