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.
