Some mistake my love of Kindles for a rejection of traditional books. This is foolish. I love reading and therefore I love anything that allows me to read books: Kindles, printed books, libraries, bookstores, and so on.
When you couple my love of books with my slightly obsessive compulsive personality (BUY! ALL! THE! BOOKS!) you get shelves groaning with unread books.
All these unread books don’t stop me from buying more books (mostly used, some Kindle books) and adding them to the shelves. It also doesn’t stop me from taking out 2-3 books each time I visit the Free Library.
I guess what I’m saying is that I like to read.
Marisa, in reaction to this behavior of ours (she’s also a bookworm, though since she’s a fancy pants food blogger she also tends to get 3-4 cookbooks in the mail a week from publishers hoping that she’ll write about them), has declared this month “Read What We Already Own” month.
The idea is simple: this month we’ll only read books we own. No new books, no library books. Just books from the apartment.
Good thing we have hundreds (perhaps even thousands) of books to choose from so it won’t be a hardship.
Of course on August 1st I’m totally buying Sacrifice of Fools at the very least.
