Ooops, I did it again…

I have a small book problem. Ok, I lied. It is a HUGE book problem.  It has many facets, too.  So many, in fact, that they need a list:

  • I want to read just about everything!
  • I have serious vampire and zombie issues. I have to read them all!
  • I check out WAY too many books at the library. It is like how people must feel when they walk past a pet store. I just can’t leave them there, they need a good home!
  • I keep buying more books. I can’t help it. Sometimes the wait lists at the library are so long and I want it now (Veruca Salt, anyone!?).
  • I say I’m going to read this or than next, but then something just jumps out at me and I pick it up. Then that’s it…I’m reading it.
  • Being ADHD (really, like clinically, not like in the kidding kind of way) does not help this issue. I am currently listening to something in the car, have a book on my desk at work, have a book upstairs, and a book downstairs. I’m getting an iPad this weekend (YAY!) and I just know I’ll put a few books on that!

So, what’s the bottom line here? Why the rant?

I need to fess up:

I went to order one book today and got three (Oops, sorry Schmoopy! Didn’t mean to!). It is just so easy to click, add to cart, and check out! Darn internet!

I am trying to return some library books, but they look at me all cute and book-like, with their shiny covers and cute spines…I just can’t decide which ones to return without reading first. I know that I can check them out again, put them on a special list, whatever, but (go ahead and laugh) I don’t want them to feel bad. UGH!

Whew, I feel better now. I probably won’t change, but isn’t the first step in solving a problem admitting you have one?!

Did I mention that I love books? Well, I do!

Friday Reads

My #fridayreads book is Carrie Ryan’s third book in the Forest of Hands and Teeth series: The Dark and Hollow Places.

I am loving it! The second book, The Dead-Tossed Waves, is my favorite so far. I swear I read somewhere that there was going to be a book about the Sisterhood, but I think I made that up. Even so, I’m loving The Dark and Hollow Places just as it is.  I was twelfth in line for the book at the library and I just couldn’t wait that long, so I bought it on Monday. I thought I’d finish it by now, but I had a crazy week. I’ve been looking forward to the weekend so that I could become totally immersed in the book.

Yay for a reading weekend! Oh wait, I have tons of other stuff to do, too. But, I will totally stake out some sacred time for reading!
