Books A Plenty

As my shopping sabbatical with Corrin winds down, I've started reflecting on what other passions of mine have helped to fill the void that my clothing-shoes-jewelry craze has left behind.
  • Clothing for my son - he's always been the best dressed toddler for miles around, and instead of buying myself clothes, I've been buying him more clothes than he can ever wear. I think a 2nd kiddo may be necessary to justify the clothing expenses alone. 
  • Music - my iPod library has grown quite a bit over the past few months.  My new addiction to Rihanna and return to old-school delights such as Paula Abdul have kept my iTunes account very busy.
  • Books - even though I'm still behind on my 2012 Reading Challenge, it hasn't stopped me from buying books by the armful...well, Kindle-full.  To make myself feel better, I will tell you that most of these were free downloads...but not all of them.  Anyone know if you can create folders on the Kindle?  I think I need monthly folders to organize and plan what I'm going to read and when I'm going to read it.  I've been inspired by over at Flavorwire to get organized:
