On the edge

You know how people say that a behavior becomes a problem once you start hiding it from others? Well, I may have finally reached that point with books.

I've been looking for jobs since graduation (no such luck, but if you're hiring, let me know!) and went to the library. I did have books to pick up as well, but I ended up with quite a few extras. Since I'm currently reading around 4 books and just got 2 (oh wait, just got another one for review, so 3) books in the mail, I decided that maybe my family shouldn't see all the books I got at the library. They are hidden (albeit not very well, but putting them on an already out-of-control pile of books is pretty decent camouflage, right?), and now I have to wonder about my book addiction.

Well, at least it doesn't cause me bodily harm (except some achy arm/hand muscles from holding lots of books) or risk my life. Also, when I get them from the library, I'm not spending exorbitant amounts of money.

OK. I just talked myself into denial of my "problem." We're good.


  1. Try having HUNDREDS of books and still get at least one a day in the mail. It's so out of control here that I don't bother hiding it anymore. It's not possible since the piles of books are everywhere. Oh well, my hubby takes my books and I take his video games and we just deal.
    Just got the message from Book Blogs and came by to say hi. :)

  2. I think it's further evidence of my "problem" that I'm actually jealous. I certainly have what my family would probably call 'too many' books, but getting at least one book a day in the mail sounds like a dream!

    Thanks for reading, I'll check out your blog!
