About meI am an avid reader, but unfortunately my taste for purchasing books out paces the speed at which I can read them. It is probably a good thing that I live in Alaska where my proximity to fine used bookstores is extremely limited. Mail order is my main savior/enabler.
About my librarySebastian's room is starting to run out of shelve space. I have already started culling some of his 0-3 books that he just isn't interested in and/or I don't think they are really up to snuff anyway. I might need to figure out some other options in there. Book accumulation in the rest of the house has slowed, much to Amber's satisfaction, although her assessment might not be as optimistic as mine. Still, I am committed to reading more of the books I already own than increasing the number of unread books in the house. This is easier said than done of course.
