I’m addicted to things I don’t want to give up:
Luckily, these addictions are not terribly harmful, unless I indulge too frequently. I’m doing okay on the coffee and chocolate, but the book collection is growing out of control (again).
I’ll take this weekend as an example. In addition to the three bookscases stuffed full of books I haven’t read, and two stacks on top of one bookcase, and the writing books I have upstairs in my office (many unread), I also have 22 TBR books stacked on the table by my favorite reading chair.
So what did I do Friday night at the Northern Colorado Writers Wine and Words fundraiser? I bought two more books:
1. Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi
2. The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman
And Saturday? I attended Cricket McRae‘s book signing and cheese tasting and bought her new release, Something Borrowed, Something Bleu.
And Sunday? I returned The Man in the High Castle to the library, then checked out:
1. Thrillers: 100 Must Reads edited by David Morrell & Hank Wagner
2. Exile by Richard North Patterson
even though I already have a library book in my stack: The Book of Spies by Gayle Lynds.
See what I mean? I must regain control…soon.
