Buying Books: Do You Have it Under Control?
Absolutely not! Lol! See, my problem is that I LOVE BOOKS! And just as important, I love the authors who write these books. So my problem is that I buy books faster than I can read them. I buy my books as they release and try to preorder most of them, if not, buying them during release week to help with the author's sales! Yeah...it's weird.
I do this because I want to support my favorite authors! Although I try to read the books as fast as they release, we all know how impossible that ends up being. So though I can't read as fast as the books release, I buy them as they all come out.
Also part of my TBR problem can be laid at my beloved Borders' dearly departed feet. When their stores were starting their final closing sales, I was there every week or so, pretty much every time all the percent offs kept getting higher. Picking up books I thought I might read, ones I wanted to give a try...then proceeding to add the entire series to my basket instead of book 1. I mean, they had them all...and it was around the 30% off mark, plus my member 10% off it was a deal I couldn't pass up.
That same methodology can be applied to all my past RT trips too. Though I haven't been there since 2014 and I am in withdrawal. I wanted to go this year, but didn't think I would be able to afford it after a Chicago trip and a trip to Orlando in the same year. So that had to be put on hold until another year. Hopefully 2018 if the locale is a good place. Based on one rumor, it so isn't so I am really holding in the tears here! But anyway, yes RT can be blamed for my book buying problem. For one thing, they gave me books there! There were sooo many that I wanted to read and they were just handing them to me! And then I probably bought around 10 or maybe more, I really can't remember at the book signings, because hello, the author is right there signing them! LOL!
So yeah...my name is Jessica and I have a book buying problem! Though right now I have gift cards, so I'm okay financially for a little bit. Though I did just place a few Book Depository orders...but I mean, that doesn't really count yet right? Lol!
