Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, bloggers make a list on a related theme. I decided to take part for the first time this week, and found the theme was ‘most anticipated reads for the rest of 2017’. Sticking to it would have been like staring at a chocolate eclair while on a diet, because I’ve just announced a four week book-buying ban. Why? It’s basically a case of reader-I-did-it-again.
‘Shall I buy one book or nine?’ says I. Guess which answer won out. Much as I love books, the small pile of gold I keep guarded by dragon cannot take it.
This week, I have made a list of ten books on my shelves I ABSOLUTELY MUST read before I buy another book. Let’s see how far into June it lasts.
Have you ever imposed a book ban? Did you stick to it? (More to the point, how?) Let me know in the comments below.
Yep … I’m guilty of buying in bulk.
