The other day I went to open my DRESSER and found the reason it has been creaking and groaning omninously from the corner in which it resides in. Apparently I stuffed it full of books.
Paperbacks, hardbacks, big books, little books all shoved in one of the drawers after I read them and forgotten like, well, books.
Actually looking at some of these I don't remember ever reading them, or buying them for that matter leading me to believe they are amongst those that mysteriously arrived from the book club I once belonged to even though I dutifully canceled every 'selection of the month'.
Since I have a to read stack that is a bit insane at the moment:
though just glancing at it I can see 4 books(the top 4) that can be knocked off the 'must read immediately' list.
I guess I will be needing to re-home some of the basket dwellers:
And drawer livers:
See just looking at those photos though I can see certain members of my 'family' that I just can't bear to part with:
Momzillas - a cute, hilarious read about the seedy underworld of the Type A mommy.
Mother- a story that brought me to tears, as I have always had a very rocky relationship with my mother at best
Marley & Me - a wonderful hilarious story about life with a dog, that sounds so much like some of mine(I get to see the movie tomorrow!)
Onion John- this may be a 'childrens book' but it has stuck with me through 2 moves, and several life changes.
Holy Bible- though I rarely read *THIS* copy anymore it was my first one that I ever got when we were actually going to church regularly. I have several other copies around, that get more use.
This leaves a few books out in the cold though:
You might be a Redneck if.... - just meh, considering who wrote it. Don't even ask about the patch on the front.
Nora Roberts Innocent in Death - I'm thinking this along with the James Patterson and the Johnathan Kellerman are from the book club of doom.
As for the basket books I found them and have to go through what looks like my 'humor' section and see what will make the cut.
Looks like I'll be doing some serious cutting if I want to get my room and such into shape though. *sighs*
