I never finish what I start...

Apparently, committing to blogging everyday is something I cannot do.  Sometimes at the end of the day, I just don't have the energy for it.  It's pathetic, I know.  I hate when I start things and don't finish them. I'm very good at that and I want to change this part of me.  So, as boring as my posts may be, I am going to finish my 30 day project! On to day 12.... Something you are OCD about...

Pretty, pretty organized books

I could write a book about this, but I'll spare you and just choose one.  Even though my "career" as a bookseller has been over for about 6 or 7 years, I still harbor one habit.  I cannot go into  any bookstore anywhere and not start straightening books. They could be on shelves or tables, it doesn't matter.  I have this urge to fix them and make them all organized and pretty. Once I start, it's hard to stop. I just have to keep going.  It's a sickness really. Cary has to intervene and tell me to stop.  Do any of you former booksellers have this habit? I need help...

Yes, I do it too!!! Actually, I'll do it in other stores, as well, but especially bookstores or at the library. I've found myself re-alphabetizing dvds at the library, even...and I feel immense guilt if I pick up an item at a store, change my mind, and put it back in the wrong place, like I'm a really horrible person. :D
