BBC Book List Meme

I am a book lover. Mike could attest that I'd rather spend my money on books than on shoes or bags. Yup he asked me to strike 'bag' out. Haha!
When I was given an option to have an attic built in our house, turning it into a library was the first thing that came to my mind. Who would've thought...I now have a library of my own! Sometimes, I just go upstairs and stare at my book collection. I love my books so much. Teehee. =)

A friend in facebook tagged me and asked me to answer this note. I have saved the file in my laptop but never managed to post it online ever. I was cleaning my computer desktop the other night and saw this among other un-posted notes.
