Summer Reading

Lately I’ve been reconnecting with my love of reading. And by reconnecting, I mean – finding time.

I’m also discovering that I have a bit of a hoarding problem when it comes to books.  I blame my dad – who has rooms full of books in our childhood home, and stacks of magazines that he tears interesting articles out of.  I’ve picked up the article-tearing habit too, although I’ve yet to figure out what to do with all these torn out sheets.  It’s a bit of a mess.

I still have a few boxes of stuff from when I was a kid at my parents’ place – and at least half are books.  Our little apartment with it’s one lonely tiny bookshelf just couldn’t handle it.  Not to mention the fact that I keep buying more.

With the impending demise of Google Reader, I’ve been forced to organize my digital bookshelf as well (and all those tagged articles that I don’t know what to do with – see above re: magazines).  Since I’ve had Google Reader for almost 5 years now, it’s interesting to go back and see what I tagged as interesting so long ago, and see how my tastes and interests have changed.  It’s kind of why I love bookshelves too – they’re like big catalogs of your interests, passions, and daydreams.  As much progress as I’ve made on this digital culling, however, I have a feeling that I’m not going to get through everything by July 1st.

Such is life, because I’m pretty sure I’m not going to make it back to those magazine clippings either – but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop reading.
