On buying too many books

If you’re going to the AAR/SBL conference this week, then be sure to check out Dan Reid’s helpful list of 10 things to say to your spouse upon arriving home with all those new books. I like this one:

“Look! I’ve taken care of a lot of our Christmas shopping!” (When he/she tells you that no one on the Christmas list wants those books, you act disappointed and rejected, and absorb them into your library.)

Don't forget:
"Those? Oh, I bought those with ... my continuing ed money from the church. Yeah, that's it."
