SCENARIO #2: BOOK BORROWING (REBELLION OF THE TBR PART 1)
SCENE: You are in the library and you are bored out of your brain cells. You desperately want to look at books or read SOMETHING but you have no book on you. You browse the shelves looking for something that catches your eye. Anything! A book title… a spine… a well-known authors name. Until you browse the shelfs for so many books you want to read them all. You read blurbs wonderous and curious about the stories until in your hands you have enough books to give you muscular biceps. Struggling to carry books you walk to the librarian to borrow.
“These are a lot of books!” The librarian says looking over your giant stack
You try to recover your breath. You don’t exercise much so obviously carrying this book stack is HARD WORK! “I… *huff* … know”
“You still have 4 books that you have borrowed and overdue are you sure you want to borrow this many”
JUST LET ME BORROW THEM you’re about to scream out you are still filled from your small book borrowing rebellion. You told yourself you won’t borrow more and you even promised your family too but on a whim you decided you needed them in your hands. You thought to yourself “Well, I was bound to break that rule anyway might as well go off with a lot of books than just one”
“Yes I’m sure I am ready to tackle this small pile!” and with that you take your stack to your locker. Your hand hurting from carrying this giant weight. When you arrive at your locker your best friend looks at you and your pile. “Not again”
Four weeks later, you returned your books back to the library ready for another stack and another defiance of your ever growing TBR.
