I just got four books from the library today. I would be shaking with anticipation if I wasn't typing. I am very excited about reading them, but I can't.
I made a rule for myself a while ago- only two books at a time. This helps me keep the plots straight, and collect my thoughts about the book when I have finished it. Currently, I am reading two books, so I must wait until I have finished them to read 'The Lightning Thief', 'The Calder Game', 'The People of Sparks', and 'The Prophet of Yonwood'.
This can be good, though. 'Grendel' is a required read for school this year, not one I chose out of interest. Knowing that these four books are sitting on my dresser, waiting for me, may be just enough encouragement to finish it.
I'm off to find a cosy corner, there are several books waiting for me.
