I've Been Called A Whore Before, But I'll Own Being A Book Whore


Well it's official, I'm finally a whore.  It's taken a lot of years to practice, but thanks to some wonderful friends, I can now stake claim to that title.

Since it involves books, that makes it even better!  I can now hold my head up high, and proudly proclaim that I am in fact, A Book Whore!

Don't you just love being called a book whore? If I could, I'd send over a case of Veuve Cliquot to make you heady and bubbly all month long :) Congratulations, friend!

Michelle - Thank you kiddo! I think you are awesome. I'm still floating in air right now.

Hey Book Whore!!! We were sworn to secrecy!!! You're pretty awesome!!

Beth said...

Love it!

I especially love that my computer was loading the picture awfully slowly so I only saw the top bit of it and yet it was still oddly appropriate for the title. :)

Michelle (Red Headed Book Child) said...

HA!!!!!! Book whore is THE whore to be!

Ryan said...

Staci - Thank you once again. I can never say how this made me feel.

Beth - Thanks! I think that's part of the reason I chose the picture ;-)

Michelle - I've been the other kind before, this is much more satisfying.... :-)
