I've gotten so bad. I think everybody who knows me knows I love reading. I'm a
serious book nerd and I'm not ashamed at all.
But the thing is... I can't. Stop. Buying. Them.
I have this thing where I HAVE to OWN every book I ever read. I get attached to them
and then I feel convinced I'll reread them someday(which doesn't happen as often as I
think it will)
It's not even just that I have to own them, but they have to be a physical copy with
paper and stuff. I refuse to buy a kindle. I don't like the thought of them being
digital. Or even audio.
I like to turn the pages, inhale that paper and ink smell, and lose myself in a
fantasy world.
The problem is... is that lately I've had no time to really read. I still do, but it
takes me twice as long to finish them than it normally would cause I'm so busy.
So... as of now... I have literally like 20 books sitting in my room unread that I
have to get to... and yet... I STILL bought two more today.
I counted and I have around 150 books in my room, but I don't really have enough
shelving, so... they just kind of sit in piles on the floor or in any space I can
I can't even sell them because I'm too attached.
Oh, and then there is the fact that I have a list, pages long, of books I want to
read in the future.
I'm going to be one of those people with a freaking library in my house.
This is bad. omg. But you know, I'm not even ashamed. I EMBRACE IT. Because,
honestly, I could hoard worse things than books, and thankfully it seems to stop with
them... well... and stuffed animals from my childhood, but at least I don't buy more
of those.

I know. I hate getting books out of the library.
I was one of the first to read Hunger Games so then I got mad when it
got popular cause I was like, my book! Mine!

ME TOO! Although I went bazerk when it was made into a movie. I feel
like the popularity has ruined it a bit, cause it isn't as personal,
but it's still a huge part of my life. But... like... books. They're
my drug.

omg i used to be the same way.
i still have nearly 600 books in my room but i haven't touched them in
i'm not really sentimental about them anymore BUT I WAS
and now they're just in my room because there's no room for them
anywhere else

Lol i am the same way! I have like stacks of books all throughout my
room, the books are organized from age and within that they are
alfabetized. And when my brothers go to colledge, i am turning their
room into a library XD

So yeah, you arent the only one >_<

Well at least I can say I don't have quite that many. I probably would
if I had time to actually read anymore, though, because I'm always
adding to that darn list. Every time I cross one off I add three
I only alphabetize mine. But I like to try to keep genres together,
too. It just doesn't work as well.

Well yeah...sometimes i get confused but then i figure what books go
where...i am starting to get to the point where i cant even see my
walls >_<
