My wife has long ago accepted being married to a man of books!
She has always been kind about my book issue. Although she has threatened to send me to bookaholics anonymous! But, from time to time, she collects little stacks of books throughout the house and encourages me to take them to my office. The problem is that my office shelves are full (and I gave 600 books to our church library recently).
I doubt this will be as big an issue for younger pastors with access to so many books via the internet. But most of my ministry years were pre-internet so the habit is formed.
Although I read a lot of on-line resources, there is still something special about picking up a book. The picture here is my night-time reading stack.
So much to read and so little time!
