a million words

I was done with projects, ready for the holidays & going crazy.  I had been on the library’s website & went nuts ordering a ton of books…quite a few using the Inter Library Loan system.  So, here’s a thing about me….once I go pick up a book, I really feel obligated to read it (unless I start it & don’t like it…then it goes back unread). So many people have worked to get me that book…especially the ILL books, that it seems wasteful to me to just turn it back in…unread.

But, the clock was ticking & the stack of books was growing.  I started on a reading adventure like I’d never done before.  

I read 19 books in 20 days.

Pretty much that’s all I did.  I sort of became obsessed to get them all read before we left for Florida.  And I did.
