Books are everywhere at my house. Considering that I’m pretty sure a digital reader is an abomination…..mostly because it is….. my book collection is probably never going to stop expanding. I had a massive summer reading list set up and have read not nearly enough of them and more have been added to the stack!
First, there’s Harry Potter. Final movie came out and that means it’s time to read them. All of them. Yes, I know, you’ve already read them. How do I know, you may ask? Because that’s what everyone tells me. And yes, I also know that nearly everyone on the planet thinks I should have read them first and then seen the movies. I have a different opinion and I’m going with that.
Then there is the new Sylva library which just opened. We had a library before but I never felt particularly comfortable in there. It always seemed too close and too something or another that made me think it was going to smell bad. It didn’t but I had the feeling that it did. Anyhow, we have a stunningly beautiful library now. A real feather in the cap of any small town, much less a very small semi-rural town like ours. So, of course that means I have to check out books. It’s all old stuff like C.S. Lewis (The Four Loves, Mere Christianity), etc. But I had to, you see. I had to support the library by checking out books!
Anyhow, in the mean time I’ve added
Room by Emma Donoghue and
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
to the pile. They’re for two bookclubs. And the choir director at the church published her autobiography so I’ve added that. Oh, and there’s also a book or two to go along with my possible DMin that I’m contemplating. I can only hope that my former Ethics professor’s next book does not come out any time in the next six months.
I did decide I should give away some books and gathered the ones I am willing to part with together in a box. I think there are about four. Four books, not four boxes.
