A Very Lame Post Written Because I Feel Guilty For Not Writing Sooner

I spent most of my four-day holiday going through my stuff and deciding what to sell at my carport sale I’m having Saturday. I have about a hundred paperbacks and half that many literature anthologies that I’m selling. Some of these are great books, and I’d love to keep them, but I’m trying to be realistic about it. I don’t want to keep packing these and unpacking them until I’m ninety years old and STILL haven’t read them. Or, I’ve read the books at least once and will never read them again, so why keep them?

Did manage to get to the movie and see “The Devil Wear Prada” over the weekend and I loved it. Meryl Streep made the movie. Anne Hathaway was good, but Streep playing the Boss From Hell completely overshadowed everyone else in the movie. If you haven’t seen it, get thee to a moviehouse now! I also rented "The Producers" - so good! - and "A History of Violence" - excellent, too.

There’s so much I want to write about now, but I don’t have time. Plus there’s a mosquito gnawing at my leg and I must go kill the little sucker.

I am the same way with books. I always have a stack of 2-3 from the library waiting for me to read (or becoming overdue) and others that I've bought or have been given. I keep telling myself I'll get the time to read, but I fill my time with other things. I love reading, so this drives me crazy.

Best of luck with your sale and your upcoming move--and thanks for those movie reviews!

I keep leaving books in different states and even countries (UK) because they are difficult to transport. They are also expensive to replace. I am big fan of libraries. The idea of free books that you don't have to permanently store is one of the best in human history. I have four library books to finish reading tonight before I go back to AZ tomorrow. I think I can manage three.

I saw the Producers twice in London and loved it. Was it really good as a movie?

Can't wait to see the Devil Wears Prada although good luck to me getting my husband to go to that one.
