Birthday and Books

11.15.2004

What an interesting combo

My weekend was perfect…I got to have some fun with my friends and I got a little spending money for books. Apparently my family is interested in supporting my paper drug habit (that’s books!); they like to feed my reading obsession.

With the activities of the weekend I wasn’t able to finish either of my current books, but I did get to read some – 20 pages left in one book; I’ll finish it tonight I swear!

The run-on sentence / question of the day is:

20+ books have been recently added or loaned into my collection; this makes me dance around like a ninny on crack and I don’t even know what a ninny is (!) but I have to ask my hyperactive self: with only 7 weeks left in the year, can I finish reading all of them before the year is out?

“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.”

– Groucho Marx
