Four, zero, zero

books 2

Books I picked up from the ‘Free Table’ where I work: Four
Cost: Zero
(to state the obvious)
Time I have to read them in the immediate future: Zero

Being an adult, I am frequently reminded, means that there are more and more numbers in your life. Some of these tend to go up (responsibilities, bills, my weight) and some of which are more prone to go down (free time, disposable income, radio stations I have the patience to listen to). On the other hand, I have always tended to stockpile books, so the above configuration is actually kind of par for the course for me. And it’s always nice to have new books waiting when the time becomes available.

Right now I am engaged in some fairly escapist reading, alternating with reading The Trials of Apollo (we are big Rick Riordan fans) to my daughter. I am profoundly grateful that at age of 12-almost-13 she still wants me to read to her.

  1. What an interesting take on numbers; makes me want to see more of your work as a photographer.

    I’ll be following you from now on. Have an amazing day! 🙂

    Love your take on this challenge. Good luck with finding time to read those books. As I get older, I am with you – responsibilities go up and free time goes down. It takes ages for me to finish a book these days, but it is a great feeling when I do so 🙂
