So last week I discussed all the book challenges I’m taking part in this year to help tackle my out of control TBR shelf. After scanning all my books into a catalog app called Library Thing a few months ago, I was mortified to see how many books I own that haven’t been touched since I put them on my shelves.
As a result of this discovery, I pledged myself to a lot of challenges for 2020 to help me read my books. As part of those pledges I vowed to not buy more books until I had made a dent in the ones I already own. And it was going well!
That is, until it wasn’t. Yeah, I didn’t even last two weeks.
Okay, but in my defense… I actually have no defense. I was out with my husband to pick up a few things at the mall and decided to pop into a bookstore to “just look.” We both knew I was lying. He actually chose two of the Star Trek ones, but I wanted them just as much as he did. Ah well. At least one of the books is educational!
Also, even though I generally avoid books with the movie/TV show poster on the cover, I think in this instance I can live with the sacrifice. I wonder why…
How are your 2020 book resolutions going? Hopefully a bit better than mine are. Let me know in the comments!
