Booking Through Thursday




Mariel suggested this week’s question

Book Gluttony! Are your eyes bigger than your book belly? Do you have a habit of buying up books far quicker than you could possibly read them? Have you had to curb your book buying habits until you can catch up with yourself? Or are you a controlled buyer, only purchasing books when you have run out of things to read?

What a question. My eyes are definitely bigger than my stomach when it comes to books. I have a huge backlog of TBRs and I have not curbed my book-acquiring at all- if anything, I've gotten "worse". Books come to me, as to many of you, through several sources- buying new, buying used, trading, review requests or review solicitations and professional resources- so, at least in the short term, I don't expect to run out or even catch up any time soon. I love books, and I love reading, and I can't imagine losing interest in literature old and new. I just wouldn't be the same person!
