Books, Books Everywhere!!
Over this past 4th of July holiday weekend I decided I was going to make a list of the books on my bookshelves (3 huge bookshelves that is). All of the books on there are books I haven't read yet. I have another bookshelf that has the books I've read already. I completed the list and I couldn't believe there were 427 books on there!! Alot of these books I get from Paperbackswap.com so I have not purchased them. Some were given to me after the reader was done with them. A few I have bought at the library. But of course, some of those books I have purchased! I am going to make a point to read some of these books by the end of the year! Hopefully I'll have read atleast 20 or more. Alot of them are quick cozy mysteries, but about half are novels that will take a little more time. I was shocked that John said, "I thought you had more than that!" Wasn't that a pleasant surprise! I did find one book that I had a duplicate of, so off to the paperbackswap list it went. I could have a really bad vice other than books (and my other love is plants!). The main reason for doing this project wasn't because I'm OCD or anything like that but the truth is sometimes I forget what I have on the shelves and I don't want to duplicate. I was really glad I was able to get this project done because it will be really helpful in the future!
Everyone have a lovely day!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
