B is for Bibliophagist

Bibliophagist: One who devours books, literally or figuratively.

I read. A lot and very fast. I started reading at about 4 and I never stopped. I read so fast I have to make myself slow down sometimes to savor a very good read. Like  The Wool Omnibus –which I suggest you pay for and download immediately. One of the BEST things I’ve read in the last year.

My favorite possession is my kindle. While I do miss the unadulterated bliss of strolling through a bookstore and emerging heavy laden with far too much (is there such a thing?) reading material–I very much enjoy the idea that i can carry around 3,500 books in something that weighs 8.3 ounces.

So, since B also stands for Back pain that is nearly incapacitating, I’m going to put in some pictures of most of the books in our home

First My Kindle and Night Stand:

Next the Dining room and My office

James’ Office and the main bathroom (the others are too messy to show, seriously)

I guess you could say we are….READERS!

  1. Great post, and lovely biblio pics! It’s very hard to part with books, they become part of the landscape of our lives. But I agree, the Kindle makes it easier/neater around the house. Happy A-Zing!

  2. First, love your collection of books.
    Second, I love the Gir hidden in the bookshelve
    Third, I just realized your blog address is Pywacket, which was the name of one of Grandma’s cats when I was growing up. Very cool.
