Book obsessed

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.

Here’s a link to the books on The Booker Prize longlist for 2019.

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.
