A Book and a Confession
The only thing I have to declare at this moment is that I AM WEAK!
This was not an indiscriminate purchase, plucked from a shelf out of greed...it's a Folio Society publication for goodness sake! Costing the same as a mere paperback there was really nothing to think about. More Pick of Punch will add another layer of knowledge to my education in 20th century authors and is full of just the sort of humour I adore. Flipping through the pages I spied snippets by EM Delafield, PG Wodehouse, Graham Greene, Kingsley Amis, Antonia White and even a bit of Diary of a Nobody. Off to the cash register!
I'm not planning to don a hair shirt or anything and there are no feelings of guilt, I just wanted to share my folly. But just for fun, as of right now, I am going to see how far into 2011 I can go without adding to my bookshelves. It's not that they are groaning, it's to see how disciplined I can be in enjoying the books I already own.
Is anyone entertaining the same idea?
