BTT – Gluttony

Booking Through ThursdayBook 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?

Yes, yes, yes, and sadly, no. Well, not really sadly. I don’t much care for the idea of actually running out of things to read. I would like to do a better job of curbing my book buying, and have begun to put some purchasing holds into place. I use my Amazon.com Wish List as a way to remember books that appeal to me without purchasing right away; I’ll make a note of a book and check for it at the library or Half-Price Books; and if I’m really struggling, I’ll close my eyes and picture the piles of unread books throughout the house. Sometimes these things work, sometimes not.

How about you? Do you have piles of unread books or are you more the “buy it, read it, get another one” type? If you struggle with “book gluttony” like me, do you have any curtailing methods that have worked for you?
