I am addicted!!

Hi, my name is Jess and I am addicted to books. 


I almost get the shakes when I walk into a Borders or down the book aisle of Target.  I love the look, feel, smell, and promise of a new book.  I love to get wrapped up in a story!

This is the current pile of books just waiting for me to crack open their covers:
It's a pretty eclectic collection:
  • fabulously unthought provoking beach reads (Nora Roberts, Danielle Steel, and Lauren Conrad!)
  • books with depth of story (A Thousand Splendid Suns and a few other s that caught my eye)
  • spiritual growth books (Sheila Walsh and Donald Miller)
  • and even an educational book (The Sound of Hope - about auditory processing disorders)
I also should tell you that since I took this photo last week, I bought 5 more books.  I can't stop!!!

Oh, and...then there's this crate of books to read for my Language Arts curriculum next year.


  1. I know EXACTLY what you mean about books!!! I feel the same way. Can't get enough! Kristin Hannah and Elin Hilderbrand are good for beach reads. "The Help" is a great story!

  2. The Donald Miller book is ah-mazing!!!!! I read it in one day because it was, as all his books are, beautiful!

  3. when I saw this post, I knew I was at a good blog. You should see my house; books are taking it over, and I still can't stop buying more!
