Confessions of a Book Fiend

This cartoon is courtesy of Incidental Comics

This comic is to all my bibliophile friends out know who you are...because your READING a BLOG for goodness sake (which means you probably have scattered and/or stacked books around you as you read this...trying to justify your reasons for NOT fitting the overly realistic morbid caricature of this cartoon)!  Some illustrations are just a little too close to home!  I sure hope my wife doesn't read this blog post ;-).


  1. Too late....I read it. :D
    And you are VERY RIGHT--a little too close to home. I do promise, however, to not attack you with a knife from behind. I will come up with something far more clever than that. ;)

  2. I guess that's the price I'll have to pay for a wife who reads voraciously herself (especially historical fictions where who knows what kind of craziness goes on among those Amish/WW2/Settler kinds of character novels ;-) ). Perhaps if I had secretly worked this post into something about Hebrew discourse there's a thought...

  3. great cartoon. Where did you find it?

  4. I was actually first alerted to the cartoon because I follow the blog "Ketuvim" of Jim Getz who pointed me to the source Incidental Comics at

    you mean there are others out there?

    my favorite quote is by Erasmus ... "if I get money I buy books, if there is any left over I buy food" ... now there is a man after my own heart


  6. Now that is a great quote Dinah! :-)
