Isn't it ironic?

Do you want to hear something I think is pretty funny?

I'm in a bookclub.

Now, I realize that in and of itself isn't all that humorous.  But the fact that I'm not much of a reader makes it pretty ironic.

And it's not that I don't like to read.

It's just that I'm more addicted to watching TV than reading a book.

When I was little and lived in Arkansas, we lived a few miles from the public library. I won't take a guess since I will guess something silly like 10 miles and it will really be something like a half mile.

The library allowed each card holder to check out 10 books at a time.

Each time we went, my mom and each of my siblings would check out 10 books.

I would end up reading all of mine by the time we got home.

And so, perhaps the reason I don't read too much now is that I don't want to read all the books in one sitting.

Because that would be like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife.

I love the Alanis Morrisett references.
