Lock me up and throw away the key, I am guilty as charged! Buying books is one of the top pleasures in my life and I'm afraid it always will be (sorry hubby)! I've made an effort this year and have been quite good at not binging on book purchases...most definitely the ARCs I receive help me get my fix. I feign blindness when I walk past a bookstore when it's not a good time to buy something, because once I'm in there you can't get me out! My poor husband feels like he lives in a library, but he's really great about it and humors me.Book Gluttony! Are your eyes bigger than your book belly? Do you have a habit of buying up books far quicker than you could possibly read them? Have you had to curb your book buying habits until you can catch up with yourself? Or are you a controlled buyer, only purchasing books when you have run out of things to read?
Hubby and I were talking about this same subject the other day as I was explaining what a TBR pile is. He says, "oh so, you have what like 20 books that you haven't read in your shelves?" I giggled and said as I walked away "yeah, something like that!". It's actually closer to 200, but who's counting?! He just can't wrap his head around why you would buy a book and not read it right away. Then again I can't fathom why he needs every single Pearl Jam concert on CD either, so I guess we're even =)
My motto: "He who dies with the most books, wins".
