Follow me Friday (#2)

 


This is a hop created and started by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. For rules, to follow other bloggers, and just to have fun, go check them out and follow along!

Question of the Week: Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

Answer of the week: About 50+ books.

I have a serious book buying addiction that is in dire need of getting looked at. Do they have book buying rehab? If anyone ever finds or hears of one let me know. I'll be first to sign up!

Book buying is my addiction. It makes me happy, excited, free-feeling, powerful, different, and most of all it is fun! Jeesh, I make it sound like some sort of drug. I guess, in retro respect, you can compare book buying to a drug. My point is, I have a lot of books and that has to do to how entertaining and pleasurable it is to buy them.

Who doesn't love buying books? It's so much fun and exciting. I love holding that book I've been longing to read. It gives me book pleasure. Mmmm....

How about you guys? Am I the only one about to admit my problem?

With Christmas and my Birthday just having past, I have SO many books I've received as gifts. I guess people really don't mind contributing to my addiction. Ah well, more books for me in the end.

So many books, so little time,

Angela

  4. Same here! Buying books is an addiction, we should probably go get it listed as a disease.

  5. Hopping through. Book buying isn't my addiction b/c I hate spending money. But book collecting via the library is an addiction. I can't resist the library.

  10. Good morning - new follower (thanks for stopping by).

    I'm all for the long TBR list . . . gives us something to do if we win the lottery, or if civilization breaks down into some post-apocalyptic dystopia. :)

  11. I didn't have time to count, but I probably have about 50 books TBR, too! There are just so many I want to read (and then a bunch I have to read!)

  18. Oh! I love buying books too! I also love walking out of the library with a huge stack of books...for free! I don't even get to half of them, but it gives me that 'book buying high' anyway :-)

    Thanks for following my blog! Following you back!

  24. I'll admit it...I have a book buying addiction! lol Which is why my 'unread' pile is much larger than my 'read' pile! But hey, at least I have plenty of options on what to read next!
