Remember how, back in March, I said No More Books?
And then bought more, and then I really said No More Books.
Well, it was my birthday at the end of April.
I received books. And money. Which I spent on books...
The picture on the left was taken on 27th April. The picture on the right was taken today, after delivery of a parcel of books (bye bye birthday money!)
I did read a book from the pile. And I gained a book from a friend which never got added to the pile, because I read it immediately.
But then more books happened.
It is a daily struggle as they take over more space, and I procrastinate on reading them.
These are mostly second-hand books, because a) they're cheaper b) I can't justify spending so much on new books c) most are from charity shops and therefore money to a good cause.
It's also so much easier to spend 'just 20p' or 'just £2' on a second-hand book.
Instead of £9.99+ for one book.
Which is probably why used books are taking over my cupboard.
I should probably read more, shouldn't I?
