I have a pile of books from the library I’m been slowly working on. And I refuse to return any unread so I keep renewing them. I mean, this has been my project all spring. It was a serious mountain. And just as it started to be gone, I went back and checked out another mountain. Seriously though, I love to read.

My goal was to get through the pile by the time I started school. On the 29th. Of this month. With a good dozen books left. Not happening unless I read a book a day. Which I have done, let me assure you. But that’s usually at the expense of sleep and kinda my family. And Pat hates when I do that. He was pissed off when I discovered Twilight and read all 4 in 4 days. I got a combined 12 hours of sleep during that. But I couldn’t put them down.

And I’m like that with a good book. I can’t put them down.

The problem is, not all of the books I grabbed have been good books. Some of them I struggle to want to pick up. Logically I’d move on to the next book.

Logically. Let’s examine that word.



1.according to or agreeing with the principles of logic: a logical inference.
2.reasoning in accordance with the principles of logic, as a person or the mind: logical thinking.
3.reasonable; to be expected: War was the logical consequence of such threats.
4.of or pertaining to logic.



1.the science that investigates the principles governing correct or reliable inference.
2.a particular method of reasoning or argumentation: We were unable to follow his logic.
3.the system or principles of reasoning applicable to any branch of knowledge or study.
4.reason or sound judgment, as in utterances or actions: There wasn’t much logic in her move.
5.convincing forcefulness; inexorable truth or persuasiveness: the irresistible logic of the facts.

Does any bit of that sound like me?

Btw, I’ve never started a book I haven’t finished. I’m not changing that now.
