For those of you who couldn't understand why I would choose not reading library books as my sacrifice for Lent, this should give you some idea of why I sometimes feel like library books are an addiction for me.
For those of you who don't read the book review blog you can at least now appreciate how eclectic my reading tastes are. (There is one missing from this pile because I left it in my son's car. Oops.)
For those of you who are wondering, yes there are more books in the background. Those aren't library books but I am currently reading them.
Hello. My name is Satia. I am a library addict.

True if you double space. I was 2000 words into writing when I realized that 4 pages for me with my single-spacing-self equals more than 1000 a day.
But here is one thing I wrote today, that doesn't count towards the project itself although it reflects a bit of what I was thinking as I tried to fill the page.
Why is it the sad stories are the ones that come first? I hate that. I wish the happy ones would rise to the surface. But if the sad ones want to be written first, then I must write them and make room for the happy memories to come forward.
For a long time I didn't start this project because every time I would, the most painful and brutal moments presented themselves. I realize, however, that if I don't start it can never be finished.
And isn't it about time I had this realization. Sheesh!

And in this he showed me something small, no bigger than a hazelnut, lying I the palm of my hand, as it seemed to me, and it was as round as a ball. I looked at it with the eye of my understanding and thought: What can this be? I was amazed that it could last, for I thought that because of its littleness it would suddenly have fallen into nothing. And I was answered in my understanding: It lasts and always will, because God loves it; and thus everything has being through the love of God. (183)
