I’ve come to the sudden realization that I really do have too many books…both ebooks and read hard copy novels. Should there be a limit to how many books a person owns? I was browsing an online bookstore yesterday trying to find something to read when a sudden thought occurred…I already have books I haven’t read. Most of them I want to read…I just either haven’t had the time or it wasn’t appealing when I am trying to find something to read.
I have…I guess I can say an obsession with books. I can’t find it in myself to throw out or give books away. And I really can’t help myself when I go into the local bookstore. When I eventually leave I’ve always had a bag in my hands with a newly purchased book. I always save books….and magazines for that matter…but Magazines are an entirely different story. I need them for my studies and eventually my career. I’ve got magazines leading all the way back to before I was born.
I recently have taken into care my grandfathers belongings and in these blue Rubbermaid tubs are magazines and books on almost any topic. Some are really old and yet I find myself keeping them all. Some books I have no interest in reading but there like a connection to him and will forever be a keepsake of mine.
Whats your bookshelf like? Both ebooks and book?
