You described where I live and our public library! I don’t suppose you live in Iowa?

I have the longest list of books I still want to get and read. I ordered six books last week and have another five that should be coming in the mail today that weren’t even on this list. I seriously have no control over myself. I am definitely an “ADD to the list person.” I try to justify it with “but I was targeted by this book review that showed up in my email.”

Last year my new year goal was to wake up at 5 AM Monday- Friday so I could get more work done while everyone else was still sleeping. I made it the entire year. This year’s goal was to read every book I own before buying any more books. I didn’t even make it a week. Ha.
