Not spending on books this year (apart from my little 'blip' at the start of this month) means that slowly but surely I am working my way through my own large book collection. I did a series of posts about all my books on the other blog last year and if I remember correctly it turned out I had over 600. Of course by the end of the year and with Christmas presents that total grew even higher.
Now that the total is barely being added to I can really get stuck in reading through what I already have instead of adding new purchases to an ever increasing 'must read' pile. I'm finding some that I must have bought simply because I already had the writer's previous book, maybe not even read yet, but making me want to have a 'complete set', this is something I am most definitely curing myself of.
This stacking books horizontally on top of others on the shelves is already a thing of the past so the overall total must be going down .... thank goodness.
