I’m Gina & I’m addicted to buying books – and, well, collecting books! Oh, my, I need help!!
I buy books when they’re on sale.
I buy books when I think they may disappear (especially, eBooks since I generally already have them in hard format!)
I download classics that I think I may want to read in the future – I never do but I might eventually want to read them, right?
Hmm, my sister-in-law mentioned this weekend that I might have OCD… I laughed & responded ‘Ya, think?!?!’ She’s always tries to be so tactfull! Yeah, doesn’t work so well at our house!!
I read this morning that Tara at 25 Hour Books is offering to ‘help support those of you who want to limit your book buying tendencies and I ask for your support in return‘. I’ve decided to join her and stop buying! Not only am I planning to stop buying but I’m going to stop downloading things I never plan to read anyway. And, I’m going to start only getting the book I want when I want it – not when I think I might want to read it at a later date. ONLY WHEN I’M READY TO READ IT.
Also – and this is huge!!! I’m going to start getting rid of my hardcopy collection. I have paperbacks & hardbacks galore so away they go!! If any of you do not share my compulsion and would like to obtain some of my books go to my goodreads page and let me know what you want – if you’ll pay the shipping I’m willing to get rid of most of these.
So, will you join us? Stop over and visit Tara at 25 Hour Books & Join in on the fun!
