I Have a Problem.

I have Book ADD again.

I think I’m in the middle of six and about to start another one. I blame the fact that I work in a bookstore and cannot control myself. OK, seriously. No more purchasing books until I am done with all the reads I have in line. Oh, whoa. This could take a while or I could just hunker down and do it.

The list, with books I have started first, and books I have yet to start at the end:

  • Lolita
  • The Book Thief
  • Cutting for Stone
  • American Wife
  • Something Blue  (I may abandon this ship.)
  • The Lacuna (Another pursuit I may abandon shortly)
  • Admission (My current read, liking it thus far. It may be the one to cure me.)
  • My Korean Deli (I must read this is two weeks, a lend from work.)
  • Lunch in Paris (Lent to my FMIL while in the middle of it, because she was going to Paris.)
  • The Postmistress
  • Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
  • A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
  • Reading Lolita in Tehran

OK, seriously? The list looks way worse now that I have actually written it out. I will not buy another book for one month. In that one month, I need to finish these books. What is wrong with me? I think I have a problem. I think I am addicted to buying books.

  1. I have the exact same problem (!), my to-read list keeps growing… and last week I attended the yearly book fair we have in my country and the list only grew.. (at least it was a good visit, and I got all my book finds signed <3)

    The Book Thief is a wonderful book, it got me quite emotional. I heard a lot about Lolita, but haven't got around to reading it – how does it look so far?

    I discovered your blog through freshly pressed – it is really wonderful, I myself also try to write about the books I read and everything else going on in my life over at my blog… I mainly write in Swedish though, but it works fairly well to googletranslate =) . Books is always fascinating, and it is always exciting to be recommended something new.
