bibliobibuli - the sort of people who read too much
I'm not sure there really is such a thing as people who read too much. Too much of the wrong thing, maybe. Sure. But too much altogether? Doubtful.
I'm not much for resolutions. I'm more of a "give me rules and I'll break them" kind of girl. But I think if I were to make a resolution in any direction, it would be this:
This year I resolve to cultivate myself into
and hone my skill as a bibliobibuli-type of girl.
There are alot of good books out there, y'all. ALOT! (You know this, man!) My list of books to readslashown is extensive. Longer than both of my arms. End-to-end, in case you were confused and thought I meant side-by-side.
Because no, that's not what I meant.
I totally meant end-to-end.
Anyway, as I was saying,
Here are a few titles I'm hoping to soon enjoy:
Life of Pi
Water for Elephants
Born on a Blue Day
Peace Like A River
Parenting is Your Highest Calling and 8 Other Myths That Trap Us in Worry and Guilt
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society
Notes From the Tilt-a-Whirl
If you'd like to help me achieve my goal (of reading, reading, reading whilst avoiding other menial tasks because how else does one become a bibliobibuli?) feel free to add to my list. Don't hide your love away!
Also under the don't column, don't recommend that Francine Rivers book, Redeeming Love. I read it. I hated it.
Other than that though, proffer up! (...and thanks!)
