Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
Why oh why did I sign up for that Half Price Books mailing list? They just sent me coupons for 20-50% off one item for every day next week... and my office is down the street from their flagship store.
Dang it. And I was doing so well at getting through all the TBRs on my living room bookshelves.
