Are You A Book Addict?

Do you think you might be a book addict?  Below are some of the questions you might ask yourself:

  1. Can you pass a book store and not stop for a quick browse? (No)
  2. Can you get out of the above mentioned book store without buying at least one book? (No)
  3. Does Amazon send you a Christmas present every year along with a fully cooked turkey dinner for you and your family? (No, but they should).
  4. Is the floor of your house beginning to sag under the weight of all those fabulous coffee table books? Oh oh.

There is nothing like the feel of a real book and real paper. I have about 50 books loaded into my iPod (for emergency situations), but I prefer to curl up, book in hand, and read the old fashioned way.  I keep my favorite books - I often read them over again.

I’ll soon be taking some vacation and plan to catch up on my reading. I have a stack of books that I’m dying to get at. Here is part of the selection I have on hand:

I’m definitely a book addict but I guess there are worse addictions. I can hardly wait to open to the title page of a new book and travel to wherever the author wants to take me. My only problem now is, which book first?

PS  If you've read any good books lately that you can recommend, please leave a note in the comment box or send me an email.  I'll make a list to share.  Thanks! 

Happy reading.

    I loved reading your blog here, as I am a hopeless book addict myself. I lose myself in bookstores for hours on end, keep a variety of book lists for myself, read endlessly, stare at my bookshelves with love, and on and on. I recently joined, which is just an online bookshelf community basically. You list the books you've read, etc. You might get a kick out of it too. - Beth

  2. Thank you for the suggestion Beth. I joined and love it! What a great idea.

  3. Susan, I'm so honored to see my book on your list! Hope it makes you shriek with laughter, cry your eyes out, and do something you probably hadn't oughtta do.
