I am officially on a self declared book fast. It started on November 27th. Now, this does NOT mean that I cannot read books. I just cannot BUY them. I can buy them for my friends for Christmas, but I cannot buy them for my own enjoyment. And I cannot check them out for myself at the library either. I just want to see if I can last two months. And then I will try to buy ONLY one book per month.
It was very painful when I went Christmas shopping last Saturday. I entered Borders with temptation surrounding me. The sights and the smells of all those delicious books!!! And they were off limits!!! But I am proud to say that I did not give into the temptation. I only bought books for my friends, and they were ones I already read….so no cheating by reading new books before giving them out to my friends.
