Life Update: Moving Out, Meeting Friends and New Books

I moved out. I moved out of my house and out of my Kibbutz for the first time in my life, and I have to be honest, after my cat, the hardest goodbye was to my books (sorry mom and dad). 

Leaving behind over 200 books, I packed eight into my backpack, put some clothes in it too, and left home. 

On August 27 I got to the Green Village – a boarding school/day school/anything you can think about. I don’t have many friends here, so my mom’s former coworker suggested her family adopt me. I was a bit confused when my real mom announced I have a new sister, but whatever. 

So Monday evening I went to visit them for the first time. They were super nice and made me feel like I really am from the family. And the best part is- they are all readers. Both my new sisters were glad to lend me some of their books to make me feel more at home.

Enough babbling. Here are the books they lent me:

1. The F*** It List by Julie Halpern 

2. Audry, Wait! By Robin Benway 

3. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

4. The Other Side of the Island by Allegra Goodman

5. Sipu (Unfinished Story) by Yuval Elbashan

6. Zuto: The Adventures of a Computer Virus by Udi Aharoni

So I wanna say thank you to the family that so kindly adopted me, and to my sisters for lending me all these books. I truly love you. 

And I’m gonna quickly add in the three books I bought myself: 

And.. that’s it!

Wales Book Haul! (Also, books I’m taking with me when I leave home)

Here’s the deal: books in Wales are freaking cheap. Like, a book in Israel can cost between 80-90 shekels, while a book in Wales cost me about 40 to 50 shekels. That’s a big difference. 

So of course I had to buy a ton of books. 

So these are all the books I got in my nine days in Wales and London. I was so happy with all the cute bookstores in Wales because in Israel we only have two kinds of bookstores.
