Thirty-one. 31 books I own and have owned for years and years several months AND have not read yet! I have a problem. AND, to make matters worse, I have maaaany more books that I am craving to get my hands on! AND, there will always be MORE.

Some people hoard clothing, some memorabilia from the past, some meaningless knick knacks. It appears...I. Hoard. Books.

Sigh. What is a girl to do. With all of these awesome books (ranging from classics to mysteries to christian non-fiction to new authors to music therapy case studies)...I better never complain about being bored again, huh?


  1. My husband got tired of all of my books hogging up the spare bedroom, he asked me to get rid of them all (what, all of them). We agreed that I would get rid of all but 10. Santa Claus got me a kindle for Christmas, it is my new best friend. While I'm typing this I'm tapping my foot to fishin in the dark, LOVE THIS SONG.

  2. My hubby also got me a kindle for Christmas because our bookshelves were full:)

  3. Uh-oh, it appears I have the same problem, thanks for diagnosing me.

    I keep meaning to donate some, but haven't gotten around to ot.

  4. You are just building your own library! I love reading, just wish I had more time.

  5. I love this! I'm the same way, lots and lots and lots of books. My plan is to someday have and office with built in bookshelves to house all of said books. I do have a kindle now, but if I find a book I really love, I buy the book too. Can't wait until we can add "what to expect" to the collection! :)

  6. :) I just added to my post that these are just the ones I have NOT read yet! There are more that I HAVE.

  7. If you are looking for a place to start, Screwtape Letters would be my recommendation, followed by Pride and Predjudice for a light read or The Red Tent for something a bit heavier. I will now use your list for my summer reading - so many excellent choices there I haven't read yet!
