Thanks everyone for the well wishes! Sam, you are exactly right. The thrill of opening a new book is so very addictive. Iliana, new books are tempting beyond all other things. The possibilities contained within their pages is, dare I say, even better than chocolate! Danielle, you help me feel so much better about all of those in progress books. I don't know what I'd do without you! Hi Okie! Nice of you to stop by. Nine is a nice number. I once tried to limit myself to eight by hiding away all but eight of my book marks. But then I started using scraps of paper and other odd bits so I gave up. Cip, thank you. I've been across the bridge a few times, but it is not one I normally take. I live only three miles from work and the only bridge I cross is a very small one over a small creek. Thanks Litlove! Grub is fun Dorothy. I think lunch requires a fun book from now on. Sarah, always happy to contribute to the growth of TBR piles! Brian, you crack me up! I know those gigantic stacks of books to read next, I have several of them myself. Oh Mari, that's a good excuse I have not come up with yet! Thanks for letting me know about it, I am certain I will find an occasion to use it. Ashlee, I usually have ten or m ore books going at once. It's been a long time since I could limit myself to four. Lasting two weeks on your in progress limit is quite impressive! Laura, are you sure that's not my bedside table you're describing? Your accidentally shelved books made me laugh :)

So glad to hear you're okay! But it breaks my heart to think of the victims and their families. I often try to limit my books-in-progress to four, but that flies out the window when I'm at the library or bookstore where I "conveniently" forget. Then when I turn around I have this monstrous pile on my bedside table prohibiting me from seeing the clock or reaching the kleenex! And they all have bookmarks in them! I don't remember doing that? I'll set a few aside which then get "accidentally" shelved with other to-be-read books til one day I pick one up to read it when the bookmark falls out and I realize I must have been reading it before! Huh!?!

"So much for not starting any new books." Oh, how well I know it. :) How many books do you typically read at a time? I've recently limited myself to 4 after one day I found myself with 8+ books going. So far it's been working ... but it's only been about 2 weeks. :)

I love your "excuses" for starting a new book, they sound a lot like mine. One of my favorites is to start a new book because I need something "light" to read at night before I go to bed and am too tired to read one of the "serious" books I'm already reading. I give you permission to use it if you need it :)

I find that I'm sometimes as flighty as a moth on speed. I've got a large To Be Read pile as I set aside books that I want to read after I'm done reading the book I'm currently reading (a map with directions to the clarity of the previous sentence will soon be available at all reputable cake stands). However, I often find mid-book that I will go to the library and come home with gigantic stacks of more books to read or I will go to a bookstore and come home with gigantic stacks of more books to read. *sniff* Like title of your blog says, So Many Books...
