Thank goodness for friends

Remember my temptation issues, wanting to buy the third and well yes the fourth as well, in the Twilight series but not being able to partly because finances wouldn't stretch that far, not when they weren't essential and I already have so many other books to read, not to mention the use of two very good libraries.
So in the course of conversation I shared my dilemma with a friend at work and do you know what she did? She went out and bought book three and book four and gave them to me to read before she even read them. She said she knew I'd read them way quicker than her and she was going to buy them anyway. I feel totally blessed that someone would do that for me. I fully understand how precious books are and how hard it can be to lend a book out.
I read book three last night and thoroughly enjoyed every word. I am starting book four tonight.
So today I count a friend as a very special blessing.

That is true friendship!

(Have you ever bought a book for someone, wrapped it, then unwrapped it and read it, wrapped it back up and given it to the friend?)

What a good friend indeed! I think of you often bloggy friend b/c I remember your post on tempation ... I made me go and count all the books I have waiting to be read ... close to 50 (and that's just on one shelf!). I had 3 books in my hands today (used but still!) and I put them all back. Must.Read.What.I.Have.

What a lovely friend! But you know that what goes around comes around, so I'm sure you have done 'stuff' in the past which warrants that special kindness. x
