Book diet

I don't know if I've mentioned it, but I am on a self-imposed book diet. I did buy one book this week, but it was a knitting book, which doesn't count. I mean, yeah, it counts some, but not as much, because it's not something that's getting added to Mount TBR (actually that is more a mountain range, not one mountain). And I had to take advantage of my husband's 25% discount at Borders during Educator Appreciation days, naturally.

But back to the book diet. I'm doing very well. I went in Half Price Books this afternoon to waste some time while waiting to take Eli to gymnastics, and, get this, I didn't walk out with anything! Go me! I did think my strength was going to be tested this week when I thought they were going to have a book sale at work (the configuration of the tables looked suspiciously like what they use for their periodic book sale). Actually, I know I would have failed that test. There's no way I can pass up $1 books.

Walking out of a bookstore with no books...I am mighty impressed!

I am, indeed, a goddess! :-)

That said, I am counting the days until the Texas Library Association conference next week where I plan to grab as many ARCs as I can get my grubby little hands on. Yes, goddesses can have grubby little hands.

I too have frequently attempted the rigors of the book diet, although I have falled BADLY off the wagon in recent years. You are a champ!
