So Many Books

I´m hosting this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, and I´ve picked Books/Reading as my theme. When the evenings get longer, it´s a good idea to make a cup of tea, put a blanket on your knees and take a book you can really dive in ... I´m always reading three or four books at a time, a lightweight one for the way to work, a thick novel for leisure time at home, an art book for getting inspiration, a nonfiction book about anything that´s going around in my head, and so on ... So I´m reading about 35 books each year (I´m only counting the novels, not the art books and nonfiction books).
What about you? How many books do you read per year? If you´re an avid reader, please illustrate your hobby and play with us this week!
For my sample card, I´ve used rubber stamps from VivaLasVegaStamps, Zettiology, and Darkroom Door, plus a book and a clock that I don´t remember where they are from.

Sehr schön, Marion!
Als Kind habe ich mir immer gewünscht, in einer Schloss-Bibliothek eingeschlossen zu werden... Jetzt habe ich zwar viel mehr Zeit zum Lesen, tue es aber nur im Bett. Doch im Sommer lese ich auch gerne am Tag, natürlich draußen. Liebe Grüße von Ulrike

What a fantastic challenge for the Sunday Postcard Art, Marion! I love the stamps you have chosen...and the combination is quite profound. That sweet wee mouse made me smile, of course! I am not such an avid reader as you, but I do enjoy a good book or some poetry from time to time with my glass of wine! Thanks for the challenge!
