Sunday Salon ~ with a pun alert

It is always book o'clock wherever I am, quite aside from where the hands of the clock happen to be.  Does that make me a bookie?  Or does it mean that I am a bookaholic?  Click HERE for "Twelve Signs You Are a Bookaholic."

I would wear this mask proudly ---------->>>>>>>

Word of the Day

bookaholic / book·a·hol·ic / noun = a compulsive book buyer; a habitual and prolific reader; a lover of books.  Example:  "I don't know any bookaholics who want to overcome their addiction."

Mornings with Jesus 2017: Daily Encouragement for Your Soul ~ by Guideposts, 2016, devotions

In this book, you can read and reflect on one devotion each day that will encourage you.  Lifting up their voices in heartfelt gratitude, eleven women, including bestselling authors Tricia Goyer and Cynthia Ruchti, consider the character and teachings of Jesus and share how He enriches and empowers them daily.

Book off my shelves

This is another book (unread) that called to me as I walked past the shelves.  I bought it on sale on Nov. 10, 2017, intending to start reading it in the following year.  I forgot before January, so I started a year of reading today, October 17.  (The dated receipt was still in it, marking the one day I probably read.)

about our lives, our books, and what we have been reading.

There is no denying that I am a bookoholic. If there is a Category 5 Bookoholic, I would have to label myself as such. I especially love this one: "If you stacked up all the books on your To-Be-Read pile, someone would have to send in a search-and-rescue crew to dig you out of your house." Thank you for sharing this list.

I did the same thing you did with the last book of devotionals that I started. Why wait until January 1?!

I am definitely a bookoholic and have no intention of changing 🙂.

The Guideposts devotional looks good. Reminds me to check my shelves for a devotional...

Have a good week!

I realize my Instagram feed is full of people posting what book they are reading, pictures of libraries, and bookaholic memes. All very satisfying.
