You Know You Are A "Book-a-holic" When...

1. You recognize all but one of Challies' covers.
2. You own a LibraryThing lifetime membership.
3. You organize your book shimpments around your vacations.
4. You have a book fund in your monthly budget.
6. Your idea of a good date is to puruse through a bookstore.
8. You visit the conference bookstore between each session.
9. You give books for birthday and Christmas presents.
10. You measure the value of purchaces by how many books you could buy with the same amount of money ("That pair of shoes will cost me about what the new Schreiner volume would").

Notice the picture. That is about as close as you will see John Piper to the "Left Behind" series.

I didn't notice that before. That's great.

Justin, just curious, which book cover of Challies couldn't you recognize? I was stumped on #2. Though as soon as someone says it, I'm going to slap myself...

Yeah, I spend way too much time staring at my bookshelves...

Ha!!! Where is this pic from?

The Piper pic is from a thrift store. His wife posted it on the blog a while back.

I didn't recognize the McLaren book (#19 I think). I had never see that book before. After a little research, I found it.

This is very funny and sounds a bit too familiar! Thanks to Justin's hint I found all the book covers, but didn't win the prize. And I had already begun daydreaming about the WTS selections I would make. Oh, well. I'll just have save in other ways -- Groceries or books? Bone for Lucy or books? Tank of gas or a dozen books?

Who thinks Justin needs to add "Lord of the Rings" to his library?
