After taking stock of the books currently in my house that I have yet to read, I am forbidding myself to go in to any bookstore for 3 months. I should stay out of the library as well, but come on now let's not get crazy.  As you can see in the photo (which doesn't show the 50+ titles on my kindle), I've got some reading to catch up on.

My favorite bookstore is Half Price Books and I am there quite often.  In my own defense, I try to stick to the clearance section but it ends up being my downfall.  How can anyone expect me to pass up books for $1?  I just grab everything that looks good or is part of  a series that I need.  Other customers have actually come up to me in the store to ask questions.  One guy actually said "Sorry, with all those books I figured you must work here."  I don't actually buy everything I originally grab, I put some back.  But I do take a picture of it with my phone so that I can add it to my TBR list on Goodreads. 


  1. So why are you lounging on the futon in my studio when you should be reading?!?!?!

    Just kidding hon. I love you.


  2. I am just as bad as you. My fav store is The Book Inn. It's a half off or trade 2 for 1 with a huge specials area. I beeline to it first and then move on to genres I like. I usually have a large grocery bag full when I leave.

    1. Glad to hear I'm not the only one! I have a huge re-usable shopping bag from Half Price Books, which I conveniently forget to bring with me every time. Lately I've been leaving the store with at least 10 books
