Book Buyers Anonymous

I was going through my google reader yesterday and I found a little support group for Book Buyers like me. I found out that I'm NOT the only one who has a problem!
So the first step is admitting you have a problem right?? Well, Hi my name is Jamie and I'm a book addict. I don't have a TBR pile....I have a TBR MOUNTAIN. The MAJORITY of the books on my bookcase AND my under the bed storage box haven't been read. Maybe "book addict" is putting it nicely....hoarder maybe a better word.
So I am officially putting myself on a book ban for the remainder of this month. The only books that don't count toward this ban are: The Search and Linger...both of which I pre-ordered.
If you want to join the group go here to join up. This doesn't have to be an all or nothing thing either...you can come up with your own rules. It just happens to be an all or nothing thing for me....because I have sooooo many books that I haven't read yet.
If you join the group let me know so I can drop by and encourage you....please drop me all sorts of encouragement...I'm going to need it.

I really should do this, REALLY should do this, but I find buying books, hitting the book store, brings a peace to me, that nothing else does besides reading - yes my shelves are lined with books yet to be read...but then, authors work hard, and I will read them eventually - I want to support them, but gosh - maybe I am a hoarder too...I keep having to find NEW places to display them as I hate to have them sitting unseen, but then again maybe no one would notice when I get MORE if they are hidden LOL

Good for you, I wish I had the ability to do this, maybe I need someone to hold me accountable! LOL

Oh and Linger, yeah ENJOY IT...OMG ITS AWESOME LOL :D

I would love to do this, but I would probably suck at it. I'm to much of a addict, and too many great books coming out in the next 3 to 4 months XD
