The Secret Life of Objects by Dawn Raffel
If your family has ever accused you of hoarding (cough, cough) this book will keep you from feeling all alone in your tendency to hang on to sentimental possessions. Written as short descriptions of the author's objects and their history, it is easy to read a few minutes at a time.

I found a used copy of one I haven't read by Susanna Kearsley. I have a lot to get done today, so I'm holding out starting this one as my reward.
