Thoughts on a Monday Morning

I realized how many books I've bought over the last month alone and ... *cough, cough, cough*

Um, yeah.

And I have a horrible habit of buying books and not reading them. It sort of works like this: I buy four, read three, but in the meantime buy several more... and so on. I end up with a lot of books on my TBR list that I haven't got to.

As it stands now there's over 100. :/

I know, that's pathetic.

I decided yesterday that for an entire month I need to step away from buying anything new. The thought has me shaking! ;)

I loaded up all of my TBR yesterday on my iPad and got to work. Two books down, 98 to go. LOL.

I really loved this article on Viola Davis and her wig. In it she talks about her husband:

He said, 'If you want to wear it for your career, that's fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are!'

First of all, she's freaking beautiful. Be-U-Ti-FUL! So, I mean, maybe it's just me and I don't understand the wig thing. I think she looks amazing without it. And why would you want to look like anyone else?!

Second, her husband rocks. 'Nuff said. I love when one spouse empowers the other.

Third, I love the message. It resonated with me. Not that I don't step into who I am. It's just that, sometimes when I'm tired on a Monday morning, it's a nice encouragement to hear. :)

  1. I am thinking I don't want to be published by the Big Six either. I just don't want to deal with their nonsense, quite frankly. I keep hearing horror stories and I'm taking heed of them.

    I haven't read anything that wasn't a classic in a few years, for many of the reasons that you mentioned.

  2. Yup and yup. Have you tried some of the epub first presses? They're really good. I've been quite happy with the quality.
