'BTT - Gluttony'

Mariel suggested this week’s question (thanks Mariel!):
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?


Wow! This week's question seems to be 'tempting' enough!!! Only this early morning, I sat on the family hall with my cuppa coffee, staring at my neatly arranged books on the table. One of them is still covered with a plastic cover, while I've read few pages on the other two.. plus my current reading on my hand (it's halfly read, though!). And more inside my room.. Thoughts passed my mind... am I gonna make it?? Could time tell???

I have used to ask myself that kind of questions everytime I bring home new books. I just couldn't resist my desire. I love them and I never wanted to curb this greediness (grin). Even though I know I have a so-called 'to-be-read' pile a mile high, but it's weird getting out of the bookstore without buying something.. and the whole day would be empty, like I've skipped one of my routine! My nephew suggests me this, 'Don't enter the bookstore!'. Ok, sometimes I would just go away but then in few minutes time I would be inside the bookstore and you will find me with at least two books in my shopping bag walking out later on. :)

I'm a book-glutton... and this is a confession of a bookaholic..

Have a wonderful day!

Don't enter the bookstore? Yeah, right! LOL. I will admit that going to my library more has really helped the buying part of my book addiction. But, my stack is still huge.

:) Us gluttons have to stick together, stand up to those minimalists.

I'm a book glutton, too. It's impossible to leave a bookstore without buying something.

LOL. Me and my sister are real book gluttonies! But I haven't that much time anymore to go in a bookstore. I think it will also pass on to my 8 year old daughter. Have a great day, JonJon :)
