Looks like it is a busy day for me here, but I just felt the need to follow up.
Earlier, I posted my Musing Mondays post in which I mentioned that my moms opinion of my bookshelf-age is that I need to not buy more books until I read all the ones I own. Well, when my Borders coupons were mentioned, we ended up at the bookstore. This was also my second bookstore trip of the day, I went book hunting after work earlier. I found some books that had been suggested and some that just caught my interest, even a few classics. Whoo hoo for bargain book shopping and coupons to the bookstore.

All of these new books had me thinking about this weekends Weekly Geeks. I hadn’t posted anything on it, but I suppose I can do a mini post for it. The topic was about what they call Shiny Book Syndrome. That basically being when you get a new book or books and you end up putting aside all the other ones you already have to read the new ones.
Naturally when I was going through all of my new books, trying to figure out where to put them and all, I was trying to decide which I wanted to start reading first. Then I thought to myself, why don’t you just wait to choose until you finish Tribute and Tess of the D’Urbervilles. So thats what I’m doing!
