The Book In My Wine Rack

Do you have that book that you’re so excited about you can’t bring yourself to started it?

There are books that, for some reason or another, have captured my heart so thoroughly that I eagerly bought them and put them carefully in an honored place and there they sit as I wait for that special occasion when I’ll actually, you know, read them.

It’s like a bottle of wine whose label promises so much refinement you don’t dare open it.

I suppose I often fall victim to saving something for an occation so special it never comes. Or worse, saving something special until it spoils –forgetting that wine was meant to be drunk, books were meant to be read and special occasions are made not found.
