My addiction

Every night, I try to read before bed. Sometimes, it's a few pages and sometimes it is a whole book:) Reading helps me clear my mind from the day's events. When I was a little kid, if I woke up because of a bad dream, I would often just lay in bed and create a story in my mind until I fell asleep again. Because of this addiction, my bed stand is probably the most cluttered piece of furniture I have. I switch from book to book, from story to story and some, I read over and over again because I love them so much. Lord of the Rings is one of those for me, as well as To Kill a Mockingbird, The Myst Triology, and several others.

Tonight's picture is my pile of books by the night stand. I've organized them a bit to make them look more "pretty", but on any given night, they will be strewn across the floor, dog eared, upside down, etc. You get the idea!

I guess we have the same addiction. Not a bad one as far as I'm concerned. Nice idea for a photo.
