Choices, Choices Everywhere

If there’s one vice our entire family shares, it’s reading. Well, and maybe a love for Sonic shakes or sundaes, but we won’t get into that one here.

We were on vacation last week because the kids were out of school for fall break. What’d we do a few days before leaving? We visited our local Books A Million store to let everyone stock up on beach reading material. I was a good girl and got one book; the kids and my husband all got two books each.

But before you start feeling sorry for me because I didn’t get as many books as everyone else, you might want to look at my “to be read” piles …

Here’s a look at a partial stack of novels I’m ready to disappear into (not counting the Percy Jackson series I’ve finally started reading after my son has bugged me about it for two years and a book that came in the mail afterwards that I’ll write some reviews on).

And this one shows a partial stack of non-fiction titles waiting to enlighten me (not counting some of the titles I’m partway though).

Once you put all these books, the ones I’ve read, piles of papers for work, and various other stuff in my office, you can only imagine how things look. And, yes, I’m leaving that one to your imagination because I’d be too embarrassed to post pictures of it for the world to see.

I actually read three books while we were out of town and sneaked in one more since getting home. Now to decide which one to tackle next … but what a wonderful dilemma to face!

Happy reading. 🙂

My name is Leigh, and I'm a writer who was fortunate enough to work from home while our children were growing up. During those years of freelance writing and editing I helped clients with brochures, website copy, magazine articles, press releases and more. I was also blessed to write and publish three devotional books (two under my name and one as a freelancer) and have individual devotionals published in several places. I returned to the corporate work world in 2016 but continue to handle occasional freelance projects and chip away at several novels that have lurked on my computer for years.

  1. I have very similar stacks at my house. A library stack, a to be reviewed stack, and a non-fiction stack that contains some of the same titles in your stack … LOL (I wouldn’t anyone to see my space either!)

    1. My husband and I said from early on when people wanted to buy gifts for the kids that there was no such thing as too many books. Some people might argue that fact and I know our house would look better without all the stacks crammed around, but it doesn’t bother us a bit!
