I have a serious reading addiction. I get it from my mom. She was ALWAYS reading. It was very hard for her when she lost her vision to macular degeneration because she couldn't read. I am just like her. I am a voracious reader! There are just so many great books out there.
Unfortunately, our economy has not been kind to my reading addiction. Gone are the days of going to a bookstore and coming out with a bag full of books. I LOVE books! Look at my Goodreads list. There is a link on the side of my blog. See my to-read section? Last time I looked, it was between 250 and 300 books!
So, what's a girl to do? I tried the library. It holds some promise, but I just hate being held to a date. Sydney introduced me to Bookmooch, and I think it holds promise. I have sent out 6 books, and am getting back 5. In fact, two of them came today! It is very exciting to get books in the mail. There is a small drawback...I am really sad to see my books go. I know I would probably never read them again, but it does sadden me. Not only am a voracious reader, but I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to books. I have dreams of bookshelves (of course, I have no place to put them, but I do dream of them). So, for now, I will continue to mooch. It does hold a lot of promise, and that's a good thing!
