Have I ever mentioned my obsession for books? I'm sure you've picked up on it. I mean you are visiting my blog on a website I created centered around children's books. The signs are all there, but if you need me to say it, here goes: "Hello, my name is Melissa and I am obsessed with books." How's that?
It's not a bad obsession to have really. Most women are obsessed with shoes or purses, I just prefer something with a plot. Unfortunately, my living space can't accommodate my obsession. I'm about as maxed as I can get with maybe a little breathing room. What the hell am I going to do when that room has no more oxygen left? As I sit here with 10 books surrounding me and about 10 more in the mail coming my way, I know I am going to find out fast. So here is what I've decided.
Next year for lent (yes I am waiting a year cause I need to prepare myself), I am going to give up buying books. 40 days and nights of no book purchasing. Lord help me. I have never given up something I was this obsessed with, so I know this will be difficult. But, why am I saying this now you might ask instead of 10 months from now when I will be closer to that date? The answers is you. You will be there to remind me that I made this plea. That on this Wednesday in May I vowed to give up buying books for lent. And then when I swear to you that your are mistaken, you will pull out this blog and show me the proof I will need for you to convince me that I had gone insane. With that proof, I will still huff and puff and then I will give in. Are you ready for the task at hand? I know I'm not.
Blogs are whatever we make them. Defining ‘Blog’ is a fool’s errand.
