Conquering an Addiction: September Book Ban (Day 1)

Here it is day one of the ban and already I’m bombarded with temptation. Today I received an email from Borders announcing their new Rewards Membership along with $1.99 bargain bin. You.Have.Got.To.Be. Kidding.Me!!!! They couldn’t release this last week, when I was still crazily snapping up books like the world was coming to an end?? Bah-humbug. I would drop them if it wasn’t for their lovely cheap books, wonderful atmosphere and awesome drinks. The jerks. So here I am grumpy as can be because there’s a sale and I’m not at it. Oh and I have to modify one of my guidelines. Unfortunately, I forgot that I had requested The Passage from the library a long time ago, so I do have a library book. *shrug* It was either read it now or wait another few months until my name gets called again.

To console myself I’ve started organizing and counting my own books. It seems as if my books have started having bookies of their own. I’m not through so I don’t have the final number yet. That shall be my next posting in this long, long journey. On the plus side though, I’ve prepared a few book packages for some good friends of mine and I’m participating in Becky’s Read-a-thon Challenge this coming week, which should help reduce my numbers…I hope. And I have my wonderful Smut-tember Fest to look forward too. Considering how much smut I own I think that will definitely reduce my numbers. So there you have it. I guess it’s not totally a bad day. :D


  1. You can do it! I need to get my pom poms out.

    Book Depository keeps telling me things on my wishlist have been reduced in price.

  2. If it makes you feel any better, I can't read today because I have to try to finish my bookmark for WT... I have a LOT to do on it still... and it's supposed to go out tomorrow.
