from Booking Through Thursday:
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?
Of course I\’m a book glutton! I simply can\’t resist. The last time I remember having actually read everything on my shelves was back in high school. Usually I have more books on hand than I can catch up to and still acquire more, somehow. Currently (if my Library Thing tags are up to date) I have about 125 books sitting in the bedroom that haven\’t been read yet. The only way I make any inroads on the piles is due to the fact that if a book just isn\’t interesting me, I have no qualms about clearing it off my shelf. So out of those 125, I probably won\’t like -and won\’t finish- maybe a third of them. And just yesterday I was thinking it\’s about time to go to that thrift store nearby where I can get thirty books for four dollars…. wouldn\’t you?
