I know, I know...crazy.
There are a couple of key movies and books that I do own and won't get rid of. I have all the Harry Potter books, and for some reason I keep every diet book I ever bought...talk about a shelf full.
I also own a few DVD's Airplane, Christmas Vacation, and Elf. You know...the classics.
but I digress...
The perfect solution to this first problem is to have good friend who buy books and are willing to loan them out and own a library card. These two solutions have given me a good deal of reading material over time, but it is a little inconvenient to have to wait for friends to offer up books and getting to the library seems like I am having to travel to the moon.
My second problem is really the greater issue. When I read a book...I can't put it down. All I want to do is read. I get so wrapped up in the book that I am drawn to it like a junkie to crack. I think about it when I am not reading it and I carry it with me at all times as to not waist one idle second. This means that I read when I am eating, when I should be doing housework, when I should be blogging, when I am cooking, and when I am supposed to be SLEEPING BECAUSE I GET UP SO DANG EARLY.
I am a hot mess when I am in the middle of a book...and to be quite honest it doesn't even have to be a GOOD book.
I was visiting my sister in Arkansas one summer and she had the Twilight series. I started reading the first one, the name of it eludes me at the moment (I know all you Twilight fans are screaming at your comupter right now...sorry)
Anyway she caught me reading it and told me that for my own good I should put it down and back away slowly...that I would forever regret getting sucked into this series. Well, I didn't listen and when I finished the first book and was craving the second it was time for me to leave. I asked her if she would loan me the rest and she told me that for my own good she would have to say no. And she didn't. I had to go find my
As I was in the middle of the last one...about 500 pages into it...(it was very long) I was cursing each and every page. I hated this book...but I couldn't stop thinking about it and reading it. I HAD TO FINISH IT. I thought it was so utterly riduculous...c'mon seriously. Bella a pregnant vampire whose baby inside her is killing her and her vampire husband is trying to save her while saving the baby and the warewolf who is also in love with her is also trying to save her AND when the baby is finally born the give it some ridiculous name and the warewolf figures out that the baby is his soulmate...while all the time waiting for the bad vampires to come kill them all.
AHHHHHHH I CANT TAKE ANOTHER SECOND PLEASE TAKE THIS BOOK FROM MY CLENCHED HANDS AND RELIEVE ME OF THIS LITERARY NIGHTMARE.
I'm sorry Kate...I should have listened to you.
I'm sorry Twilight fans...I tried.
