I am a book junkie.  I buy more books than fit in my house – but that doesn’t stop me from buying more.  All of my bookshelves are full, and I have stacked books beside the full bookshelves.  I can’t help myself, if there is a book sale, I will go.  If I can find the money, I will buy books.  If I have to choose between books and something else important, 90% of the time I will choose books.

Like most book lovers, I am prepared to read at any time.  I have them with me all the time – in the car, my purse, my backpack, my shelves, next to the bed, next to the couch, and of course in the “water closet”.  I realized I had a book collecting/hoarding problem when I came home one day carrying a bag of books, and my husband looked at me like I was a just-out-of-rehab-recovering-alcoholic carrying around a 40 oz.

Sometimes I spend so much time reading that I forget to review the books I’ve read.  I’m trying to do better.  So, this blog focuses on books, whether it’s books I’ve read, books I’ve bought, quotes about books and reading, or other book related news.

I hope to connect with other book lovers, so if you get a chance, follow me, and join the fun!

  1. I love your bookshelf banner!
    Do you take review requests from authors (just to pile the shelf higher)?

  2. Hello, fellow book addict. I had to rediscover the library so that my children would not be crushed under a falling pile of books. I love them so…the children too, though the books never demand that I make them a snack or complain about my dinners.

    • Did I mention that my daughter has threatened to turn me in to the TV Show, Hoarders, because of my book collection? *sigh* Books are amazingly low maintenance!

      Thanks for stopping by!
