Bibliophiles Anonymous

I don’t go to the library often, but when I do I check out 18 items at once!

I definitely have a problem. I have no sense of moderation when it comes to media. LOL! I can’t help it! I keep seeing all kinds of things that I want to read or watch…

I got to the library late today, as the Friends’ Used Book Store is only open from 10 – 1 pm. It’s probably a good thing that I only had a couple minutes to look, as I only found one book, and so only spent $1. The book that I bought was “The Power and The Glory,” by Graham Greene. It was recommended to me by Dad Riccardo, and has been on my Amazon wishlist for a while now.

While I did take home 19 items, I do have to return 18 of them, and took 2 bags of books with me to donate to the library. I got rid of over 30 books! I don’t really part with my books easily, but am trying to get onboard with the concept of decluttering my house. There are so many books that I’d like to read, and probably won’t get around to, there’s no point in hanging on to books that I really don’t desire to read (again).

And, of course, there’s no trip to the library without… paying the library fine. Inevitably, I will return some books late and incur a penalty. And since I almost never have cash on me, this prevents me from returning to the library for a long period of time. Which probably contributes to me checking out way too many items when I do go. Which probably causes me to return books late. It’s a vicious cycle, but ultimately, I think it benefits the library. After all, they are getting my fine money every time, right? πŸ™‚

So, now I have 1 week to watch 5 movies, and 3 weeks to read 13 books. Totally doable, yes? πŸ™‚
