lol as soon as I finish cooking for the family I hop on the comp for a few hours then I go back to reading. I've taken to reading on my PDA since the light bothers my fiance. He just shakes his head and says I need to get out more. I mean hello isn't that something he should be doing for me. We're so not on the same schedule since he works days and I work nights and our weekends are for family day out and *gasp* football. He should be glad I read or we'd be fighting for the TV. LOL

I know I am a book addict because I if I see books, I end up buying some, no matter how many I have!

I was in heaven this past weekend. I found out about a library sale from a link on another post. booksalefinder.com. I went to one and they gave you a shopping bag to fill up( way up) for $3.00. I filled up 2 bags with 59 books!! I am addicted. LOL!!


message 10: by Yz the Whyz, Moderator (new)

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 8919 comments I noticed this about myself...If I'm not reading, I'm online talking about books, and finding more reasons to read more books...LOL..

Wow...Cheryl..59 books...I can feel myself salivating...*wipe drools off mouth*...LOL..



Malena (thefieryheartNZ) | 72 comments I'm right with you Yz! Unfortunately I can't read at work but GR helps me get my fix.


Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~ (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejael) Cheryl - that is mind blowing. If I got that deal i would have been doing a little dance outside of that library.


Cheryl (cheryllaflammegmailcom) | 86 comments LOL!! It was a find!I first went to a library sale in my town. I only had 30 min. I bought hardbacks for $2.50 and paperbacks for $.10. I thought that was great. Then I drove 30 min away to the other sale and when they handed me a bag... It was like the best chocolate and a glass of Merlot. I was in heaven!!. They had such a great selection.

Plus, at that price I picked a few books from authors I have yet to read.

Like I said totally addicted!! LOL!

I am going to be addicted to library sales now.UGH!!

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 8919 comments Welcome Lori! About time you showed up..LOL...


Moderatrix Lori  (ModeratrixLori) LOL Yz. I do have a job ya know :) And all of these books to read because of your fun challenges!


Nichole (Dirty H) (DirtyH) I'm laughing at how familiar a lot of this sounds...
I too am on goodreads all day at work because I can't read and suffer withdrawals, and I too used to watch TV every night and have now given it up (almost) completely.

Birthday: May 5
Favorite Color: Black/Gray/Green
Favorite Food: Anything really really bad for me (and super processed)
First Romance Novel Read (that you can remember): Dark Lover by JR Ward (I guess I read Twilight first, but I don't really classify that strictly as romance, even though the love story is the most important part. Twilight did lead me to seek out other vampire fiction, though, which led me to Ward.)
Favorite Romance Genre: PNR
Finished the line: I know I'm a book addict because - *see above


message 28: by Yz the Whyz, Moderator (last edited Jan 13, 2009 12:20PM) (new)

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 8919 comments Welcome Nichole!

I'm worse than you guys...I don't even own a TV anymore. I just rationed my consumption of TV shows by getting them on DVD from Netflix and just watching them on my laptop. That is if I can break away from reading...or hanging out here with you, guys.


Malena (thefieryheartNZ) | 72 comments I've stopped watching TV too. Books are far more satisfying.


♥Tricia♥ (WickedEnchantment) | 407 comments I agree about the TV thing.

Exceptions are the shows I like to watch but I DVR those so I can watch them whenever. Usually when I am watching them though I have a book in hand and the show is second to me reading ROFL.

Favorite Color: Red
Favorite Food: Fresh bread
First Romance Novel Read (that you can remember): Do Mills and Boon count :) Highland Velvet - Jude Devereaux
