I am still working on cleaning out the clutter as per usual over here. Today I started on my bookshelves…
If you haven’t already guessed…I love to read and I have for as long as I can remember….. I was always the kid who looked longingly at the back of her closet hoping for a portal that the wardrobe produced. Then I grew up and wanted the stones from Craig Na Dun so I could find my own Jamie…in a time of indoor plumbing..let’s be real.
I have always been a crazy reader from Nancy Drew to Stephen King depending on my age. I love how I can escape into another world so easily, it’s part of the magic of reading. When my kids were little I would grab a book and go sit outside and they would completely overreact ” we’re going to starve she has a book!” Geez….I have no idea where they get that from. 🙂 .
I am pretty sure that I found this handy dandy little gadget on a post from K. at http://purecomplex.com/ and I love it. I haven’t been very diligent in using it until today. I have made it through one of my book shelves, imprinting the tried and true books. One of the ladies from book club wants to have a book swap and I have a very nice stack to swap. This little tool in theory may be helpful in the future from buying books on a whim. I have to know that I will keep it and reread it before it warrants that stamp.
Is it sad that as I was going through the shelves and I would pick up a book, run my hand over the cover and say “I think that I need to read you again.”?
Work was work and it was crazy and it was busy, the doctor was over booked and I didn’t get home until after six and yet…..still an improvement over my last job.
I had fun today regardless… I am still learning new things and I am making new connections…with fellow readers…hello jackpot!
Maybe I like books too much….maybe it is part of who I am? My day consisted of work with many different conversations about books, with new people in my circle that like to read……it was a good day. 🙂 …..Zia
