    Small changes lead to big ones! I've been regularly waking up before my alarm but it's just TOO COLD for me to get out of bed. The heat comes on at 6AM and I usually wake right around then. It might be from the radiators clanging though . Over the weekend, I'm going to experiment with getting up without an alarm. This means making sure I have slippers and my footie pajamas very close to the bed so I can wrap up as soon as I get out from under the covers.

    I am out of space for books and am actually considering moving all my paper books into storage and going almost 100% kindle. It would free up room in the house and cut down on places to store dust. That said, I tend to judge houses without visible books less than favorably and would hate to think less of myself every time I come through the front door.

    I tend to be a fantasy, sci-fi, horror (in frequently) reader and should pick up some non-fiction. I just have a hard time finding much non-fiction of interest, well, of enough interest to read a whole book as opposed to an article or three.

    My resolution to be nicer is working out so far. It wont last.

    So far I am keeping the 'be a gentleman outloud' resolution. What happens in the mind stays in the mind

    I need to do a 'write every day' resolution. I have done it so far but no consistent word count. I need to set a daily word count.

    Looking around the den this morning, I realized that all 3 bookshelves are lined up 2-deep with books. There is literally no room at the inn. If I'm in there and we get a good temblor... it was nice knowing you all...

    My husband used to complain about my romance novels, now he complains about my "blogging".

    Gee, I hope that doesn't apply to journal responses.

    I can't imagine you not being nice, but my husband calls me "pollyanna". :P

    I think you are very wise to increase your sleep time. Being well-rested will help every other aspect of your life.

    The first thing I do when I am at someone's house, is check out their books. Just basic reconnaissance. I can't imagine asking to see their E-reader, list, though. Hmph, I thought technology was supposed to make life easier!

    I don't make resolutions anymore. I don't see the point to them to be honest. I just figure make the change and just do it.

    The only thing that my husband seems to have complaints on me for is my lack of folding and putting away laundry. I HATE doing laundry.

    I have done away with so many of my books and am about 95% kindle. No room for books in my small house.

    My house has no room for books either. The only books you'll find are the ones my kids read - Dr. Seuss, Disney Baby, etc., and most of those are going to find a new home soon. Too many books in our house. We haven't even read 75% of them...

    My books are all packed in a rubbermaid tote and stored in the garage. Except those few cookbooks I have.

    We're a paper family. We have a fair number of reference manuals on the server, but pretty much everything else is paper. We're at 5.5 (5-6 ft and 1-3 ft) bookshelves and REALLY need to buy at least two more. With the exception of the 6 ft cookbook shelve that's only 85% full, all the shelves are double stacked. I need to pare them down, but I'm also aware that won't happen. Even if I've never read it or didn't particularly care for it, getting rid of a book is akin to getting rid of a precious heirloom. Especially if it's an old, dog eared, beat to shit paperback I've owned since middle or elementary school.
