Addicted

I am addicted.  Yes, sadly I am addicted to buying books.  I thought getting my Kindle my addiction would slow down, I was wrong.  When the two local Border Bookstores closed down I just knew that would be the end of the addiction, I was so very, very wrong.  I seem to be buying more actual books and e-books on Amazon.  I don't know if I will ever be able to read all that I am buying.  
I love, love, love books.  I love real books but I love my Kindle too.  It's a scary addiction.  I'm reading as fast as I can but they publish so many books every, single day that I'm afraid I will miss out on something good.

I'm going to try,TRY very hard to stop, or at least stop unless I need to get one for my book club.  I can't borrow or check out at the library because I don't like to give them back.  I know it's a sickness.  I'm addicted to paper and words that are printed on it.  

One good thing is I actually took a huge pile to a used book store and sold them and I still have a pile in the garage that I'm offering to my book club members and the ones left will go to Goodwill.  That's good isn't it.  Maybe the addiction isn't too bad...

I must have change in my pocket every time I go to the library. First thing I look at: the Friends of the Library book sale. I can't pass up a good (or at least interesting looking) book for 50 cents!

We had to sell, give away a room full of books before we moved to Hawaii. We're trying very hard not to collect again. :-) I do love my Kindle too.

I'm a book collector too! For new books that I Just want to read, I'm all about my Kindle. But I love collecting old books! While it would probably make more sense to get a babysitter to watch my children so I could go to the spa to relax... I often use my babysitter privileges to go to used bookstores to browse! - Dorothy
