Mary's Books

I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.

I really like this quote because it speaks to keeping the clutter contained and at a minimum. No matter how hard I try to contain clutter, it seems to outwit me. I would have yarn and books and movies and photo albums, but my kids like their toys, yet (some of which are collector items) and there are many other things that are just overwhelming. I know one day I will be able to rid myself of some of the clutter and just get down to things that bring me happiness.
