So, I’m a lover a books. Judge me.
My goal for the summer was to read. And read. And read. When I thought I wasn’t going to summer school and I’d have a lot of time on my hands, I visited thrift store after thrift store and stumbled upon so many books that I needed to add to my collection. I’ve found that I can never go into a thrift store without visiting the book section, especially when books are priced as low as $.10. Yes, you read that correctly.
While I know I won’t be able to complete my challenge with all that I have going on, I promised myself that I’d still find the time to read. Not only because reading is important and there’s so much knowledge on these bound pages, but simply because it’s what I enjoy doing. And I’m leaning towards making more time for things that I love to do without lettings things that I have to do prevent me from doing so.
While I love reading alone, typically at night, I’ve also discovered how stories have created a lot of friendships and connections for me. To be able to find someone who loves books as much as I do really makes me giddy. Like her. And this lady that introduced me to Book Gorilla. And her synopses and Read With Me series. And let’s not forgot, her virtual book club. Oh and this book club via Facebook.
A friend of mine came to visit and asked if I thought I had enough books. And honestly, I don’t.
I will never believe that I’ll have enough.
