Unknowingly I actually participate in a challenge! Who would have thought!
#ReadYourOwnDamnBooks comes from Andi and what’s awesome about it is that there’s no rules other than not buying books and making a serious dent in your TBR.
I am not very competitive and tend to avoid challenges, so also in this one I won’t participate for the whole year – I’m sorry I’m addicted to buying books, I heard the first step is to admit the problem, but I’m not sure I want to be cured, just a small detox will do.
So far so good, January’s over and I didn’t buy a single book!
Instead my wishlist has grown exponentially.
Oh and when I visited my family home recently I brought back full backpack of books – I didn’t buy them so maybe we can count them under a widely defined TBR. They are owned by my mum, they’re almost mine! 😉
It’s not easy, but it has made my reading more diverse. I cannot just read the ‘new thing’ everyone raves about, because the last ‘new thing’ I managed to get before the lockdown was ‘A Brief History of Seven Killings’ (still in TBR). I hope I’ll read some of the classics that have been sitting on my TBR forever.
Please share your tricks on how am I supposed to last another 2 months!
