Diet

August 17, 2007 at 9:55 am (books)

I have a problem. I can’t stop buying books.
I’ve been trying to be on a book diet but have failed like many a I-need-a-chocolate-so-bad-I-can’t-see-straight dieter. Except it’s books, not food.
My shelves are overflowing, my cupboards full. What am I going to do?
There are no support groups, no BA (Books Anon) to turn to. Aaargh! I just can’t stop.
But I figure I’m still ok…Rather have my uncontrollable excess settle on the brain than on the hips…Right?

    Hehe. I don’t think you have a problem Toby (unless you’re putting yourself in debt or bcoming a hermit or something?). You’re just improving your general knowledge and vocabulary, and thus your intelligence!

    Tobes, I have the same problem! I’ve imposed a rule on myself though…I’m only allowed to own what I can fit on my bookshelf. So every now and then I traipse out of here with a bag full of books either for the library as a donation or to friends who want it.

    (I can stack it three rows deep and more than half a meter high on top of the shelf…it looks ready to topple at the moment, so it’s probably time to pick favourites again soon)
    😉

    Oh Louisa, if only it were that easy! I can’t bear the thought of giving away any of my books so that plan isn’t going to work for me. *sigh*
