buying books is both good and bad.

Monday, February 18, 2013

The whole season of fall, I don't think I really bought any books. That is a pretty big deal, especially for me. I just wasn't into it at all, and couldn't find anything that captured my interest. This past January though, and this February, I have been slowly getting back to one of my favorite things.


Now this can be a good thing, and a bad thing at the same time.
Good for me since I am back to reading and loving it, but bad... for my wallet!

I mean, do I really need another book? I don't have space on my bookshelves anymore, and I really need to think about getting bins for my other books to keep somewhere else or something. But I couldn't help myself. To be honest, I am pretty excited about this growing enthusiasm. It's about time it came back!

Here's the books I got so far in 2013. It's not much, but it's a good place to start after a horrible reading slump. 

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
Villette by Charlotte Bronte
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
World War Z by Max Brooks

What books have you bought so far this year? 
And is book buying exciting as exciting for you as actually reading it? For me it is! I'd like to hear from you. 


  1. I've been pretty good about not buying books so far this year. I feel a shopping spree coming on though lol

    I went on a huge e-book bender last November/December. I won't even let myself look at books!

    P.S. I loved World War Z

  2. I love buying books and have ever since I was a kid and got book orders from school; I'd rather buy books than shoes! But I've been trying to cut back on my purchases this year; I'm running out of room on my shelves. But World War Z is one I might have to buy.

  3. I have the same problem! I keep buying books but have nowhere to put them!
