I have a problem with commitment. You would think after years of experience, trying new things, schedules, lists, it would be easier, but here is the sad truth - are you ready for it????
I read six books at a time.
For some reason I cannot seem to commit to one book at a time. I have tried. Generally I will get most of the way through one book and then decide to start another one while I finish that one. Or I justify it by telling myself that they are on two totally different topics. The current list is:
Romancing Your Child's Heart
The Ragamuffin Gospel
Confessions of a Reformission Rev.
The Gentle Art of Domesticity
Breakthrough (a health book)
The Tightwad Gazette
I don't really get bored with them, I just tell myself that I can do two at once and then it turns into three at once, then four....... sooner or later I finish them all, get exhausted and don't pick up a book for two weeks. This is my pattern. I feel it's unhealthy. I think I underestimate my time on this earth to read books. It's as if I think I will only be here for a few more years and we have SO many books I've never read that I need to gorge myself on them.
I think John's problem is worse. John is a book hoarder. He buys books ALL the time, but rarely actually reads them. HA! I just called you out, babe! This results in even more books at our house that I feel I must read someday, so I'll just start this one too.... oh, Sheparding a Child's Heart looks good, maybe just a few pages to see what it's about..... This C.S. Lewis book has been calling my name, wonder what it's about, let's read the first few pages.......Green (Ted Dekker) finally came out after so many years, I wonder if it's as good as the others..... and so it goes.
