Half price on everything today at the library book sale! What‘s a bibliophile to do?? Fill all the bags.
One of my bookcases with too many (no such thing) TBR books! I even bet against myself to see if I can go through it all by the end of this year, providing I don‘t get anymore ARCs and buy any more books! What do you think?
Who else has this problem in their home? 😃
Just realised that I should squeeze in the 1st act of Henry IV Part 1 before tomorrow. From being a reader who only read one book at a time, to progressing to two books at a time as ebooks became a thing (one physical book, one digital), I now find myself reading four different books for buddy reads 🤓
Just now I was reading my daily Genji chapter, then looked at my copies of Shirley & Henry IV looking back at me, & I became this meme 🤣
This is my #bookoutlethaul for Boxing Day. I really have no room for any more books, so I think 2019 must be the year of ebooks (because my book buying ban was a spectacular failure!).
I‘m trying to finish the last of the books I‘ll reasonable read this year. I‘m almost at the end of Blood Meridian and I‘m working on Predator‘s Gold. I‘ve been listening to the audiobook version of The Fisherman. If I can finish those, I‘ll have 83 books for the year which isn‘t too shabby. This year is easily the best reading year I‘ve ever had. Litsy has worked wonders for keeping me accountable so thanks everyone! ❤️
My daughter decided that she wants to give me a book for Christmas, so she informed my husband that she‘ll need his help. I‘m supposed to provide a list of choices and they will surprise me with one of them.
And then hubby had to go and ruin it by asking where I‘m going to put another book.
So, I may have a problem. Maybe. I‘ve my limit for library books. I‘ve actually cleared a shelf for library book storage. So, #libraryhaul addiction? Impulse control issues? At this point it‘s unlikely I‘ll hit my #mounttbr goal cause of all the library books I‘ve read the last few months... there‘s always next year, right?!? #booknerdproblems 🤓📚💜
My mother looked around my bedroom the other day and asked if I had enough books.
As a Litten, the only appropriate answer is, “Never!”
She commented that she didn‘t need the library when she could just borrow from me. Somehow, I don‘t see her reading most of these books any time soon 😉
You have books on the shelves. You have books on the night stand. You have books in the closet, the guest room, and on the floor. Oh, and don‘t forget about the books waiting for you in the mailbox. Some would say, “You have too many books.”But as any book lover knows, there‘s really no such thing as “too many” books.
I got the “don‘t buy any more books” lecture from my hubby today! 😱
Happy Friday, gang! I started the morning book-shaming myself. 😉
I will say that since joining Litsy in 2016, I‘ve acquired too many books, but I‘ve also read a ton more!
I have a few questions for those of you who use NetGalley:
1. What's your feedback ratio? Are you over the 80% mark?
2. Is it terrible that I'm only at 52%? I'm reading and reviewing as quickly as possible, but that % is dragging.
3. Do you read yours in the order you received them or in the order they'll be published?
One of four bookshelves we spent the afternoon rearranging. Now I want to read them all, and don‘t know which one to read next! #bookishproblems
Does anybody ever feel a bit overwhelmed at the multiple ways we can obtain books now ? New books, used books, book mail services, ereaders, reading on your phone , listening to audio. In some ways we are so lucky , but I don‘t appreciate books as much as I once did. As a kid, our library was so small, and got lots of use, so you had a limit of 4 books for 4 weeks. I felt lucky to have those 4. Now I feel like I‘m on overload. Am I the only one ?
#blameItOnLitsy. Seem on Facebook this morning. 👀
I‘m trying to get through these four books all at once, and then three ebooks on my kindle, but my brain is not going to do what I want. So I‘ll just rotate with other ones, and hopefully, I‘ll get through them much easier. Elinor Gill is amazing! I‘m reading her book-The Moon Spun Around. She writes sort of magical, spiritual, mysterious, mystical books. I‘ve read three others of hers, and I‘ve got one other to read.
A friend sent this to me on Facebook this morning! 😂 I‘m also a fan of referring to the floor as the biggest shelf in the house, thus justifying my many scattered stacks. Happy Friday, everyone!
Gahhh! I am running out of room again for books! Where do I put them all!? Because I am certainly not stopping... 🤔.
This is a great article that completely justifies why I recently purchased a book about the history of hot air ballooning 😬. https://www.inc.com/jessica-stillman/why-you-should-stop-feeling-bad-about-all-t...
I officially declare that it is indeed possible to have too many books 😬. I‘ve finally finished putting all of my new bookcases together, and I still don‘t have enough room for all of my books! So, I‘m now on a self-imposed book-buying ban 😫
......because who couldn't use this 🤓😉📚📚📚📚
Found uses for those Amazon and book swap boxes I haven't thrown away yet!!!! Packed up my books today. Had to put them in smaller boxes for weight (men aren't as strong as they think they are 🙊). My daughter's books still need done. So it's bye bye books for the next 6 days!!!! Good thing I have my Kobo 😉
Decided to alphabetize the shelves and now there's not enough room on the last (ARC) shelf for everything! Trying to cull and even that is not helping 😂We wanted to wait until we move to get another shelf but I'll have to come up with something...
Culled out some of the books from my shelves to make room for more...... these are books I've read that I don't think I would ever read again or share with anyone. Sigh.....
