Book Ban

Hey y’all. My friend and I are currently on a book buying ban for the month of May.

There are a few reasons that we decided to do this:

  • We’ve been hanging out more and 99% of the time we end up at multiple bookstores
  • We keep buying books even though our TBRs are never ending
  • It saves the monies

We were allowed to keep any existing pre-orders. While we didn’t deactivate our Audible accounts, we are not allowed to use any of the unused credits that we have, or return any of the books for the credit back.

I’m doing pretty well right now. Plus, I’ve been saying I need to read what’s on my TBR but haven’t so I am going to try to maximize this opportunity. If you’ve got any other tips for cutting down on my TBR please send them my way.

    Why would any monster say “hey, here’s tips for not buying more books”!? MONEY CAN’T BUY HAPPINESS BUT IT CAN BUY BOOKS WHICH IS BASICALLY THE SAME THING

    But yeah, I got this problem too. Scott buys me a book every month, and he loves the tradition because he’s Scott so he’s a romantic so of course he does, and I’m like ‘I HAVE SO MANY BOOKS TO READ’ but then I’m so excited for my next book …. god, I’m privileged.
