Help, it is official. I am a book buying addict and seriously need some help. Yesterday I bought seven books and the day before I bought six! OK, they were all from charity shops, so I didn't pay a lot for them and some of them were on my TBR list, but still it is not good is it.
I definitely buy books as a comfort thing. At Christmas, I made a big decision to lose weight and the biggest thing I needed to overcome was my comfort eating. I would always eat if I was distressed or unhappy. I am quite a highly strung person, so as you could imagine I would eat a lot. So when I started to lose weight, I had to find another comfort blanket and I found that in books. If I am upset I buy a book (normally secondhand). I figured that I don't smoke and definitely don't drink so where is the harm. Two full bookcases later and I am starting to worry. Luckily I have a very understanding and practical husband, whose answer is just to buy more book shelves. He is having visions of a library in our next house! So the buying will continue, as the weight loss continues. When I reach my goal weight I may just have a quick clothes buying obsession, but then it will be back to books!
Anyway, enough of my waffling, this week I have finished reading two books and read another one. They are as follows:
This week I have started reading the following three books.
1) Mudbound by Hilary Jordan. A book for the Southern Reading Challenge.
2) The Shamers Signet by Lene Kaaberbol, the second book in the Shamers Chronicles.
3) The Gorgons Gaze by Julia Golding, the second book in the Companions Quartet.
I am also reading a couple of books for You Gotta Read Reviews which you will find here.
This week I am hoping for some down time as my house has just been so hectic this week. What kind of week are you hoping for?
