I’ve said before that my blog is aptly named. It’s called Feed Your Fiction Addiction for a reason. But I wonder sometimes, is it actually possible to be addicted to books? And can that be a bad thing?
Just yesterday (after I’d already planned out this post), my thirteen-year-old son insisted that I spend way too much time reading, blogging and editing. Apparently, he’s been feeling ignored! Now, I did remind him that I do plenty with and for the family (and that the only thing he really wants to do is play video games – my husband plays with him, but I’m just not all that interested), but he has a point. Sometimes a really good book can have me plenty distracted! And, of course, now that I’m editing, I don’t just hang around the kids or play as often as I used to. I struggle between feeling guilty about that and feeling happy that I have something truly my own after so many years of being a stay-at-home mom. I guess the key is balance, but that can be hard to find.
Am I the only one who has a hard time balancing books and REAL life? Somehow I doubt it. I thought it would be fun to put together this little quiz to find out! Let me know your results in the comments!
