I’ve been inspired by Helen (@Gingersquirrel) to do something ridiculous. It puts fear into my heart.
Something that’s going to be harder than a 45 hour labour that produced a 9lb baby.
Something that will take all my energy and resolve- and we all know how weak my willpower is.
From tomorrow, I am putting myself on a three month book buying ban. From August 1st to November 1st (which will be two days after D’s first birthday, so easy to remember!), I will not be allowed to exchange any money for a book. This includes knitting/crafty books. Those who know me know how hard this will be, Helen’s version is here.
I’ve slightly changed the rules to suit me- I probably won’t do a re-read for example. However, I will be allowed to accept books lent/given to me by friends, any that are sent to me for review (hello, publishers!) and books from the library. I’m hoping that this will spur me into reading some of the many, many books on my shelves.
Here is a tiny fraction of the books I currently own, either in tangible or Kindle form:
Let me know if you’ve read any of these, or any books you recommend I borrow from the library. I will, of course, let you know my progress in the monthly books round up. I only hope the next three months isn’t very painful….
