Staging an Intervention

My sweet Bear has put his foot down. He has ordered me to not borrow anymore books from the library. In addition, I can't buy any more new ones.

It seems I have an addiction. An addiction to books. My nightstand is filled with books in the cabinet and overflowing with books on top. Several of the books, Bear & Lamb are waiting for me to read so we can talk about them. I have so many, I think it would take me two years or more to read them all.

Yet, even though I own all these books, I still borrow from the library. I *have* to read those books first so that others can read them. And so that I don't have to write my paycheck over to them for fines.

It's a vicious cycle. A cycle that Bear intends to stop. Right.Now.

Let's hope the withdrawal isn't too painful for me.

Ok...that IS bad when Bear has said enough! (But I SO know what you mean...our "game" room is nothing but piles of books!)

Focus on the positive: now you'll have time to read all the ones that you have at home but haven't read! I do understand the addiction, though. I'm always wanting to buy more books. My family just rolls their eyes at me. It's kind of funny.

I remember when you wouldn't let me check out any books from the library BECAUSE I had so many unread books on my shelf ;)

This is the very first time I've been glad we don't live close to each other. Bear would have a fit at my house!

Books are a great addiction, if you have to have one, right? If it weren't for Goodreads, I'd never be able to keep up with what I want to read! And I have a whole book shelf full of books just waiting to be read. TGI Summer!

Come by my blog and see what I have for you.

Huh. Just reading that caused my heart to beat erratically. And I'm scared. I've gathered my books around to hold me...

Reading this again makes me miss Anne George even more! Love those Southern Sisters books!
