My Book Buying Ban

covered in booksSo…confession.  I have a huge obsession (maybe a disease but I’m not willing to go that far yet) with buying books.  I can’t walk into my local bookstores without leaving with at least one book.  That doesn’t sound bad, but I also go through reading slumps throughout the year where I won’t read anything for about a month, so things just start piling up.  First it was 10, then 20, then 30, and you get the point.

For my birthday, my parents got me the Song of Ice and Fire boxed set, and that pushed me over the top.  My pile had reached 50, and that was my cutoff, so I decided to enact a book buying ban.  I am going to restrain from buying books until either the end of July, or my pile is down to 10, whichever comes first.

Oath Bound

With All My SoulSadly that means no new books for me until July, except when Rachel Vincent’s books Oath Bound and With All My Soul come out (May 1 and April 1 respectively), because, let’s face it: every good rule needs an exception. 🙂
