i’ve made a decision. beginning november 1, i will buy no more books for a period of six months. unless it’s a serious bradbury find, and then i’m kind of obsession-obligated to buy it.
i have spent a ridiculous amount of money and space collecting books. i realized this weekend, as i was cleaning my office, that i have no more storage space for books. so there are stacks and stacks of books lying about.
thus, the decision was made: operation read what I have
my rapidly ever-expanding to be read list will be conquered in the next six months (or at least that stuff on the list that i already own).
so i can go to all the bookstores i want, but i can’t purchase anything. i can peruse goodreads and amazon with reckless abandon, yet my debit card will feel no pain. i will read only the books i own and those i can check out from the library. no more buying books. for six months.
god help me.
