Booking Through Thursday


This week's discussion is courtesy of
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?

What is a controlled book buyer? I can't walk past a book shop or a charity shop without browsing and often buying. I live on a farm, so shopping in the nearest town may take place just a couple of times a week. This is well and good as I sometimes have no control when I check out the book shelves in the charity shops(we have no big book retailers in town) . There is the added incentive to buy , as the 'charity' books can be as low as £1.
My pile of books is far greater than is necessary, but this addiction needs feeding and I can think of far worse habits!
More disclosures of 'bad' habits here.

I agree there are worse habits. I do love books. Fortunately (or unfortunately) we do have a number of bookstores in town!

I agree there are a whole lot of worse habits a person can have other than reading. Happy BTT!

I think this is a common problem ;-)
