Today I learned what a book-spine poem was..
At first, I wanted to gather all the books I’ve recently read and pile them together. But then I thought, why not just snap a picture of the ones that are already on my bed-side table. And so that’s what I did.
These are the books that I am currently reading. And if you are wondering -yes, I do go back and forth between different books at the same time. Is that weird? Please, someone, tell me I’m not alone in this..
It’s like hitting pause while watching Netflix when you need to use the washroom or grab another drink. I do the same with books. I read a chapter, take a break, read another chapter from a different book and so on. I sometimes read two chapters from the same book, but you get the point.
I honestly don’t know why I do this, even though I know how and when it started.
Peterborough, ON – that’s where I attended University. It all started because I didn’t want to stop reading the books that I read for pleasure only because I had to go through different readings to complete my assignments. So, I guess for me, this was a way of balancing school work and reading for pleasure.
Interestingly enough, I have made it a habit.
