Book Pile

I have too many books to read right now. I know, I know. How can there be too many?

I visited my local Christian bookstore yesterday for a CD. (Go Michelle Tumes--great work on your self-titled latest release!) But while I was there, I had to BROWSE the bargain book section. So, there I am glancing through, thinking fiction, when suddenly some non-fiction catches my eye. A book about the character of God and one about the greatest song in all of Scripture. Gotta have 'em. 60% off, oooh yum! Then, I noticed novels by authors I've not read recently. I start stacking books in my arms. Here's a novel, there's a novel. Fun!

Then, this morning some books I've been waiting for in our local library system have come in and are waiting for me to come claim them. Suddenly, it's like book heaven around here.

But I can't forget all the writing I need to be doing, or the critiquing I'm doing for a fellow writer. Have to keep those priorities in order.

Okay, I gotta run. As soon as I finish my work, I get to read!

Annette,

I was laughing as I read your shopping trip story. It's so true that the books MUST come home with you...and at 60% off they're practically free. I mean really.

I finally got 3 books read and then what happens, more come in the mail! Isn't it great? Just call it research; the fact that it's fun is neither here nor there. Happy reading!
