I cannot live without books. -Thomas Jefferson

I have a somewhat addictive personality.

This is not to say that you will become addicted to my sunny disposition after meeting me, but instead that I tend to become addicted to certain things.

Example? In high school I drank 3-4 bottles of Mountain Dew a day. Every day.

Thank goodness I got strep throat and couldn’t drink the stuff anymore- I think it was probably eating a hole in my stomach lining.

I’m currently addicted to red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. (And working out every day to counteract its effects on my waistline.)

But the one thing I’ve always been addicted to?


I’m too lazy to count them (I’m on summer vacation so you’ll have to cut me some slack), but I did an estimate today and I own 500+ books.

It’s not enough! I need more!

What about you? Are you a book addict? How many books do you own? Or better yet, how many do you think you’ve read?
