Thought I'd talk about books. I am a voracious reader. I've been known to read 3-4 books at one time, and devour 700+ page books in a few days. I read fast. (And, yes, I retain it all). I figure it this way: I don't think I'll ever be able to read my entire TBR pile in a lifetime, so I will read as many as I can as often as I can and see what happens. (Yeah, we'll see how that goes. I've got bookcases and shelves filled with actual paperbacks and hardcovers, at least half that I haven't read yet, and at least 2,000 ebooks on my Kindle. And that is growing daily).
Like Siri, I have fond thoughts about this time of year. Not just because hints of autumn are starting to show up, and there's the promise of hot chocolate and golden leaves and peppermint-flavored drinks. Not just because it's back to school time and I can hoard notebooks for cheap.
But because it is library book sale time.
Happy September! Here in Toronto, Canada, we've just come off a sweltering Labour Day long weekend...but even still, whenever the wind blew, there was the faintest of chills in the air. Autumn is coming. The biggest sign of this: all across Canada, Labour Day means back to school.
Mind you, nobody in my household actually attends or works at a school. But I've never lost the sense that September marks a new year, a new beginning. (I celebrate January 1, too. Why not have an opportunity for two fresh starts a year?) Now is the time to step out of vacation mode (or "spend the glorious summer weekends pretending you're on vacation" mode, as the case may be) and move into Getting Stuff Done.
