The Great Book Buying Ban part 2

A few weeks ago I posted that I would not be buying or checking out anymore books until I had read a certain number of books that I already have.  Yeah, well I FAILED on that one totally.  I'm Failing on my Fail Boat.  After going over my IMM's for the past couple of weeks I am pretty disheartened by the number of books I've added to my TBR Mountain.  I don't know the exact number off the top of my head but it's entirely way to many.  So now that I have officially ticked myself off I'm putting myself on a book buying ban for REAL.

So my goal is to not buy anymore books until the end of March.  This does NOT include the titles that I have pre-ordered.  I never count those against me.  I'm pretty sure my bank account will thank me for this too.

Wish me luck.  I'm going to need all the luck I can get!


  1. Best of luck to you! I really need to go on a book acquisition ban too. I've been pretty good at not buying books, but I keep getting them from the library or borrowing from friends, which is nearly as bad!

  2. You can do it! And you'll feel so good when you do. But don't be so hard on yourself. Books are really one of those positive addictions...right?

  3. Book buying bans are always SOOOO difficult to keep! I had to put myself on a three-month one last year, and I nearly died! Lol.
