What is a book addict you may ask? It is the person who could never have too many books. There house looks like the local library only less neat. There are various shelves and stacks of books all over their homes.
The person who may need to join a Books Anonymous meeting is the one who breathes deeply of the aroma coming off those old, vintage volumes. He loves the smell of leather that old books provide. He thrills to gold end papers or original cut edges.
The book addict would rather read than eat and without limits on his spending for books, might be faced with such a choice. Remembering, one must pay things like mortgages and buy food at least for the kids before books is tough on a book addict. Trying to budget his book habit is a constant challenge. Thank goodness for thrift stores and the bargain tables at new book stores.
The average book addict cannot escape the book shelves without several purchases. If he can find those unmistakable bargains on hard to find tomes, he will be quick to do so. He sometimes is hard to stop when books are what he shops.
Some of us really hope that Books Anonymous comes into existence because some of us really could use a sponsor.
