Is it possible to read too much?

I recently signed up for a website called A friend sent it to me. It's a way to keep track of books you have read or intend to read, see what your friends are reading and get reviews on books. There is also lots of book related trivia - for those of you who like that sort of thing.

I sent the site out to some friends and they signed up. One thing they did not realize is that everytime one of your friends posts on the site, you get an email. For someone who reads a lot, that means I post a lot and then of course there's the catching up. I'm sure there's a way to turn off the emails. I don't mind getting the emails, but apparently, my reading buddies do.

In fact, I've come to the conclusion that I must talk too much, about everythign, especially books. And I'm thinking of crawling inside my world of books and staying there. It's not like I've been very good about keeping this blog up to date anyway. And recently, when something really bad happened to me, I realized I had no one to turn to - no one that is that wouldn't find me annoying. I guess that's because my friends are the book characters who accept me for who I am and even though they never call and ask me if I want to have coffee or see or movie - at least I know that don't just like me for when I agree with them or can perform a service for them. OoooooHHHHH - someone's having a lonely pity party. Guess I'd better go check out the self esteem/self help section of the library.

TTFN - at least until I decide whether or not my book opinions or worth sharing.
