I love books.

I don't know what it is about a book store, but I could spend hours there. Reading the backs of books, browsing through each different genre, paging through magazines. Chris and I used to spend evenings there on date nights, but it's been awhile. Last night, we happened to stop by Barnes and Noble and I fell into the habit all over again. I dont' think I could ever work at a bookstore because I would spend my paycheck there. I used to work at the library, but that was okay because it didn't cost you anything and you had the power to erase the late charges. I'm not so keen on the library these days because they don't always have everything you want and sometimes, books have weird odors or stains. A little gross.

It doesn't matter how often I visit the bookstore, I'll always find something to buy. This is the despite the fact that I still have a bunch of books sitting on the shelf that are waiting to be read as it is. I'm looking forward to our upcoming vacation to North Carolina where I know I'll get a lot of reading done. I have a few books on the stack that are coming along:

Reason for Hope by Jane Goodall
ve always been intrigued by Jane Goodall's life and anytime I get a chance to read about her adventures, I'm game.

This was a "top pick" at B&N and looked like a good one. We'll see. Anyone read it?

Talk about a dream job... your editor asks you to write a book about traveling to 1000 places around the world. Twist my arm.

I actually read Memory Keeper's Daughter. It was pretty good, but I gave it to my mom to read; she likes stories about women who can survive without men.

I really enjoyed the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz. I think you'd really like them, too. The have a lot of dry humor and you'd love the main character. There are three in the series so far.
