Good Sunday to you. It has been a quiet week around here, except for the weather, which has been wild and blustery. I am ready for slightly warmer temperatures. It was sunny yesterday but the wind was cool so I never got out to the garden. I’m hoping today will be milder.
There is something eating the sunflower seedlings. Peas, beans and some greens are up but the poor sunnies are chopped off at the neck! I will have to find some bigger starts at the nursery.
As for my reading this week, I finished and reviewed two great novels. I feel like I am keeping up with my library reads and my challenges. I bring home a bunch of books, browse through them and decide on the ones I really want to read. I do not hesitate returning the others. But there is a problem.
I have piles of book that have found their way into this house. They are not library books. Some where given to me, thanks to Bookmooch and generous bloggers. Some I traded for. Some I actually bought. With every intention of reading them. Wendy has a Random Reading Challenge but I keep forgetting about it.
If you have stacks and piles of book that are slowly taking over your house do you have a way of managing them? How do you choose what to read? Do you ever cull books without reading them?
Oh, and even though I am on a self-imposed book buying ban, somehow, through the magic of the internets and my trusty credit card (I should really cut the thing up) I have three books wending their way here from Canada. Right, you say, no will power at all. I’ve been waiting months and months and months for these books to be published in the US. I’ve hoped my library would buy them. I can wait no longer.
