Thirty-five, not counting the ones that I started and didn't finish (an illustrious list including Lolita, Anna Karenina, and the Bible). :)

Fifty-five, not counting the seven that I started and didn't finish for one reason or another (Confederacy of Dunces because really? I thought it was awful and ditto for Catcher in the Rye).

And there are at least fifteen in my bookshelves. One of these days....

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
