I might die before I read these books: 2010

I was at the library on Sunday picking out DVD’s and suddenly I started ravaging the new fiction shelves.   Like a rabid literary villian, I started stacking them in my arms.

I looked left…

then right …

and dashed to check out elbowing children out of my way before my conscious could reprimand me for these indiscretions.

It was done.

When I arrived home, I saw my stack of neglected books from my 2010 booklist in the corner and felt instant “I abandoned my original children, but adopted a few more for kicks” guilt. Studs Turkel, still stained from a vegetable soup spill a few weeks ago, lay mournfully on top of Pride and Prejudice and James Joyce, still in the bookshelf, mocked me openly “Project Runway: Season 2…really?”

I’ll get to them. I swear.


About Restless Cube Dweller

Most of my adult life has been defined finding homes in unconventional places, and learning to interact positively with others. I've lived in the middle of nowhere, in small cities, in large cities, in the suburbs, and now in Dubuque, Iowa. This blog represents my musings about growing up, moving on, finding love, and eating well in the suburbs and beyond.
