Ahem.

Hello.  My elevate is Megan, too I'm a majority addict.

My woman raise introduced me to books at historic menses two.  The Firehouse Cat was my start book, too I genuinely retrieve reading it.  From at that topographic point it was piece of cake to reckon that I would give-up the ghost an addict.  I carried books alongside me everywhere (still create - I genuinely picked out my newest pocketbook based on how large it was too if it was large plenty to comport a heavy majority on tiptop of everything else inward there), fifty-fifty to the dinner tabular array too out to restaurants.  I would read earlier the start of a movie, or piece waiting for nutrient to arrive.  I would read piece waiting at the doctor's office, or on the schoolhouse bus.  It definitely irritated my trace of piece of work solid unit of measurement but what the hey, I was reading, right?  Couldn't last also destructive!

Well, I select been resisting the addiction for some time, although I can't nation it's working all also well.  Every twelvemonth I instruct at to the lowest degree i gift carte du jour to a bookstore for Christmas or my birthday, too I select no work spending it.  Now that I select a fiance who understands my book-mania, I instruct actual books!  It's difficult to nation which is better: opening a gift on Christmas to reckon a majority nether the paper, or getting a modest foursquare envelope too knowing I'll instruct to give-up the ghost selection out my ain books.  Both are fantastic, peculiarly when all I select to nation is "Here's my Amazon wishing list...I'll last happy alongside anything on it!"

For the record, my fiance's elevate is Chris, too he is non a bibliophile.  He does, however, concede to having a library inward the trace of piece of work solid when nosotros in conclusion purchase a trace of piece of work solid (as long every bit he gets his game room, which is fine alongside me).  We select fifty-fifty made plans to construct i simply similar the i inward Beauty too the Beast, although that's to a greater extent than a fantasy than a solid idea.  The rolling ladder inward the bookstore would last awesome, though.

Last twelvemonth my goal was to read 50 books.  This goal was non reached...although I did instruct variety of close.  I blame it on Chris for buying me video games that I could convey to function (he bought me a DS for Christmas 2009, along alongside a re-create of i of the older Final Fantasy games remade for the DS; too subsequently followed the newest Pokemon game.  Last twelvemonth he bought a PSP too and hence bought me Final Fantasy: Dissidia.  This terms me a lot of reading time).  Pokemon Black & White simply came out too he's been playing...so far I select resisted the temptation.

Books are my friends.  They brand me happy when I am sad.  They brand me experience too experience things I never would select if I hadn't read them.  They opened upwardly up novel worlds for me to explore.  I remain upwardly belatedly to complete them, I read nonstop when I can, too I pass most of my breaks at function sitting alongside my feet up, headphones on, majority open.

So welcome to my life of books.  To start, this night I went to Borders to selection upwardly something Chris had ordered too made myself walk inward without looking simply about too and hence dorsum out.  I did come about to hold off at some of the shelves, caught myself slowing downward too craning my cervix to reckon what was out, too and hence told myself to give-up the ghost along those feet moving!  I endeavor non to travel inward a bookstore unless I'm prepared to drib some serious cash (or if I select a gift carte du jour to pass - yay for other people's money!).  Tonight I also finished a majority I've been reading for virtually a week, Katharine Kerr's latest, License to Ensorcell, which made me happy too eager at the same time.  I loved the majority but right away I select to hold off months for the side past times side one!  To alleviate the demand to read more, I started a novel book, The Sugar Queen past times Sarah Addison Allen.  This majority was the effect of a gift carte du jour purchase, which is to say, it was on a whim.  I tend to last freer alongside gift carte du jour purchases - since it's non my money, I'll purchase something I've never heard of before.  This majority looks good.  It's virtually a daughter who hides sweets inward her cupboard too meets some other daughter "who is hounded past times books that inexplicably appear when she needs them," every bit said past times the dorsum of the book.  Interesting, yes?
