Scribble and Scrambles - Books, Books, More Books

Ane blogged the top five reasons that she knows she has too many books on her to-be-read list...

Here are mine:

5) My cats lay on my books just to get a little attention and affection.

4) I have to take a running leap to clear the stack of books near my bed.

3) The puffy gold packages on my doorstep or in my mailbox induce a blend of guilt, excitement and weariness.

2) I have books in random stages of reading in my purse, on my bedside stand, in the kitchen, living room and bathroom so that I can catch a few paragraphs while stirring, waiting or winding down.

1) I wake up with random words "tattooed" on my forehead or cheek.

But, I must say, reading is a passion, pleasure and blessing. So, as long as they keep a coming, I'll keep on a reading.
