#NoBuyJuly, Reading Slump, and More
1. Buy ten books every time I go into the bookstore.
2. Read one of them.
3. It wasn't that good, so I take it to trade back in at the bookstore.
4. I leave with ten more books.
Do we see how this monstrosity of a shelf has happened? I hardly ever keep books after I read them unless they are amazing. I take them back to the bookstore so they can aid my addiction with trade credit.
Because of this, I will be spending my whole month of July actually reading some of this pile instead of buying more! So if there are any words of encouragement that you guys could throw my way, I would be very appreciative! Let me know if you've tried a book buying ban or what works most effectively for you to control your urges. So #NoBuyJuly has begun!
Help me! I need guidance from somewhere. I'll take anything at this point!
