About This Blog

Don't get me wrong. It's not that I'm not on board with the whole ebook thing. I enjoy books in all their formats. But there is nothing quite like a bookstore with its neatly arranged shelves of books and artfully created displays of new arrivals, best sellers, and suggested reading. I especially enjoy discovering small, independent bookstores and have made it my mission to visit and report back on as many of these gems as I can. That is my focus, but there is really nothing that is off limits as long as it is about books or reading. Hope you enjoy my blog and come back often.

So many books, so little time

Part of my current to-read pile
Do you feel, like I do, that there are just too many books that you want to read and not enough time to read them all? Does your pile of to-read books never seem to get smaller? Does it feel like you add more books to the pile than you take away? Do you find yourself thinking that you'll read those books when you're on vacation, or winter will be the perfect time to catch up, or summer will be the perfect time to catch up, or you'll make headway during spring break? Do you have a hard time walking into a bookstore and leaving empty handed in spite of the already out-of-control size of your pile? Do you have some books that have been in the pile for years? Well, you're not alone. Perhaps this humorous video clip will help you feel better, or at least make you chuckle.

So many books . . .

It's okay. Keep reading. Don't give up on your pile!

There needs to be an agree button...it's worse when you JUST started working at a library and shelve the books....your "to-read list" gets SUPER long. ~Samantha

Agreed, Samantha. Working in a library definitely expanded my to-read list.
