So, here's the anatomy of my book hoarding (from the bottom):
- 2 books I've read that I'm not ready to put into the family library (for no real reason, but I tell myself that I may want to go re-read something I've dog-eared - but I rarely ever do).
- Then there is the "pick up reading" book (Lonely Planet's Ethiopia Travel Guide).
- Then two books that I plan to read (I usually order several books at a time to save on shipping)
- Then the book I am currently reading.
This is how it all begins. It's clear to me now. I am determined not to go back to here:
That is a bad, bad place. I have found the light (and the top of my nightstand) and I won't go back to living in darkness! Books = library, not nightstands. Yes, I can do it! I'm the man! I'm lovin' it! Is it in you? Just do it! (that was for you Dirt) :-)
