So Little Time

Yet so many books! How will I ever read every single one of them, especially since I sometimes start one and pick up another before the other is finished.

I have such book shame, because I haven’t read everything, and i also can’t keep up with movies about books. I think I”m just on the slow side of popular culture. On the other hand, maybe everyone else is in the same boat that I am, and they just appear to have done all of their reading for the school of life. I think probably all of us are content just to know the books are there, and we celebrate when anyhing gets read by anyone.

When I was younger, I wanted nothing more than to write books, and I would imagine stories before falling asleep at night just because I could. Needless to say, the Great American Novel has not been written by myself, much less read. As I got older, I realized that I was too much all over the place, and that I just needed to focus on one task at a time, rather than dreaming of artistic majesty.

I still love to see a bookshelf full of books, and still believe that the finest gift is a well-thought out book selection for a friend. It is not guaranteed that I’ll actually read a book gift, though, but I will surely look at the cover and smile. I also hate to make recommendations, because I think it’s intensely personal and up to you to find a book to read by your own self. My career goal has been to make book jackets and illustration, but it was never actualized. I think for right now I will just collect the precious things, and dream of paper and ink.

  1. I will like to have a massive study too but you see, most books are now in digital format.
    I love reading in piecemeal too. I think we have that in common. I can count the number of books I have read from cover to cover.

    Keep being you and strive to be better 😁

  2. Sometimes I also struggle to finish a book before I get my hands on another more interesting book. True, scheduling helps with this. And I also find books to be extremely personal. They right book depends on the phase one is going through at the moment.

      1. We said. It all comes to time management and what we are willing to sacrifice within our days for some extra reading time😏. Welcome and have a great weekend to.

  3. I so understand, recently I decided to stop binge reading my old standby favorites and look for new ones. And because I cannot just keep buying books and never reading them, I try to not buy more until I read the ones I have. I will admit though that this last resolution is frequently and purposefully forgotten. Happy Reading! Belinda
