Friday Wishlist: How About Some More Time

Today I want to tell you about how much I wish for more reading time. Over the holidays I consumed books at an alarming rate and enjoyed every moment of it, but then the kids head back to school and life gets back to normal. Leaving me to cope with the withdrawals of my drug.

More time--that's what I need. More time to read that pile that's forever amassing on my dresser. More time to consume that list of books I have inside of my head.

I once read a book where one of the characters had hidden himself away in a home in the middle of nowhere (hermit style) and just read the books that covered everyone of his walls. Wouldn't that be nice?

My mom told me recently that she couldn't imagine being confined to a bed for a long period of time because she would get bored. Not me, I'd just read until my eyes bled and my head throbbed.

So my wishlist for today is time to read the books I already have:

Arabian Nights
The Curse of the Chalion
The Towers of Midnight

I don't dare add to my list today... because my list is much to long as it stands.

What do you want to read? Link up with us and share those books!

Books in this post:

Ooh - I'm so glad you've got Soulless! I love that book. Love the series, too. I can't wait until you read it and we can talk about it!

Here's my pile of fiction waiting for me to enjoy.

Gateway by Frederik Pohl (discovered this through a science fiction list on (my latest addiction)

Crome Yellow by Aldous Huxley

Selected Short Stories; Maupassant

Don Juan by Lord Byron (I found a copy of the complete work at the charity shop - I've read the first two cantos which are hilarious - now I must read the rest!)

My pile of non-fiction waiting to be read is almost too long...and it'll doubtless be longer soon! :)
