Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Ten Book Related Problems I Have 

*in no particular order

1. TOO MANY BOOKS--yes, my name is Jessica and I am a bookaholic.
2. OWNING MULTIPLE COPIES--yeah...I sometimes buy the same book twice. Mostly when it's a new cover change and I like it! Or in the case of Maria's books, I buy them! Though I have been known to buy UK copies of books I already own when I find them at HPB!
3. NO ROOM FOR BOOKS--I have NO ROOM for books anymore in my house, but yet I keep BUYING them! Yes, I know I can easily buy ebooks and solve that problem, but I won't, so I still have the problem of not having ANY ROOM for my new books!!

4. MONEY--yeah, books cost money. True there's the library, but I'm a book buyer. And right now I'm still trying to find a job and it's scary not knowing how I will get by financially. And yeah, I still buy books, gotta stop that for a bit...but it's an addiction, what can I say?
5. LACK OF LIBRARY ROOM IN MY HOUSE--okay, this is like my no room for books, but I need more shelf space!! For real!! Seriously, when I see Belle's new library, I drool over all that shelf space! I could probably fill quite a bit of them already if I had this room to myself!

6. HOW TO ORGANIZE MULTIPLE SERIES--I always struggle with organizing multiple series with authors. Do I put the ones I read first or published first? Truly a book nerd problem! For the most part I go with read first, but then I feel like published first should be first.
7. NEED FOR ALL BOOKISH ITEMS--every time I see something book related that depicts the love of books, reading and the like...I'm compelled to buy it! Seriously, I googled this and got this picture and now I NEED this pillow!!! I have never seen it before but I NEEDZ it!!

8. ANALYZING END TABLES--Yes, when I see an end table with shelves I analyze it and try to determine if I can fit it in my room somehow...it's another three short shelves after all!
9. BOOKISH ORNAMENTS--okay, that goes with number 7, but this is HOLIDAY related!! I see a bookish ornament and I obsess over it the whole holiday season! Luckily Santa comes through for me! LOL!

10. NEED FOR WALL-SPACE--so that I may fill it with book related posters! Be they book cover posters or transforming those amazing maps on the inside covers into posters so that I may bask in their glory!! But I NEED WALL-SPACE!!! 


  1. Ooh, that sounds a little evil.
    Hope you're enjoying your mini vacation.

  2. To smile at a funeral is to show that you are an evil character. SMH.

    Loved the list- especially the no vacancy part. I use to be anti-ebook, then I had kids. Kids that took up valuable bookshelf space with things like a crib and a dresser. Now I am all about the e-books.

  3. I love that tease, Jessica! Sounds dark! I need to start the Lunar Chronicles. And your list of book problems made my giggle. Although I do have a library in my house - finally (after 20 years) - I still have to think about space. I'm also a bookaholic and I need to make sure I'll always have room for all my pretties. :)

  4. I kind of wish I had more bookish items lol! But ya money is a big one! Money = all the books ;)

  5. I can completely relate to #1, #3, #4 and #5! It's a serious addiction! Every so often I just NEED to buy a new book, LOL! I'm alright for book space at the minute... we did get two extra bookcases last year, so that should help for at least this year! (Hopefully...) Great list!

    My TTT

  6. So many of these are true for me! I have too many books, not enough room for books, and not enough money for books. I also have a problem shelving series. Mostly because I own different editions of books in a series and I shelf my books by size. Great list!

  7. This reminds me I really need to organize my bookshelves. They are a mess and I also have books scattered in every room in my house. LOL
    I hope you are enjoying Fairest. I've heard mixed things about it.

  8. Loved the Study series...so excited a new book is coming out <3

  9. You really love Maria V. Snyder books, I still need to buy her poison trilogy,
