Book buying ban!!!

I have to stop buying books, I have around 580 on my TBR, to be fair the majority of them are on my Kindle, but the stack of unread books in my room is threatening to squash me flat.


my physical TBR

But I can’t help, there are still so many books that I wasnt, I still have book tokens to use and they are burning a hole in my purse. I have an addiction, the feel of crisp new pages, the smell of the book!

I can’t stop, so I’m if I order a book from an online retailer I am going to leave it in the packaging and try and decimate the giant, looming piles of books by my bed.

Of course when I open them, the pile will grow again, but I am hoping that the sight of so many unopened boxes of magic will inspire me to stop buying new ones.

Of course I still have to avoid the book aisle in the supermarket and the various bookshops that I haunt in town, so I don’t think it will work but I have to try.


I guess the best way to get the TBR down is to get reading.

See you on the flip side!!!
