A recent look at my TBR pile revealed that it has reached worrying proportions. Actually, it reached worrying proportions some time ago, I’ve just not been looking at it too closely. There’s the shelf *
*by shelf, I mean the book addicts definition of shelf not the dictionary definition of shelf
and then there’s the kindle.
Damn you Amazon one click buying! I read just over 150 books last year (if you want to see what I’ve been reading, you can find me on goodreads). Based on this, it would take me over a year to read everything I’ve got. So I really don’t need to buy any more books right now. I also have a tendency to buy books at random but read in phases, so more often than not I’ve got lots of books I don’t really want to read, and not enough of the sort of book I do want. Rubbish! It’s like having 50 pairs of black tights in August.
So for April, I’ve decided to go cold turkey and not buy a single book. Six days in, and it’s going reasonably well (by this I mean that I haven’t yet succumbed, and I’m only crying 23 hours a day).
As I’m not buying books this month, I’ve decided instead to give away a copy of Once a Bad Girl to a random commenter. Tell me about your TBR pile! I’ll announce the winner on the blog next Friday (12th).
