As If I Needed More Books

Or at least that's what my dear husband would say.  I can't help it.  There is so much to read and so little time.  And Simcha Fisher's newest post is not helping my book habit.  Thank goodness for paperbackswap.*  I think I would put us in the poor house buying books were it not for that.

I know, I know, you're saying.  Get thee to the library, girl!  And we do go.  But my fines are stacking up, because getting the books back to the library is not my strong suit.  And there really isn't anything better than having bookshelves overflowing with books in your house.

I just call what I spend on books part of the "Education" budget.  What?  My kids will read "Til We Have Faces" at some point, right?  And then I won't have to spend money on the books that I get now (because, ahem, I'll be buying even more then).  I'm investing in our future.

Who knows?  At the rate things are going now, by the time my kids are old enough to read some of the books I have acquired, they may be unavailable, or worse yet, banned...

*If you join paperbackswap using my link, I will get a free book credit.  And then you too will be investing in my children's education.  :)
