Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue #1

Hey everyone~

So, I was watching this program on the telly, about brides looking for wedding dresses or something, which made me think of this old saying.

  2. Something new: Now, for this, you can cheat a bit. You can recommend a book you just bought, a newly published book, or a book that you have not bought yet but will buy soon
  3. Something borrowed: Again, this is self-explanatory. Recommend books that you’ve borrowed, either from a friend, or the library, or wherever
  4. Something blue: For this, you can be literal, and recommend any books with blue covers that you like. Doesn’t have to be on your shelf, as long as you like it, just rec it. Or, you can recommend books that makes you feel “blue” 🙂
