I told myself....”you have a ton of unread books at home”, “you have a ton of stuff to do today and don‘t have time” .... my car made the turn and took me to the Friends Book Warehouse (totally out of my control). At least I restrained myself and only bought these 3 books for only $7. #winning #NoWillPower #INeedAMeeting #BookloversAnonymous #IMayHaveAProblem #HelloMyNameIsChelleo #ButImALibrarian #ThisIsTotallyProfessional

BarbaraJean Great picks! And you‘re not alone—I had the same experience last Saturday except it was my feet instead of the car. I suddenly found myself in the Friends of the Library shop across the street from where my car was parked! Good thing my feet took me to the bookshop and not into traffic. 😂 11mo
IamIamIam Clearly your inner Mr. Hyde took over and you woke up in a strange parking lot with books in your car. I'll vouch that you had no control of your body while this was going on. 🤘 11mo
Fridameetslucy After (or before - whichever you fancy) watch the film Smoke Signals. His latest is a memoir and I think one of the only books that a son looks deeply at the maternal wounds of his childhood 11mo

This is just to say that I‘m about halfway through my first #LMPBC book.

I‘m planning to finish it up this weekend & send it, via “snail mail” (😅🙄🐌), along its merry way.

I haven‘t yet acquired the chocolate accompaniment, though. Fear not. It will be acquired. It will be tasty. It‘s possible it may be bought in duplicate. #nowillpower 🍫🤤


BarbaraBB Great picture! 11mo
TheLibrarian I have to read mine this weekend and mail it out Monday. Do I mail to you first? And do you know if we always mail to the same person? 11mo
monalyisha @TheLibrarian Yes! The way I‘m reading it, you mail to me first & we always mail to the same person. I‘ll be mailing mine to @MirrorMask. 11mo

TheLibrarian @monalyisha Thanks! That‘s what I thought but wanted to double check. 11mo
MirrorMask I plan on sending mine out some time next week. I gotta get some chocolate 11mo
monalyisha @MirrorMask @TheLibrarian @Elma Aaaand chocolate is acquired. Now I just have to finish the book. 😉 11mo
Kimberlone Your rings are pretty! 11mo
monalyisha @MirrorMask I sent the book out to you today! It should arrive 4/5. Normally, I would have sent a card but I forgot it at home & figured it was more important to get it in the mail. I hope you enjoy my notes, though! And the chocolate. 🍫 #LMPBC #LMPBCnC @Elma @TheLibrarian @suvata (edited) 11mo
monalyisha Thanks @Kimberlone ✨! 11mo

I've been so good. Really I have. I haven't bought any books, for 52 day (yes, addicts on the road to recovery count days) then I open a YA email from Book Riot this morning and in a hazy blur these 3 beauties end up on my Kindle. #nowillpower #atleastitsnotdrugs

B&N sent me a 20% off a YA title coupon. I couldn‘t not use it, right?

The dangers of working from home. After a constructive morning I just nipped our to buy a newspaper but made the mistake of sauntering past the marvellous Muswell Hill Bookshop, and seem to have been led astray. #nowillpower #muswellhillbookshop #muswellhill #n10 #muswellhillbilly #book #books #bookstagram #patbarker #mandascott #thesilenceofthegirls #atreacheryofspies #donttellcatherine

BnN had a good deal on these two which just happened to be on my TBR. Couldn‘t resist! #nowillpower

Guess how this equation turns out: Me + Free Time + Gift Card + Nearby Bookstore = ? I had an hour to kill before picking up hubby from work & the $50 #Indigo gift card I won last Nov. just begging to be used... I got 2 books (both #tbr), a mug that fits me to a “tea” & a zip up journal sleeve with removable notebook. There's room to squeeze them onto my shelves but 😱 Why is not buying books so damn HARD?! #NoWillpower #BanShman 🤷‍♀️#WorthIt

Sharpeipup The mug....😂 2y

Out of my mind! I have a few Netgalley's ARCs, current TBR pile on my shelves and still I can't stop myself from hauling these books from library! I do not exercise any self-control when I'm surrounded by books 😐
#noselfcontrol #nowillpower #notenoughbooks

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I enjoyed The Yard and went on to read the rest of the series. It isn't perfect, but overall it is entertaining with likeable characters. 2y
thereadingowlvina @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Nice! I hope I will enjoy this series too. Excited to start! 😊 2y
