I’ve made a pact with myself. The pact is around the purchasing (or not purchasing actually) books until I read 30 (okay 31!) books from my personal library.
As someone who is trying to save, I find that I am spending too much on books, especially when I have a lot at home that I have to finish reading or even start.
I think I have book ADHD.
Today, I went to BookCourt, my new favorite bookstore in NYC (sorry Strand) bought a book and then went to the Barnes & Noble store in Park Slope and bought two additional books. A total of three books may not be a cause for concern, however, I can sense the slippery slope. In the picture above are the books that I will complete before I buy another book.
Here’s to self control.
