Hey Beautiful Booklovers! So sorry I have been absent lately, it turns out third babies like to play games of false labour with you…how fun! But I’m back and baby is still cooking for now, but I will warn you that it could be any day now (so if I disappear for a bit you’ll know why)! Rest assured my March Wrap up and April tbr will be coming at you this week!
Anyway, enough of that, today’s post is all about my new rule – No more buying books!
Okay, so let me start by saying that this is long overdue for me! I have an impulse problem when it comes to purchasing books, and I’m finally putting my foot down! I buy more a month than I can physically get through, and that’s just stupid. I have decided that I need to behave myself and tackle the books I have on my shelves – which is too damn many!
So, for the foreseeable I will not be buying any new books, and clearly you don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to note I said NEW. Which means I am allowing myself the treat every now and then to purchase a pre-loved book if I manage to work through a load of my tbr! This is just an option – to be honest, I plan not to buy any, but knowing me I have to factor in the urge to buy lol!
I just think it’s time for me to get through my huge tbr and this at least ensures I’m checking off more than I’m bringing home. That being said, I will point out I have kindle unlimited, and may venture down that avenue occasionally too, but since I’m off kindle reading right now (yes, still) I don’t see that being a big issue.
Anyone want to join me on my good behaviour? We could struggle together lol?
How many books a month do you read? Are you terrible for book buying like me? Or are you a good booklover, and rarely buy new? Let me know in the comments below!
