Booking Through Thursday: May 14 Book Gluttony

May 14th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


This week’s Booking Through Thursday

Book Gluttony! Are your eyes bigger than your book belly? Do you have a habit of buying up books far quicker than you could possibly read them? Have you had to curb your book buying habits until you can catch up with yourself? Or are you a controlled buyer, only purchasing books when you have run out of things to read?

Yes, yes, yes.  I am such a book glutton.  I already have piles of books all over the house that I need to read but if I see a new book by one of my favorite authors I have to get it.  Then if I hear about a really good book and can’t get it at the library I usually end up buying it.  I will say I do usually limit myself to one book a week if there is a good Borders coupon.  If there is no coupon I’m usually pretty good about not buying books.  The main exception are Friends of the Library book sales.  I tend to go a little overboard at those but they are usually such good deals.  So I’m hoping one of these days I will actually be able to whittle down my physical TBR pile in my house.  One of my to do items is to actually count up and make a list of the books I own and haven’t read because a couple times I actually ended up buying a book at the library book sale that I already had at home.  I know, I know a sure sign I have too many books that I haven’t read at home.

Have I curbed my book buying habits?  Yep, definitely buying less books nowadays with money being tight.  Like I mention above usually I wait for at least a 30-40% off coupon from Borders or only if I get a gift card.
