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?
Ha…yes, I buy books much much much faster than I can read them. My reading speed is very slow; it’s like 50 pages an hour. And I don’t get more than an hour to read everyday. So it takes me a week to read a 300 pages book. But sometimes I do read a lot. Like last month I read 13 books (don’t ask me how).
I have divided my bookshelf into 2 parts, read and unread. That’s as far as I can manage it. And obviously there is absolutely no space in my “to-read” section whereas the “read” section can accommodate at least 40 books more.
I have more than enough books to last me for a couple of years or more. But I don’t hold back on buying books. I do hold back on ARC’s though because a tall ARC pile will give me unnecessary tension. Having said that I like to have a lot of options for my next read.
So book gluttony??? Oh, yes!!!
But I wouldn’t say that’s necessarily a bad thing 🙂
