I Lose Track Of Time...

I have to keep track of all the books I want to get in my head, so after I look through them, I can go back and just get the ones I want the most.

Like I need any more books in my bookshelves...

Of course I do...

I know what you mean. My dream home would have a large, old fashioned library with tons of bookshelves, a fireplace, a coffee bar and several comfy chairs. (One can always dream...) I really do hope to dedicate a room in my house to books, though. How else will I ever have enough space for them all? LOL!

I always wanted one of those big house libraries with whole walls of books,<br />
I like to look at all my books and think, "I've read those books"

Free Books! Yay!!! The only thing better than finding a great, inexpensive used book is getting a great free book.<br />

I know what you mean! One of the walls in my bedroom is completely dedicated to books shelves, and I still don't have enough room for all of my reading material. A couple of people have suggested to me that I should join one of those book-swap group, but I just can't bring myself to get rid of books. I love rereading them. It's like visiting an old friend. Someday when I buy or rent a house, I've decided I'll need to turn one of the rooms into a library. Luckily, my current room mate and good friend, who plans to rent a house with me when we both finish college, is also a bibliophile. I'd have a hard time convincing someone who isn't a big reader that a library is an absolute necessity. LOL.

It's a vicious circle isn't it, <br />
More books, <br />
more bookshelves, <br />
more books...<br />
I have a storage unit, <br />
and the man that runs it <br />
always gives me the books that people leave behind.<br />
I shouldn't take them, but I can't turn them down. <br />
Boxes and boxes of more books...<br />
Swords? Too many swords? Now that is different...

Firstly, I have to agree that there is no such thing as enough books. Of course we all need more books! In fact, I not only need more books, and need more bookshelves! LOL! I always tell my friends: "A girl can never have too much jewelry, too many books, too much coffee or too many swords."<br />

I have to admit I keep a list of the book I want, too. My memory is too bad to keep a list in my head, however, so I have to write it all down. Thankfully, a combination of Good Reads and an Amazon Wish List makes that easy. : )

Old books just want to be read!
