Now THAT was funny. But even with all the exceptions, codicils, and caveats, buying books is one thing I'll never say "never" to. I may not buy another one for the next couple of weeks, but I can't commit any more than that.


I'm vowing to stop buying books in hardcover that I never get around to reading until they're already out in paperback anyhow! Grrr, it makes me crazy when I do that!


Albert Einstein said, "Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little fall into lazy habits of thinking." --quoted in Tim Ferriss's "The 4-Hour Workweek.

I think I'm cured of my book-buying/book-reading addiction.


I'll NEVER stop reading books -- and I probably won't stop buying them, either.... Regardless of what Einstein or anyone else says.


I really SHOULD say I'll never buy another book because I absolutely have no more room for more books! I always read them, that's not the issue. But my bookshelves runneth over, the spare room runneth over, the rented storage unit runneth over...you get the picture. What I need to do is get RID of a bunch of books. Or some books. Or maybe one or two...(Or move into a bigger house with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves in every room!)


Maybe you could institute a "one book in, one book out" rule. Then at least you won't be ADDING to your problem.
