I am addicted to books. I cant walk into barnes and noble without buying something. never thought of myself as all that impulsive. I am (supposed to be) the model of control.
Patient as melting ice in antartica.
Calm to the extreme.
Calm like a bomb maybe....
books i am currently in the process of reading, or another way to look at it, books that have a bookmark from where i left off....
