{i'm a book-a-holic}

i am a book-a-holic.
as i have said before, here and here, i have a major book buying addiction. it is a serious addiction. if i have not bought a book a while {meaning a month} i start to go a little stir crazy. please don't judge.
 for the past five years or so, i have always spent a big chunk of my Christmas money on books. and thus i have amassed quite a nice size library--4, six foot bookcases worth. while i hate to admit it, i have only read about half of my collection. so when i heard about The Deliberate Reader's 2013 Reading Challenge I knew i had to take part in it!
{one of the best things about this book challenge is that you make your own rules.} i have decided to follow in the footsteps of the deliberate reader and have decided to read 24 books from my own bookshelves. this means...
 *i will only read books from my own bookshelves.
*i will not buy a book just to read it as part of this challenge. *any books i buy this year will not count towards this challenge.
so, if you love to read, join me and the deliberate reader as we read our way through 2013.

happy reading!


  1. Very happy to have you along for the challenge!

  2. Oh love this! Need to go look at my book shelves and see what my challenge may be. :)

  3. Ooh, I'm intrigued and I love The Deliberate Reader. I'll have to head over and check out the challenge. And thanks for visiting my blog, nice to 'meet' you.

  4. Great idea. My husband and I have had the same problem -- book buying -aholics! Now, we have e-readers and it is too easy to push the "buy" button on Amazon. I'm joining in on the Deliberate Reader's challenge too.


thank you for your comment...i read every one and they make me smile.
