I acquired all these books within the last two months. All of them are used. Some of them I got because I know I want them in my Miao Library, but the others (e.g., Jasper Fforde) I got on recommendation and haven’t read yet. Irregardless, I think I may have a problem. I’m buying at a rate faster than I can read.
Kitty-snorgling and book-buying are both valid forms of stress relief.
I would like someone to tell me that buying a stack of books taller than my kitty is normal.
I used to get most of my books from the library and only buy ones I knew I would want to read again, but the Miao Town library is not very user-friendly and I have fallen into bad habits.
I joined two bookswapping sites last year. I’ve gotten rid of a lot of Papa Miao’s mass market paperbacks, but I have acquired an almost equal number of books in the process.
I don’t have enough room on my shelves for all my books but this is not new. I’ve never had enough room.
I would like to blame my parents for raising me in a house that could easily be mistaken for a library.
