The Book Buying Ban Has Ended!

This is just a quick post to say that I made it!

I made it 6 months and I only bought 1 book that was for a book club. Can you imagine? A year ago I wouldn’t have believed it possible.

It officially ended yesterday but I had a ballroom event and I was too tired to go to the bookstore to do anything. Today I will go to Barnes and Noble and will buy three books!

I have to say though, I feel like a huge weight has been slowly lifted off my shoulders. I don’t feel that compulsion to buy a book anymore. We will see once I’m at the bookstore but I honestly feel like I changed my view on grabbing all the books that interested me just a little. Was the cover pretty? Did it have a keyword that made me want to read it?

Now I think about it more than before. I set this limit of only buying three books today because I wanted to not go out and buy 50 books on one go. However, that limit has now left me free of that pressure. I have a clear intention of which books I’ll buy and that’s incredibly liberating right now.

And so, the books I will buy are:

  1. Adjustment Day by Chuck Palahniuk
  2. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
  3. Gemina by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff

I feel excited about these books and about going into the store today, with purpose, to buy them.

Thanks for reading!

PS. I’ll be trying to post a bit more here, I have a long post that I’ve been planning for a few weeks (book annotation woo!) that should come in the next week or so.

    1. Thank you! I definitely saved lots of money these past six months! The anxiety from my own TBR definitely moved me to go for the book buying ban and make some rules around my TBR (TBR Jar). Definitely recommend it! πŸ˜‰
