Considering I own over 4000 books, I have a difficult time justifying the purchase of new books when there are so many unread ones on my shelves. I did the math, and if you subtract the ones I’ve already read, then divide the remaining by my average 100 books read per year, it will take me at least 35 years to read everything in my current collection. That’s not even taking into account all of the new amazing books that will come out in that timeframe (I can think of at least 20 I want in the next few months alone). Because of this, I have recently started to clear out some of the titles I know I won’t get to within the next ten years. There are so many unread series that I am excited for that I honestly haven’t missed the ones I was only casually interested in. Let the book purge begin!
Does that mean I’ve stopped purchasing books altogether? Uh, no. Not even close. I’m just a little more picky. :-)
Here’s a look at my library’s new additions:
Thank you Netgalley!
There you have it – my month of splurges for September!
What books stacked your shelves this week?
Good haul this week :) I can’t wait to read All Our Yesterdays. And I have a copy of Inhuman, but haven’t quite gotten to it yet. Happy reading! :)
I read all our yesterdays as and arc and liked it so much I bought it in hardcover – I hope you like it just as much!
Loads of great books there, can’t wait to see what you think of them! Love the way you stacked your books too, inventive. :)
Thank you – I felt particularly inspired, ha ha. I’m excited to read these – I’ve done all our yesterdays already but the others I’ll probably pick up within the next couple of months. did you see this?! http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18453091-thief-s-magic
