Why do I do this to myself?!

Well...I'm in a bit of a pickle...

As I said in my last blog, I started a book called "The Wall". Which is interesting, but the writing style is very distracting and not allowing me to "get into" the book. It is page after page of writing...there is not one chapter. That bugs me...I mean if your going to talk about something totally different from what you were previously, at least start a new chapter!

Ok I'm done my rant...

My "pickle" is that when "The Wall" dropped my attention, I jumped to my friend Kyles book "Love, Simon", which is good so far. I am enjoying the book very much! But..

The other day, I realized I had to use a coupon for Chapters, before Christmas Eve, so I figured I would go and pick up a book. BUT!! I walk in the store and they have a "Buy 3 get the 4th free" deal going on...Ok this is big trouble for my bank account! So needless to say I walked out of the store with 5 books (and a singing, dancing reindeer but thats another story).

So for all of you that are heavy readers...whats the first thing you do with new books?? Look at them, scan pages, etc. etc. Ok I did that...(and enjoyed the "new book" smell, kind of like when you buy a new car). Then cracked the book to read the first chapter ( I didn't break the spine!)...and now I'm totally screwed.

So to make a somewhat long story, short, I am now reading 3 books....*sigh* I do this to myself all the time, start one, find another, start that one etc. etc. And it's not just with books, it's with any "project" I work on. Start one..jump to another, and then never get around to finishing the first project!

To make matters worse...I have misplaced "The Wall"! Possibly on purpose?! Hmmm...

Sometimes I just wanna bang my head against a rock or something.


  1. LOL... Just read whatever tickles you at that moment! :)

    And where's your review of Absolution, eh? That should be book... what, 3? Or 4?

  2. NO...Dawn said I can't use her book because I was almost done it when we started this thing...She's just a party pooper. :) LOL!

  3. I say do it anyway... And a big :P to any pooping that should come of it!
