A is For Abibliophobia

I’m nuts, must be, because I’m actually heading into the A to Z April Blogging Challenge, you know where I have to blog from A to Z for the whole month. Yikes! Right in the midst of getting my memoir, Loveyoubye ready for publication with She Writes Press! (I blogged about it here.) Believe it. Well, I’m going to try. And just so’s you know, this is the first thought I’ve given to it–well other than signing up a few weeks ago (must’ve had a few cocktails). I’m tapping Dr. Robert Beard, AKA Dr. Goodword’s, book, The 100 Funniest Words in English. I’ll see how long that lasts and then, hey, maybe I’ll switch to something else. Just know that it’s good for me to do this, like a tablespoon of castor oil-good, because otherwise I’ll obsess over the publication of Loveyoubye.

Misc 026Abibliophobia – The fear of running out of reading material.

I have this phobia. To prove it, check out the stack above; it’s beside my bed and sways every time there’s an earthquake. The top two books are Sight Hound, by Pam Houston, and The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield, which I’m reading at the same time as Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn which is on my Kindle. I have a love hate thing going on with the Kindle. It’s “unfriendly,” if you know what I mean, but it’s an abibliophobia’s dream is it not?
