Ennui

To love to read is to exchange hours of ennui for hours of delight. ~Charles de Montesquieu

You know that when I'm MIA from blogging for days at a time it's usually because I'm lost in a world of books. I haven't had that much time to read this year so this weekend I spent it catching up on myself. I was lost in the Carpathian mountains, Arthurian legends and Greek gods all over again.

I floated back to earth a few hours. My TBR (to be read) pile has diminished much over the last few days. Now I have to find more books to build it up again.

*sigh*

can you see me turning green with envy???

i have a massive pile of magazines and a stack of books to read. i have banned myself from the public library so i can read what i have first.

which is hard for someone who loves books as much as i do.

to boot, i've somehow become addicted to some shows on tv.

there just isn't enough time!!! i can't wait until i'm retired. i will read all. day. long.

I get lost in books while in the bathroom. I'm thinking of putting in a bookcase in the linen closet.
