Reading - Not Buying

I've decided to not buy any books for a while, at least until I've reduced my unread pile. This may take sometime because I don't have a pile as such. I may be able to quantify such things a bit better after I've had a bit of a tidy this weekend.

In the meantime I shall be avoiding all bookshops, real or online, except unless accompanied by a responsible adult. It's not going to be easy.

I'm trying to keep to this policy, too, with some success.
Most of my unread books have gravitated to the bookshelf in the bedroom.

It's not easy avoiding bookshops, charity shops, Amazon, and ignoring my Bookmooch alerts. I was good at Eastercon and didn't buy anything, though.

But don't get me started on ebooks .. I've barely downloaded (and hardly touched) the Haiti haul.

The Dempsey Library Extension is open for business if you need it.

Hmm, I really should do this too, but I don't suppose I'm going to have the self-discipline to.
