I’ve put myself on a book ban. I am not allowed to purchase any more until I read what I have in my personal library. This is incredibly hard. To get around this if I’m not feeling like reading soemthing I own, I’ve started borrowing books from the library. My boyfriend always seems to find something. I however go in and most times find nothing and then gravitate towards the travel section which is pretty extensive.
I think it’s mostly because our library is just a small branch so most of the books I want are not there. So then I must reserve. The thing that sucks is we have to pay to reserve books. It’s annoying, that’s the purpose of using the library, it’s meant to be free. Yes, it’s still cheaper than buying but then I have to wait. I have just received 1/3 books that I recently reserved.
Then once I get the book I have to deal with mysterious stains or bits of food. This recent one isn’t bad as the book itself is a new release but one I just finished reading 2 weeks ago was kinda gross. I recognize that the way I read books – so that it looks like it’s never been touched – is not how others will. But is it too much to ask that you at least not eat over it? Or drink or anything else gross? I mean we’re sharing.
I’m determined to stick to this ban…but it’s looking bleak.
