Okay… there may be worse addictions but I am well and truly addicted to buying books.
I have more than enough books that I haven’t read to keep me going till the end of the year, probably longer, but I still can’t resist the lure of one more. I’m scared if I don’t buy IT now, it’ll vanish and I’ll never get the chance again.
I’m not sure how many unread books I have on my e-reader, but I have at least 50 on various shelves throughout the house.
I decided it was time to do something drastic, so I banned myself from buying any books until the Romance Writers of Australia conference in August. This was about two weeks ago. Yesterday I ordered a book from Book Depository.
Some of the books on my shelves waiting to be read:
*The Woman He Loved Before – Dorothy Koomson
*Yours To Keep – Shannon Stacy
*Negligee Behaviour – Shelli Stevens
*The Making of Us – Lisa Jewell
*What Alice Forgot – Liane Moriarty
*Can’t Stand The Heat – Louisa Edwards
*Ondine – Ebonny McKenna
*House Rules – Jodi Picoult
*Getting Away With It – Julie Cohen
*The Inherited Bride – Maisey Yates
And this is only a tiny slice of my assortment. So you can see that I really didn’t need ONE MORE BOOK!!
I don’t know if it’s a blessing or a curse but I’ve discovered Book Depository’s Wishlist – so now every time I think of a book I’d like, I go there and add it. Then, every time I feel like getting a package delivered, I go and order another one.
Does anyone know if there’s a twelve step program for this!?
