Last year I wrote a blog about how obsessed I was with buying books (read here). In it, I said I would give up buying books for Lent. It seems that time is upon us. This Wednesday started my no book buying for 40 days and nights. Will I make it?
I hope so. I'm doing this challenge for two reasons: 1) To help supplement the spending I do on books and 2) To help supplement the lack of space I am reaching in my condo. I doubt that this experiment will cut down my book purchases when it's over, but I can at least say I tried. Already it's been difficult. I woke up Wednesday to an email from Barnes and Nobel for Buy One Get One 50% Off The 39 Clues book series. As it so happens, I need to finish my series. I only have the first 3 books and there are 10. I WAS TEMPTED.
I refrained from it, but can I keep it going. Only time will tell.
Blogs are whatever we make them. Defining ‘Blog’ is a fool’s errand.
