Too Many Books?

Too many books? That's just crazy talk, right? Lately Matt has been complaining that I have too many books, as they are piled up on the bookshelf, in my closet, and anywhere else they will fit. I just can't help it. I have a bad habit of buying books faster than I can read them. I also don't like getting rid of books once I read them, especially if I like them. I know we don't have the room, but I'd love to have my very own library one day. I'm donating a few and taking a few to consign at a local new/used bookstore. One of my new years resolutions is to read more (and donate or share books once I am finished with them), so hopefully that will help. Currently I'm reading:
The Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain (AKA my Travel Channel Crush): He's so sarcastic and I just can't get enough of No Reservations. I love his style of writing, it makes me want to learn more about food and cooking.
It Ain't All About the Cookin': Paula's biography! I've been waiting to read this for a while, and was really excited to receive it from Santa Claus.
New Moon: Slowly working my way through the Twilight series, not b/c I don't like it, but because I want to make it last longer! I love it!
Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, by Nene Leakes: a birthday gift from some of my girls who know I love RHOA and Nene. I haven't gotten that far into it, but I'm liking it so far.
What are your favorite books lately?


  1. New Moon was my least favorite of the Twilight series and I *still* couldn't put it down! I'm re-reading it now... siiiiiiiigh. :)

    I also got Dear John by Nicholas Sparks from mom for Christmas - can't wait to get going with that!

  2. Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode when George leaves his books at his girlfriends house and sends Jerry to get 'em. "The Break-Up"
