I am a compulsive book buyer. I am also a compulsive book carrier. I don’t even want to hazard a guess as to how many times my mother said to me when I was younger, “leave your book at home. You’re supposed to be talking to people.” This need to have a book on hand is probably the reason you’ll rarely catch me carrying a small purse–it at least has to fit a book or my Kindle. Actually, make that a book AND my Kindle. I like to carry both. 😉
Lately, however, my book buying habit has moved to a whole new level. My “to read” pile has gotten so large that I’ve bought duplicate copies of certain books. One of my recent purchases at Mysterious Galaxy was Scones and Bones, the twelfth installment in Laura Childs’ Tea Shop Mysteries. When I looked in my gym bag a few days later, guess what I found? Another copy of Scones and Bones, which I obviously put in there as an “emergency” book. I need to organize my shelves ASAP…or yesterday.
Here are a few of my duplicate purchases:
You see the problem.
In other news…how awesome was The Bletchley Circle? So awesome that I am seriously considering buying the DVD so I don’t have to wait to see the remaining two episodes. I have a few things I need to get off my desk, but I will be back with an honest-to-goodness post on the first episode by the end of the week.
In case you missed it (or if you just want to watch it again like me), the episode is available online until April 28th.
Hope your week is off to a good start! If you did watch The Bletchley Circle, I’d love to hear what you thought.
