Is Your Book Addiction Ruining Your Financial Future?

This tongue-in-check article from The New Yorker playfully considers how our addiction to books could be robbing us of a secure financial future. Those of us who would seriously consider blowing the grocery budget on a shopping spree at a bookstore will find it particularly amusing.

Someone besides God knows me way too well. Scary. Looking over my shoulder for Big Brother now.

Years ago we moved into a new house. My darling husband thought he had a brillient idea for emptying the backend of the truck filled with boxes of my books--he opened a window in the house and tossed them through so he wouldn't have to carry the heavy things. I think my heart had to be jumpstarted again. I love my books!

Abundant blessings,
Jenny Cary

I've reverted to library books again, too. Just can't afford to buy everything I want to read these days. Of course, I buy them for my kids, though. Hey, what's up with that?? :-D

I either get books from author friends, or I use the library!
