I don’t know about you all, but it is HOT here.
It has been in the 100s, so not pleasant at all. This being the first day of summer means it will only get worse.
In fact I don’t want to do anything, and I most certainly do not want to do anything outside.
I mean it feels like you are stepping out into an oven. Immediately sweat pours out of every pore.
So what is a girl to do?
Yep, it is the perfect weather to sit indoors enjoying your air conditioning, iced tea, and a good book.

That is false:
You can never have too many books:
You have no more room? Just make more space! Get creative, artsy, more shelving!
Yes, book lovers are never satisfied with what they have, they always need more.
But we book lovers wouldn’t have life any other way.

So the other day I went to the bookstore, and you know how much I love that.
But this time I had a plan. I had far too many books at home that I had yet to read; so I wasn’t going to buy myself anything, just birthday shop for my friend.
But then when I started looking I found all these books half off.
So I grabbed a bunch I liked along with some potentials for my friend. But then I looked at the bargain books. They were beautiful hardcover classics and oh, my I wanted them all.
So there I was with stacks of books, looking and wanting them all.
Nothing else I seem to have this problem, except with books.
But then reality hit me. I already needed more shelf space, and really have books spilling everywhere.
So I did one of the hardest things, I had to put some of the books back.
Instead I bought one book, a selection of stories from One Thousand and One Nights, in a beautiful hardcover book for only $8.
I then bought a copy of Tarzan of the Apes for $2.50; a steal of a deal.
But then I had to do something with all the books I wasn’t taking home. So I stacked them on top of each other and carried them around the store putting them back. One of the employees saw me and asked if I needed a cart, but said no I was putting things back. He was worried about me carrying so many. But I was like I work in a library, I do heavy lifting like this all the time.
Because you know, that’s how I roll.

Yep I have a problem all right.
But it doesn’t matter if I have a bunch that I still haven’t read, after all:
Yep my library is over-flowing and is quite a complicated thing.
But you know what?
Because you can never have enough books.

I read this book once about a girl getting stranded in the library and I used to hope something like that would happen to me. Being stranded in a library or bookstore may sound crazy to some but:
Like in the movie The Day After Tomorrow, when they are all trapped in the library, that would be absolutely perfect for me.
I mean except for the deathly, freezing temperatures; that’s like a dream come true.
Yep that would be pure bliss.

I do have a problem. I can’t stop buying books. Even when I have no room for them.
No matter what arguments I make, I end up taking at least one book home.
But hey, what better thing to spend your money on, right?
I wholeheartedly agree!
