- Fizzy Thoughts: Confession time

Confession time

Monday, September 01, 2008

I have 146 books in my TBR pile, which is no longer a pile, but rather 6 shelves of books. Please don't tell my mom...she gave me strange looks when I confessed to the leaning tower of books that previously lived in the closet.

This means that Karen is now the proud owner of The Lace Reader (unless you'd like a different book...check out this post for all the books I have available). Karen chimed in with 160, which was only 14 too many. Either Karen has been playing peeping tom(asina) or she's just smart like that.

Congratulations Karen! Please email me with your address and your book choice.

You know I'm thinking 146 isn't really that bad. OK-yes it's bad but I'm scared to find out how many I have. After reading your posts on your bookshelves which was pretty funny, I'm thinking I should tackle mine and at least get them organized and eeeeek maybe count them too.

Stephanie and Carrie - look on the bright side, you're in the running for the Friday giveaway. :-D

Dar - it was a lot of work...I really didn't expect it to take all day (of course I got sidetracked by cleaning the closet, too).

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
