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.

[…] Uncategorized 2009 goals, Books, challenges, reading stacybuckeye 11:42 am I’ve decided to participate in my first reading challenge.  This one is right up my alley and it should help me clear off my shelves.  The challenge is to read books already on my shelf.  If you haven’t seen how many that is for me, check this out.  […]

  4. 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 LibraryThing.com — 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.

  5. 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.

  11. 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. 🙂
