Bookish Bits

I participated! You should too!

I know it's been ages since I reviewed a book, but I promise I'm reading every chance I get! As such, I've decided that I'm going to unplug tomorrow.

I'm kinda scared about it.

See, I have certain rituals I perform every day without fail. Wake up, check email. Eat lunch, watch DVDs. Wash dishes, listen to audiobooks. Walk near spare bedroom, check RSS feeds. And so forth.

Tomorrow, I'm going to try, try and try again, not to use technology. No computer, no television, no stereo. I'm going to sit and read and nap and catch up with old friends. I'm going to resist the urge to check my email every 10 minutes. I'm just going to unplug.

Or I'm really, really going to try to, anyway.

In other news, I ran across an interesting question over at 52 Books and thought I would pose the same question to my faithful readers (all four of you).

Would you look down on someone (a bit) if you noticed that they had no books in their home?

I thought this was appropriate, especially after hearing David Sedaris at ALA last week say... "Even thought my publisher would kill me, I don't know why people buy books. That's what libraries are for!"

Discuss, post a comment, or post in your own blog and link me. I'm curious what you all think.

T minus 13 hours to unplugging...
