Ten Eight Book Related Problems I Have
This is actually kind of hard. Here are the problems that I could think of:
1. Too Many Books
2. Not Enough Time
Isn't this the problem with all book lovers? Here is my biggest time suck
3. My house is too small
Seriously, I need a bigger house for all my books. But honestly, I dread having to weed my collection or move it.
4. My job
I love my job. I'm good at my job. I'm a librarian, but if you ever wanted to be a librarian so you could be around books, don't do it. Go work in a bookstore. I do almost NO reading for my job, but I'm there for most of my waking hours.
5. Staying awake
This one is particularly painful. I never used to get tired while reading, but in the last few years, I am having a harder time staying awake. It takes me much longer to get through some books because I just can't stay awake.
6. I can't remember
I am having a hard time remembering books in series. I need to start waiting until series are completed before reading them, because this is getting ridiculous. I am often lost the first few chapters because I can't remember what I read a year ago. I don't know if it's age, or just reading too many books. This leads me to my next problem...
7. The need to re-read
Way to often I either want or need to reread sometime, but then I look at this enormous pile of books all over the house, and realize I just can't re-read them. I would have too much guilt about books I haven't read yet.
This is me being selfish, but I have so little time to read, and I covet that time. I feel bad for my husband, but when I have a precious second, please don't come up and want to start talking about absolutely nothing. You've just made me very sad, and I really just want to get back to my book.
