Books. Reading. Drooling. Addiction.

I have a problem.
A serious problem. 
I am addicted to reading.
Since having Oaklie earlier this year reading has taken a back seat and has been semi non-existent. But despite that I just can't stop buying books & reading as much as I can...when I can. 
My parents were gracious enough to give me money for some much-needed wardrobe updating for my birthday this year but instead of buying pretty clothes I find myself spending it on books! 
This is a picture of all the books I have waiting to be read! Each one of them is calling my name and I drool and blow kisses at them every time I walk past them. 
This picture doesn't even include all the political books that I would die to go through. This is just some of the fun, spiritual and parenting books that I am aching to read. 
I can never seem to go through just one book at a time. I am always in the middle of at least 2, if not 5 (like I am right now) books. You have to have a book for every mood and having 5 of them meets that need! So..for now I am reading 2 parenting books, 1 spiritual book and 2 novels! Each of them is incredible in their own way. 
If only I was one of those people who could function on 5 hours of sleep a night and then I could stay up until 2 and read 'till my hearts content. Unfortunately I'm not that way, so I squeeze tiny bits and pieces of the books in where I can.
My most recent purchases are, "Heaven is Here" by Stephanie Nielson (and wow is is a page turner); "A Return to Virtue" by Elaine S. Dalton (a very good, spiritual book); and then I'm in the middle of "The Book Thief"...but that one is an audio book that I listen to while I run and boy is it good. 
It's my dream, one day, to have a small library full of books, with a nice bay window where I can sit and read (and eat chocolate) for hours and hours. 
Until that time comes I am grateful that my time is spent raising my kids and soaking up their cuteness!
