They miss me at the library. I really miss them.....
I am so pathetic that when I had ten minutes to kill at the library, I perused the "New Arrivals" shelf....... and checked out three books....... three books that I know that I have no time to read.
I only checked them out so I could stare at them and long for a time to read them.
That last part was the pathetic part.
Yep. I told my oldest daughter that was why I checked those books out. Her look validated how pathetic I am.
My name is Chari. I am a bibliophile. I think it is sad that I am too beyond the ability to read right now.
I keep having flashbacks to the last three Januaries. I started the last three years off with such excellent titles. 2011
I guess this is a literary dry period. I have had them before. Rarely. But I have had them. I keep trying to fix it.
It just came to me. Perhaps I will pick out a saint biography for my Lenten read. Lent starts in a month. Maybe that goal will give me a place to start.......
.......which reminds me. Willa, are you done with that St Charles Borromeo bio that I lent to you a year or two ago? If you have not read it. You should.
Also, and now off-subject..... But I have a chunk of days off in February. If I don't go anywhere, maybe you should come for a visit? Just thinking out loud......
In the meantime, and back to the subject at hand......
Here are the three books I scooped up......
They all look so interesting. Maybe after all of these working days, I can at least introduce myself more formally to each book, before I am forced to return them.
Have any of you read these titles?
A review of the above title
I have been warned that this above author may be a bit modernist for my tastes.......
And this is the one I most want to read......and I may just do so.
Love the title.
It has its own Wikipedia page.
This post is a bit of a ramble........mostly because I was writing it on my iPhone during a lunch break. On this day, I found a very quiet little abandoned room at the hospital where the sun shines in a large window and warms up the atmosphere of the room. I may find myself hiding in there for each break until it warms up enough to take my breaks out of doors. It is a plave very conducive to iPhone blog rambling.
