Good morning!!! I think Sunday morning is my favorite of the week. Scott and I always make breakfast together on Sundays and it's usually a morning to be a bit lazy.
You will be proud to know that I've started the Great Bookshelf Overhaul (I'm looking at you who said end of January was quite ambitious...). As I've been spending time with my books, and trying to find some to part with, I've also started thinking about characteristics of the book obsessed.
You Know You're Book Obsessed When:
You highly recommend books that you haven't read yet because so many other bloggers loved them.
One of your greatest fears is not being able to read everything you want to in your lifetime.
Turning the pages of a book is one of your greatest comforts.
You've hugged a book...more than once.
The joke about the person who was crushed to death by his bookshelves--that could totally be you.
You see an awesome movie preview and know you have a to read the book first.
Your literary crush is so very real.
You dread being seated next to someone chatty who will interrupt your public transportation reading.
You've cried in public while reading your book--and you didn't care.
How to categorize your books is a serious dilemma.
You've learned the art of multitasking while listening to audiobooks.
You follow book awards like others follow movie awards.
You've bought a book you already owned because you forgot you had it.
You are never ever ever without a book.
Added from the comments:
You plan your day around your reading (Jenny)
You add more books to your library holds list, even though you already have more checked out than you could possibly read before they are due (Lisa)
You've thrown a book across the room (CB James) - though the rest of us hope that he does so gently!!!
You call in sick to work so you can stay home and read (Softdrink/Jill)
You know you're book obsessed when you plan trips around author events (BermudaOnion)
You've been known to smell a new book (Laura)
You give someone an incredulous look when someones tells you they don't read (Kay)
What do you have to add to the list?

Looking Forward to Next Week
**I've started drafting a rather lengthy post on postpartum depression--if I can finish then I'll post this week. Not sure if I should break it up into two posts or not.
**For you Quilters: I found a tutorial series that I'm going to be sewing along with (or at least attempting). The tutorials is for Solstice Stars. Let me know if you're interest and we can give each other mutual support!
**On Saturday for weekend cooking I'm going to try to post about my Operation Use My Kitchen Stuff - First up is the crockpot!! Not sure what else...
A Note on Blogger's New Threaded Comments: I have installed the threaded comments but I don't plan to personally use them. I have a system for responding to comments and even though it sometimes takes me a day or two to respond, I've been better! But because I can only respond to comments maybe once a day, I don't want to junk up your inboxes with replies. So, I'll continue to respond the same way for now, but the threaded comments will be there for anyone else's use. Maybe I'll end up just switching back to the old way...
Hope you're all having a delicious Sunday. What's on the agenda for you? I'm counting on lots of snuggles this afternoon with Elle--even if I have to steal those snuggles! ;)
