Can you believe how long it’s been since I updated this? I do believe that this is the longest stretch in my entire life that I have gone without diving into a book. I think my brain may revolt.
It’s not that I haven’t been reading though. I have just been reading something besides books. I’m almost afraid to show this to you. Denton says that I have a problem. And I do. It’s the fact that there are not enough hours in the world for me to consume all of the THINGS I want to read. Let’s get started.
Brace yourself. This is the start of the “to be read” pile. Keep in my that I daily remove magazines from it and put them into the donate pile.
My magazine piles. It drives Denton bonkers. I don’t know why. He has “piles” of things like guitars! Last summer when my family was here, my nephew Gideon asked me why Uncle Denton has so many guitars. Because he loves them. And he plays them. So my justification is I LOVE having reading material at hand at all times and I actually read them. So there is that.
The back of the toilet pile. Don’t judge. The two minutes it takes to take care of life’s necessities is reading time in my world. And I’ll read anywhere. Have you ever read one of the Uncle John’s bathroom readers? They are full of fascinating things.
The current bathroom reading material. You can create your own, just like I did!
This is my to be read pile next to the computer in the living room.
The stack I read last week. There are 32 here. Yes, I know there are two Cosmo’s from April in there. The woman who owned our house eleven years ago is still sending me her magazines.
70 magazines from the two weeks before.
All of that to say, I have deliberately kept myself from picking up a book for the last month, so that I can cull down the enormous pile of magazines that I have waiting on me. I believe that this is my limit though. I need the diversion of an excellent book that I can lose myself in, even if it’s just for 20 minutes, that books offer. My magazines are excellent, but they can’t give me that.
If you want to start your own magazine pile, all the ones below are on sale right now for $5.00! I love them, I’m sure you will too!
That’s all I’ve got for now. What have you been reading? I’m always looking for a new book!
