Literary Feast Or Famine

Sometimes, I am rich with books.

I may have two or three books I have bought or been given or lent on hand waiting - good books - and an equal number out from the library that are engaging.  I feel so wealthy in those times.

Other times are like this summer, though, when I feel poor of books (ridiculous, you might say, if ever you have been to my house).

Then, I find only a smattering of sort-of interesting books that I have not read in a whole season - when long explorations through the library shelves produce nothing that really grabs me, when all my wonderful home books are not in the right time-since-I-last-read-them span to be re-read with proper enjoyment.  Such times are hard for me.  Very, very hard.
