A slightly late Happy New Year!!!
So I have never really ‘do’ New Years Resolutions much now. However, this year there is one New Years Resolution I am making – I am not going to buy any books for a year!
This is going to be a challenge. A real challenge. But it is something I need to do. Many book bloggers buy a lot of books. Many book bloggers have TBR piles that could last them for years. I am one of these people.
As you will have seen I have decided to attempt two TBR pile challenges. I am hoping that this will allow me to focus and get through some of the books that I already own. Books are there to be read. If you are buying books faster than you can read them, what is the point? Yes, I have got to that stage. My shelves are lined with beautiful books, but I don’t know the beauty that lies between the covers.
When I am tempted to buy a book I am going to read this list of reasons NOT to buy the book(s).
- I don’t NEED the book, I have plenty to read at home.
- I can’t afford to buy the book(s).
- There are more important things my money needs to be spent on.
- There is no justification to buy new books.
- I am running out of space in my flat!
So what are your tips to help me achieve this goal? Are you doing a book buying ban for part of this year?
Let me know!
