I posted about this earlier on my author Facebook page. It’s true. I have an addiction.
Whenever a title or blurb from a new book catches my eye I go with it. That’s not entirely true – it could be an old book. I love older publications and classics as well.
It’s so easy to acquire these books on electronic devices since I can order in a flash on Amazon. Before I can blink, the coveted book is in my possession!
What am I thinking when I hit that BUY NOW button? Do I think there are more hours in the day, more free time on my hands? I want more, more, more! The solution? Acquire more books!
Don’t get me wrong. I do read a lot of those books that I just have to have. It’s mostly on Audible though. It was a great day when I learned I could multitask while also reading.
I can sew and read, drive and read, ride and read, do housework and read, and do laundry and read. I can even pretend to be watching TV with H and read.
I haven’t mastered reading and writing so my writing time suffers because of it. I do have a clean house and my laundry is done!
I have about 450 books on my kindle and 278 titles on my Audible app. I also have stacks of physical books stashed throughout the house. It’s as though I’m stocking up for some kind of disaster.
I hope when it hits we still have electricity! I’ll need power to keep all the electronics going or I’ll need a candle to read by.
