This week’s Booking Through Thursday question was suggested by Mariel: Book Gluttony! Are your eyes bigger than your book belly? Do you have a habit of buying up books far quicker than you could possibly read them? Have you had to curb your book buying habits until you can catch up with yourself? Or are you a controlled buyer, only purchasing books when you have run out of things to read?
Of course I have a stack of books waiting to be read. Still, most of these books I didn’t buy. I may have swapped them, or borrowed them, or received them as review copies. If I actually bought them, most likely they pertain to my primary long-term reading challenge. I don’t know that I actually wait until I’ve run out of things to read before buying more. However, I don’t spend much money at all on books, so it’s hard for me to call my book-buying actions gluttony.
What about you? Could your book-buying habits be called a deadly sin?
