I was hanging out with friends today, and of course, with the friends I have, we decided to go to the used bookstore near my house.
And of course, being the literary nerd that I am, I couldn’t leave the store without buying a few books.
And then… my friend suggested another used bookstore and another, until we had travelled all around my town, and my purse was full of books, and my wallet was completely empty.
So now I have five new books to add to the shelf where I keep books I haven’t read yet, which was already pretty packed to begin with.
And I also still need to finish Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
Aaaaand (yes, there’s more literary madness still to come) I’m part of a book club, and I’m supposed to read the first 12 chapters of Lolita by Saturday.
What a great problem to have: too many books to read.
Instead of first world problems, I think this is an English nerd problem 🙂
