About meI am an avid reader, but unfortunately my taste for purchasing books out paces the speed at which I can read them. The advent of fatherhood has had the expected effect of reducing this personal vice. I simply don't have time to go book shopping much less read them. What books I do manage to acquire have just as much chance of being a children's book as they do being an adult book.
About my libraryThis past summer saw us needing to move to a new house. Fortunately, this has meant more space for book shelves. Moving also gave us the opporutnity to cull the shelves. I ended up taking six or so boxes to Title Wave for trade credit. Book accumulation has slowed overall, much to Amber's satisfaction, although her assessment might not be as optimistic as mine. I remain 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.
