I’ve come to the conclusion that I should not – cannot – enter a bookstore any longer. Because if I do, I’m bound to come out with a few more books for my bookshelf and much less cash than I had when I entered.
I love books.
I’m addicted to books.
I cannot stop buying books.
The ironic thing is that at the moment I have no time to actually read books. I have a whole bookcase now filled with books I’ve not read yet. And still I keep buying them. I can’t help myself. I just have to.
I recently acquired a gorgeous copy of The Complete Sherlock Holmes. I had to. How could I not? It had gilded edges on the pages…
I do read. Whenever I can. It’s just not very often. In fact, I read Eloisa James’ Taming of the Duke (finally) this weekend. In one sitting. Unfortunately that sitting was from 1am to 6am (so I’m rather tired today!). I just wish I had more time to read. Eventually I will.. I hope. Maybe then I can catch up on all the unread books I have. (Last count it was more than 100… and I’ve bought more since.) If I can buy less books for a while maybe I could even catch up…
Does anyone else have anything that they buy too much of? (Not that I necessarily think I have too many books.. I do love them, afterall. I just wish I had time to read them as well.) Do you have a hard time resisting the allure of certain things? Clothes? Movies (I must admit to buying a fair few of those as well)? Anything?
Or am I the only ‘addict’ in the room?
