I saw this line in Shelf Awareness today, "Ever
worried you might be generally addicted to books?" , and immediately I thought "Why no, actually; I'm well aware that I'm addicted to books and I'm not in the least bit worried about it!"
The line was followed by...The
Guardian offered
"15 signs to prove you're a book addict.... But don't worry
about kicking the habit. Books are awesome."

I've read at least 6 of them. Image Bet Barb and Christine have read more than that!

Olle, I've read only one with another on my shelf and a different Tim Winton book awaiting my attention. Betcha can't guess which one I've read? LOL

Did you know today is National History Day. Neither did I; my local library informed me on their website today where they have a page full of interesting links. Off to check it out.

You'd be wrong Olle. I've only read 5 of those I think.

Kathy, I just saw the news about Harper Lee's new book on Facebook. I can't wait to read it, but I am nervous as well. Will it be as fine as TKAM?

How could it be? It's sort of scary, in a way, don't you think?

I read that Ms Lee wrote this one first, preceding TKAM.

Hope she hasn't been bamboozled into releasing this.... it seems odd to be doing it after all this time.
