Some people go shopping for expensive bags to relief stress. Some people see a therapist. Still others climb mountains, practice yoga, or meditate. I go to libraries and take as many books as strike my fancy.
There is some strange satisfaction for me in having out more books than any human being could possibly need. Much like a gluttonous dragon, I hover over my precious new friends and rejoice in having a book horde.
So let’s see what got added to said Book Horde this week!

Will I read all of these books?
Magic Eight Ball and Experience says: Doubtful. But I’ll read a decent amount and discard the rest in a few weeks.
In the mean time having all these books here in my room in a rubber maid bin and on a bookshelf makes me feel happy so I’ve learned not to think too hard about it.
