Book Buying Ban!

So, as you could probably tell from the title, I am going to partake in a book buying ban. Why? Because by the time that all of my pre-orders come (hopefully this week) there will be nearly 40 books in TBR mountain, and that is enough books to last me, like, a third of a year. I NEED TO STOP. ( 40 is a lot of books for me.)
(I know it doesn't look like a lot, but if I piled them all on top of each other, I'd be scared that they would fall on my face and eat me. Yes, TBR piles do have souls.)

But, anyway, no more books buying for me! Also, I'm trying to use the library more often because I'm doing work experience there, and I want to see who I'm gonna be working with. So, if you see me buying any books (not in real life, obviously, but on IMM or something) you have permission to shout at me, unless it's a hardcover, in which case it's a pre-order and doesn't count. :D I'm going to try and keep this up until March, at least (WITHER!!!)

(And on a different note, I'm trying to read more contemporary YA, any recommendations?) 


  1. Good call! I wish I had your willpower haha ;)

  2. I may need to do the same - my TBR bookcase (yes book case) is 3 and bit shelves full and I still went out at the weekend and bought 8 more - I am addicted

  3. Good luck Cicely! I've put myself on a book buying ban until March, lol. Over the past month I practically bankrupted myself with book buying. Here's hoping we both stick to our guns!
    (by the way, your order is placed, so hopefully you'll get book #41 very soon!)

  4. I totally understand my TBR is HUGE and I don't have any job so I can't always buy books I need to stop ^^.
    But good luck !

    Hum... contemporary novel... have you read Anna and the french kiss by Stephanie Perkins? I know everybody talks about this book but it's really good one of my favorite 2010 read ! You need to read it :). Or perfect chemistry. I've just finished it and it's awesome too !

  5. OMG. That's crazy. You're crazy. How can you buy so many books????? Hahaha, good choice. You really need a buying ban.

  6. Good luck! I'm on a book buying ban too. I have over 100 books sitting on my shelves :(

  7. Buying ban sounds so smart! I got a lot of books over christmas that are sitting on my TBR shelf looking at me! (it's like they taunt you). I might have to jump on thie book buying ban wagon!

  8. You have a ton of good bookes in that pile! Good luck! :) I live too close to the book store to stop buying. Haha.
