Is there a 12 step program available for people with an addiction to books? Bibliophile is about the closest thing that I can find to describe someone who loves books . That does not even describe how I feel about books most days.
As I was cleaning in preparation for company later in the week I made a shocking discovery. I have a lot of books.
The coffee table stash is a reminder of just how many books are piling up around my house. This stash includes books I have borrowed from the Connestee Library as well as a few that I have bought or were given to me.
The nightstand stash shows even more books. On the bottom is my devotional and Bible stash that changes out over time. The middle shelf houses a bunch of books that I won in giveaways or bought in various places. The top shelf includes books that I am currently reading or have recently finished.
Of course I have other spots in the house with book stashes. There are several Longaberger baskets that are overflowing with books and my bookshelves both upstairs and downstairs hold a myriad of books. Many have been read but chances are many of them are on the yet to be read list.
I just completed a Chaotic Goddess book swap and am anxiously awaiting the package that will bring 3 more books my way. Oh yes—I am.
I have not even begun to tell you about my Kindle and how many unread books I have downloaded. Kindle First allows me to download one free book a month because I am an Amazon Prime member. I love my Kindle and use it a lot but it has been worth its weight in gold when I travel. No more lugging books along when I can have them all at my fingertips. With several weeks of travel coming up I am thrilled to have a loaded Kindle to carry in my purse. Honestly I take it with me everywhere because you never know when you are going to have to wait, right?
What is your addiction? Do you have loads of books in your stash or does your addiction something entirely different? I would love to hear what you “collect” and can’t seem to get enough of.
