Books, Books Everywhere!!
Last night I was talking to John at dinner about all the books we have. We have 3 huge bookcases of books and we still don't have enough room for all of them. Alot of the books I have not read yet so I am the biggest culprit! I've got alot of historical fictions (which are usually large books) so they take up alot of room, I've got a gajillion cozies that need to be read and alot of fiction books tucked in here and there. I have gardening and decorating books still boxed up in the garage from when we moved in to the house we are renting in May. They will stay that way until we buy another house. I have a Color Nook that has alot of books on it and John has a Kindle that has alot of books on it. So I guess you get my drift when I titled this post books, books everywhere-we really do!
I have to make a better effort this year to read the books I already have. I tried this last year but failed horribly. As soon as I'm done with the books, I have been very good about putting them on paperbackswap so someone else can enjoy them. I also have been trying not to request anymore books unless they are on my wish list.
I have come to the conclusion that I could have a much worse vice than books and collecting books! I just need to read more, but my knitting has taken some of that time. I guess I will have to learn how to divide my time between my 2 vices!!
Do any of you have tons of books?
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!
