My book problem

So, I just posted info on the upcoming book sale in Cleveland.  I have never seen a bookstore or or book sale (and some libraries) that I have not walked into.  I knew I had a book buying problem.  So, I decided it would be funny if I collected all the books that I have purchased, but not yet read, over the years and took a picture to show that I really did not need to attend another book sale.  Well, here it is.

That’s Max looking a little nervous that all those books might topple over on him!  So, instead of being funny, it made me a little sad that I had gotten this far behind 😦  I will go to the book sale this weekend, but I’m taking Jason to limit my craziness.  But, then I need to spend a few months reading through my backlog before buying anything new.

So, please, take a look at the different FREE books I offer every month.  I have already read them and need to pass them on.

    Like they say, a picture is worth a . . . . . . . You’ve got some SERIOUS reading to do! I knew there was a real book lover in there when I read you your first book!

    You’ll be happy to know that I limited myself to 10 books at the Case Western book sale last Saturday 🙂

    Wow! That’s fantastic! And, we share several of the same books! 😀

    My own piles are just as bad… you can see my collection here (via — unfortunately not as nice as viewing real pics of books, like you’ve shared here). 😉

    Thanks for the challenge! I have not been using LibraryThing like I should. I’ll have to make a bigger effort to figure it out.

    You posted this before I started blogging. I’m glad I’m not the only one with a book addiction.

    In May I’ll take another picture and see how much progress I’ve made 🙂 Joining the Read Your Own Book Challenge has helped me focus on whittling down the pile.

    I wish I would have taken pics of my books over the years as I accumulated more and more. Now I’m at 3000+ and can barely remember back to when I only had 100. haha! We do love our books. 🙂
