Have You Read......?

A recent survey found that on the average household bookshelf there were at least 80 books the owners had not read.  How many do you have?  I think I have more than that.

I don't know what the problem is;  maybe I just like to look at them.  Or as a retired librarian, I like to pretend I have a library.  Or is it just greed?  There is no way I will ever read them all unless (God forbid) I am bedridden for several years.

Why then do I keep buying books?  It is a puzzlement...... Lately I have been buying books I had to read, like books for the book club, or books for Sunday class, or books about Eccelesiastes to help me in my studies.  I yearn for a good book just to enjoy reading!  Know one?
