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.
