Well, they say that the first step to recovery is to admit that you have a problem. Before my family stages an intervention (and the house becomes a fire hazard due to the overstocking of books), I guess I must make a public confession: I have a book buying addiction. More specifically, I can’t control myself when it comes to shopping for bargain books. I am not sure which provides the greatest ‘high’: purchasing the book itself, or marveling at how much money I saved in the purchase of the book. Here is the physical evidence:
- I can stop going into bookstores until I have read all the books on the TBR shelves.
- I can stop reading book blogs so that I am not tempted to feed my addiction by your reviews.
- I can ignore the problem and be content that this is my greatest vice in life.
For now, I vote for option 3. I’ll let you know when the family intervention is scheduled.
