Bookish Pet Peeve #7: Buying Books I Don’t Read

I, too, suffer from this malady. I’ve been trying to get better but bookstore binges, library book sales, trips to the library, my Goodreads list, and recommendations from friends all serve to increase the number of books on my shelves and somehow I can’t add more time to my day. Most unfortunate.

101 Books

Today’s bookish pet peeve is about me. I am my own pet peeve.

But let me first clarify. Reading through the Time list has immensely helped me with this problem because the only books I buy right now are books on the Time list.

So I’m very purposeful, rarely experiencing one of those bookstore binges in which I buy 10 books, only to read 2 of them before the next bookstore binge.

You know how it goes, right?
