TBR

29!

See, you guys?  Do you see my issue here??  I may have one week were I read three books and don’t add any to my pile but you can bet your buttons that I will do the exact opposite the next week.

Part of the problem is that I have a very very very complicated rotation system for my TBR stack.  I am pursuing many different kinds of books and working on three authors and three lists.  Besides that, and this is the really sad book, I decided last year to read one of my own books very other book.  So, it went stack-my book-stack-my book.  Then I decided that I needed to work on getting through some series so it went stack-series-mine-stack-series-mine.  And now, just this week, I have decided to read alll of the V.C. Andrews books.  So, I now have stack-mine-series-VC.  I’m just so screwed.  And what I really, really want to do is check off some books on my giant list so I’ve been ordering audios to cover those.

I definitely feel like I should have made it through more than one book this week but, in all fairness, I got really involved with Weird Michigan.  I mean, I had a Google search pulled up for most of my reading.  I like weird stuff and I am home state proud for sure.

I made an interesting observation to myself yesterday.  I feel like I’ve been really pushing myself with my reading this year.  I’ve been trying new things and catching up and really enjoying it.  You know what?  I feel smarter than I have felt in a long time.  I’ve discovered a world of book nerds and I feel so good about that.  I’m not a freak after all!  It’s amazing what reading can do for you.  It’s truly amazing.
