Finally! Finally! It’s here, you guys! My birthday present finally came! It came last Tuesday and it was in a box in a box in a box. I haven’t made space on my shelf yet but I have read the first book in the Penguin Black Classics set. I’m excited by how my horizons are broadened just by this one gift. Again, and I can’t say it enough, I have the best hubby ever.
You may have noticed that I got like a million books this last week. It couldn’t be helped. I was in the proximity of used books and ran across a couple of things I wanted on Tuesday, in spite of the fact that there were 80 books waiting on my porch for me. Then I took advantage of my last day of free book sale books on Wednesday when someone happened to donate a box of rock’n’roll books. Who can resist Zeppelin? Not me.
I know exactly why I’ve been buying so many books. One year we had a really bad winter and for some reason I got it into my head that I would run out of books if I got snowed in. It was the first time that I had a toppling pile of books checked out from the library. I realized what I did and made it into a joke, assuring people that I needed all of those books in case I got snowed in even in August. Ha ha.
But right now I feel like I’m entering into that dangerous territory. What if… What if… What if I run out of books! Ahhhh! The horror story of my life. Of course I won’t run out of books. You know, I start at my new library next week and I still have cards to three more plus like thousands that I own. It’s kind of like that theory I read about how you should fill your cupboards with food you like to lose weight because it makes you feel secure.
Sure. It’s just like that.
