Must... not... look...

I have a stack of books beckoning me, but if I dare stop and look at them (or worse, pick one up!), I will never get anything done today. I have a list a mile long of chores to accomplish (laundry, vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen, etc.), plus that little thing called "school" with the youngest 3. It is taking all my willpower to avoid taking one peek inside the first book in Karen Kingsbury's Firstborn series. I know that if I so much as touch a book that is not part of our school for today, all hope of accomplishing anything is gone. Is there a name for this affliction? (Other than downright laziness... Let's not go there.)

Looking forward to tomorrow, when I will be posting my list of books for the Spring Reading Challenge hosted by Callapidder Days. I've never participated in one of her challenges before. I've never really kept track of the books I read before, either (except for one year in elementary school; I remember we wrote the names of the books we read on little circles and built "bookworms" out of them. I had the longest worm in class; big shock (NOT).). I think this is going to be fun!

Oh, I really want to participate in the Spring Reading Challenge. But I'm so afraid that I'll embarrass myself. I use to read. Real books. Sigh. Maybe it's just the kick I need to jumpstart myself to read again.
