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.

  2. i almost never get a chance to read a novel, the last time i read one cover to cover was 4 years ago.  why are you going on a “book fast”?

  3. Why can’t you check out books at the library?
    P.S.  I love Borders too!  If you’re a Borders Rewards member, just ignore all the discount e-mails and coupons!
    P.P.S.  If  you’re free, we should hang out!  I haven’t seen you in so long!
