Five Book Related Problems I Have
Time for reading and time for blogging is sometimes in short supply. This is a problem for most people, I think, because few people have enough leisure time to do everything they want to do. I don’t know how people who have children do it!
This is just one example: I sit down to read and I decide to check Game of War and make sure it’s not time to research or build something new. Then I notice an enemy has just teleported in right next to the alliance’s hive, so I have to shield up so I can’t be attacked, warn my alliance, and watch as the stronger guys in my alliance fight it out with the interloper. (Seriously, we get attacked every day and we’re supposed to be in ceasefire Sunday night through Thursday night. This one alliance has so much power — because they spend serious real money on the game — that they do whatever they want whenever they want and no one can do a thing about it. The whole kingdom hates them.) Then we decide to hunt lions together and suddenly it’s been three hours, it’s time for bed, and I haven’t read a word.
Other distractions include other internet time-wasters, like falling down a Google-hole, and TV.
My husband and I both work and we have other income streams as well, so while we’re not rich, we’re lucky enough to have money to spend on to spend on luxuries like books. I buy most of the books that I want, but I want ALL the books.
I can’t buy ALL the books.
Where would I put ALL the books? My bookcases are already stuffed, even with Book Purge 2015 underway.
I have so many books to read and can access so many more ebooks through Amazon that I get overwhelmed when I try to decide what to read next. I think that’s part of the reason my book polygamy has gotten so bad. I’ve been reading multiple books at a time since I was little, but eight really is excessive. Not only do I want to own all the books, I want to read all the books at the same time.
