Heh...heh. Well, there's always the fact that I work a couple of jobs, so I don't nearly have enough time to read in my day! This, despite carrying books with me when I go to my jobs so I can read during breaks, lunches, etc. I also have about 5 or 6 books all around my house, in various rooms, near the chairs I sit in when I'm in that room. That way, where-ever I am, there's a book calling to me to sit down and read!
And there's the matter of shelf space. When husband and I moved in together many moons ago, he started with grumbling about how many books I had that he had to help carry to move me. I patiently explained that when you're involved with an English major, that's to be expected. Every time we moved, he made me give away more books. But he was always baffled that I'd give bags and boxes of them away to the various book sales, like the Spring AAUW sale, or the one held by our local library in the fall...then the shelves would still be groaning under the weight. See he always forgets that if I know about the sale, I'm gonna sneak in there just to have a peak...
And don't suggest I get an e-reader, because I own a Kindle that's loaded with books I win at various blogs, or buy to read on vacation. Otherwise we'd have to build an addition to the house for my TBR pile!
Any kindred souls out there?
