PBS, I've been very good at not buying books unless I absolutely had to and then 2011 hit and all hell broke loose. I don't know what happened. It's not like I suddenly have room on my shelves because I have way less than I ever had since I started blogging (there are piles of books throughout our house). It's not as if I don't have enough books to read, I probably have over 200 books in my to be read pile. So what is causing my breakdown with the turn of the year?
The only thing I can chalk it up to is the lure of the sale! Between Groupon's, Border's clearance sales, Amazon gift cards and BookPerk, I can't catch a break around here. I just keep shopping! It needs to stop though. I've got the bug. I go into a store and I want more. I used to be so good with books, knowing that I had so many I didn't need more, that it would take me way to long to get to them. But now? I can't pass up a deal. I have no resolve.
So what's your advice because if anyone out there has the same problem with being tempted by too many books it's other book bloggers and lovers of books! How do you resist buying ridiculous amounts of books? Especially when they are on sale? Any advice to help me get my resolve back up will be greatly appreciated! :)
