One Night Stand

I am officially drowing in a sea of literature. This is what my nightstand looks like.


I didn't add anything to enhance the picture, I didn't even dust. (Don't you DARE zoom in!) See, here's the thing: when I want a book from the library, I just put in a hold request and it just so happened that several became available at the same time. The problem is, I now have 3 weeks to read all these (I can't renew because other people are waiting on them too). In the meantime, my bathrooms haven't been cleaned, floor needs to be mopped, chandelier needs to be finished, gotta...get...to...the...gym, etc. And yet here I sit, blogging about it instead.

LOL...well, unfortunately I don't read all that much, even though I try...I really do...time is a factor, and of course my mind gets very distracted...but pretty much, your post is my life....lol...and like you said, I also sit here checking out Blog and my facebook...lol...of course only a few minutes each day - I have a 4 year old and a 16 month old that is presently holding on to my leg to pick him up...lol...well, go to go! :)

See and this would be the exact reason I don't read books. I would much rather spend my time reading about important things in people's blogs. But feel free to read one of those books on my behalf!

That's pretty much what my nightstand looks like, without the phone. It's pretty sad, too, considering I haven't even been reading lately.

Umm...I zoomed in and...GROSS. No, just kidding! But SUPER CUTE BOOKMARK!!!! Wow - makes my post-it-note bookmark look like crap. Oh, and the books. Good luck with that one. You're my idol if you can read all of those in 3 weeks. I can barely read a book in 3 months...

...and now you've inspired me to go dust something...(haha!)

I envy your enthusiasm for novels, I am a magazine reader through and through. It would take me years to get through that pile.

BTW, Love the title for this post-hilarious!
