Today's Challenge: What is your favorite guilty pleasure (besides blogging)?
Oh my goodness, that would have to be either book-buying or puzzles. I'm not sure I can choose between them.
I love to buy books. I think it's great that I can get books at the library, but I go back to my books again and again the way my hubbie re-watches movies. My Nook is all that saves me from going to green mama hell for wasting paper. I can now buy books without feeling guilty about the trees that were sacrificed for my addiction. And since Nook books cost less than paper books, I can feel a little less guilty about the money I spend, too! Unfortunately, I have a special weekness for antique books and Nook doesn't help with those!
Now about those puzzles. Not only do I print tons of them off of the internet and buy books of them at Barnes & Noble, I lose sleep working them! They cover my bedside table. And heaven forbid someone take my pencils! The whole house has to get in on the hunt to recover them so I can do my puzzles! I have an admission to make, in fact. There have been many nights that I used the flashlight feature on my phone to do puzzles because the lamp might wake my hubbie and then when he does roll over because of the light or movement in the wee hours of morning, I quickly hide my stuff by my side and pretend sleep! I don't want him to know that I stayed up so late just so I could finish a puzzle! Isn't that awful?
