The Great Book Buying/Library Ban!

It is time!  Time for the Great Book Buying/Library Ban.  I’ve been going through all my books and deciding which ones get to stay and which one’s I’m going to be donating and I have come to the conclusion that I NEED to stop buying books or borrowing books from the library until I get my numbers down to a manageable number.  I went so far as to create a LibraryThing account just for my TBR Mountain (that’s my screen name on there too theTBRMountain) and just going through my Nook (that’s all I have up there so far is my e-books) I have 55 books so far and I’m only about 1/2 way through my Nook library.  I haven’t even started going through my bound books yet, so yeah that number is going to skyrocket.

 So I am setting a couple of goals for myself.  My goals are….

1.  I will not buy (I have pre-ordered a few books so they will not count against me) another book until I have read 20 E-Books and 20 bound books from my TBR Mountain.
2.  I will not check out any library books until June 1, 2012.

Have you ever been on a book buying/library ban before?  How successful were you?

  1. I was on a book ban in December and it ends quite well. It was a blessing in disguise that I didn't find anything I desperately need to read from the library in that month lol. 🙂

  2. Wow, you have more will power than me. Although I have made the resolution to not buy any hardbacks unless they are at least 50% off or more (like amazon's bargain books). Of course I do have a few pre-order exceptions of books that I ordered before I made this new rule and just had to have. Even so, I still canceled a bunch of orders. What can I say? I have an addiction.

Talk to me Goose!....
