The Overflow of Books

  I have been on a bit of a book binge lately. I have ferociously read close to seven books over the last five days and when I am not reading I have been buying new books to read.

I have tried to make the switch to e books but there is just something so comforting when I am holding the book in my hands. As a result books are everywhere and I mean everywhere in my house. There has got to be a better way.

I was wondering around the Internet when I came across this under “unique bookshelves”. It might just be perfect. I can’t think of a better place to read and set up a library then in a room filled with large windows and books around those windows. After all books are a window to another world.

What does your dream library look like? 

Wandering With Kerouac

It wasn’t too long ago that I did a post about On The Road by Kerouac. The stylistic approach and the sense of adventure while not glorified spoke to me in a way no other book had before. I have a feeling that as the summer approaches I might read my work through all of his works.

They say the more you read after the better you write, although I will admit sitting down to write has been a struggle lately for any number of reasons.

Have you ever read a book by one author and then just been sucked into reading everything they wrote? If so who?

For the Kerouac fans, which book should I pick up next?
