So many books, so little time.

I need to put myself on a book buying ban. I have bought over 10 books in the past three weeks and I haven't started any of them. I've also won about 10-15 books through giveaways and Goodreads as well. I have no control over myself when it comes to brand new books sitting on pretty bookstore shelves. I feel so satisfyed when I walk to the counter with an arm full of books, but once I get home, I realize I have no where to put them! My bookshelf is doubled up on each shelf and 90% of the books of my shelves haven't been read yet.

I've been reading Wonder Show by Hannah Barnaby, only about 3 quarters of the way through it, and it was the first book I won from Goodreads... about 2 months ago. Talk about slacking... I blame my lack of reading on having to work everyday.

Although, I am very excited to say I am participating in World Book Night for April 23rd! It's the first time the U.S. has participated and my local bookstore, Island Bound on Block Island, RI is supplying the books. I'm really looking forward to our meeting tomorrow afternoon about how we plan on passing out the books to non-readers. "Hey stranger, do you read? Here's a FREE BOOK. TAKE IT. ENJOY IT. PASS IT ON." I don't know how well that will go over with some of the people in my town, haha. But we shall see!

Happy reading.


  1. I can totally feel you when you say that you have not started on any of your books. Sometimes, I simply have no time.

    1. Sometimes, it just depends on my mood. I can read a book a night, and then some days will go by where reading is the farthest thing from my mind!

      Thanks for checking out my blog!

  2. I'm on a ban, too... theoretically!! lol I keep getting an awful lot of books for "not getting any more 'til I read all these!!" How was World Book Night?

    1. World Book Night was a lot of fun! There was an informal wine and cheese get together last Saturday, and I've never talked to so many book lovers before! (Besides on blogs.. :)

      I'm still really impressed with all the publishers that paid to have thousands of books published to be passed around just for the sake of reading! I'm really glad I was apart of it this year, and I hope to continue.

      Thanks for checking out my blog. I always love visiting yours! :)
