This post I saw on Instagram this morning got me all riled up. Whenever a list of celebrated books comes out, I frantically add the titles to my to read list. I’ve resisted so far, but it’s only a matter of time.
For the past several months, I’ve actually been trying to cut back on books. Not the reading of them, but the hoarding of them. I first tried to limit myself to only checking five out from the library at a time. Then I started going to two different libraries so I limited myself to five books from each of them. Then I was getting bored of managing my holds list so I deleted a bunch and activated the ones that were paused so that I could get them, read them or decide I don’t want to, and have a clean slate again. I’m down to four holds, but I have sixteen books checked out between New West and Vancouver.
I swear when I get this sorted out, I’m going to stick to my limits. Honest.
