Bookish Problem #143

Happy Wednesday!

Something happened Monday. Something rather confusing and a bit scary.

Since I´m currently suffering from a cold I can´t really be bothered to read or do some much-needed book shopping ( as if I hadn´t already done that a few days ago * sigh * )

So, I used my Monday to sort out my bookshelves and the treasures I found there….you won´t believe it.

At first, I stumbled upon a book I absolutely love. `Easy` by author Tammara Webber. It´s an older book but still…. It´s a Young Adult classic I absolutely adore.

After swooning over that book I saw the same book in the same row, just a few paperbacks away.

Confusing? You bet!

I thought I had finally lost my marbles. I mean- having the flu can cause you to see double. I thought I was seeing double. But then I noticed the differences in the books.

The covers…. they were slightly different. Same book only one with the original cover and the other one with an updated image.

Seriously? I had the same book twice on my bookshelf. How in all that´s pink and fluffy was that even possible? I don´t buy double paperbacks. Not even if I love a book as much as I love `Easy`.

Is this what it´s like when you get old? You become so forgetful and buy stuff double? If that´s case then I´ll stop right here and focus on ebooks only.

This has never happened to me before!

Scary is- I have no clue why I have the same book twice. I remember buying the first paperback. But the second copy? When did that happen? WHEN?!

It´s not signed by the author, so I didn´t get it from a book signing event. The only logical explanation I can come up with is that I lend my original copy to a friend and never got it back so I bought another copy. Since I don´t lend books anymore ( I´m a burnt child ) that can´t be the case, either. This leads me to believe that I´ve finally lost it ( and by “it” I mean my  wits).

Who know´s what´ll happen next. All I know is that I´m not prepared for more surprises like this.
