Private Moments - Sunday 160 - A Give Away

I had a crush on you
That turned into a passionate love affair  
But I cannot seem to remain monogamous
Ah, dear sweet time worn pages 
of my favorite books

  5. Terrific and monogomy and books don't go together. Thankfully, a book won't take you to court and take all your stuff!!!

  6. Brilliant, Joanny, truly brilliant. A beautiful and alluring 160, and one so many of us can relate to - I will never surrender my love for the written word :)

  9. Those words could have come from my fingertips if I hadn't chosen a different direction this week. Nah, that's not true. This is a perfect description of how I feel about my favorite author.

  16. I also love to read, never thought of it as being monogamous. Guess at heart I am just a book slut. Nice 160.

  17. Oh yes, I am such a book whore! So many broken papery hearts left in the wake of my reading frenzy! I really ought to be ashamed!

  19. Ooops
    I thought your ode was to a glowing iPad..
    So many have fallen and can't get up.
    It is not fair to take yr iPad on the subway so everyone will covet it.
    Nor is it fair to offer free iPads by BlogHer sponsors for the drop of yr card in their fish bowls.
    I digress I know, but you started it with the glow...
