This post is a part of the Slice of Life challenge which is hosted on the Two Writing Teachers blog. The month of March the challenge is to write a blog post a day.
I just got home from Half Price Books where I bought this book stack:
Although all of these books were in the clearance section and I got a fabulous deal, I really had no business buying more books. I think I might have a problem. Is there a book-lovers anonymous to help me with this book addiction?
The reason I should not be buying more books is the fact that I already have waaayyyy too many books on my to-read shelves. Yes, that's right it is plural. These are my to-read shelves at home:
|This one only has books on 2 of the shelves|
|This one is stacked full of books that I have yet to read.|
This does not include the dozens of books that I want to read in my classroom or the ones I have stored on my Kindle (must stop looking at the daily deals). I seriously need to stop spending money on books for a while. This year, with the addition of Twitter into my life, I have become even more of a book nerd than I used to be. Now I know all the titles on the clearance shelf at Half Price Books, and I want to buy the whole warehouse at Scholastic sales. The worst of it is that somewhere along the way, I converted my husband into a book nerd too. (This isn't really a bad thing it just stops us from having the voice of reason when it comes to book buying. He is on a graphic novel kick right now and our collection is growing steadily)
So I am starting it now. No more book buying. Hello, my name is Andrea and I am a book addict. It has been an hour since I bought my last book. Where is the twelve step program and the support network for me?
