My Dear, Dear, sweet friends, PLEASE stop giving me fabulous books to read! Dear, writing community, will I ever catch up? Dear Self, Please, Please Stop buying books!! 🙂
I have a terrible addiction. I know I share this addiction with many of you. When I’m in the grocery store, I have to be sure to NOT go down the aisle were the magazines and books are at. I tell myself, “I’ll just look at the covers and see what’s new.” Female authors are really hot right now (yay us!) and I like to see what’s hot, what’s new, etc. I love looking at the cover art. After all, some day I will have a book in print.
LIES! All lies! I usually end up with a new book in my cart.
The picture above is my night stand. Yes, I see the dust. The stack of books is my current “To Be Read” pile. There are more on the book shelf. Big ‘ole Hard Backs that are those “some day” books. Some day when I get around to it. You know… But these are the ones I’m just itching to read! …sigh.
The order of these books keep shifting too. When I get a new book, it goes into the stack according to how (a) anxious I am to read it or (b) how important it is in my life right now to read it.
Sometimes I feel like this guy. When there’s finally enough time, I’ll have broken the last pair of glasses in the world! 🙂
Do you have a To Be Read pile?
