Book Buying Ban — Will I Regret This?

Hey fellow bookworms!

Something is coming that I never thought would happen…

I am putting myself on a book buying ban! I buy too many books and I never have time to read them. Even the #TackleTBR read-a-thon did not help much. Ugh!


So. I am using this opportunity to catch up on some previous books I have purchased but never got around to reading. Like the couple of Ellen Hopkins books that I usually read as soon as I get them. But I haven’t. Or I will use this time to knock out my NetGalley TBR and hopefully get those reviews posted.

I am going to try my best to not buy any books between now and the new year. I will update progress posts as the weeks days go on. No more 1-click Spree posts. No more book hauls.

This is going to suck.

But I did it to myself.


Wish me luck!

Have you guys put yourself on a book buying ban before? If so, how did it go? Did your inner bookworm win the battle? Or did you exercise self-control?

Maybe both?

  1. I rarely get a chance to buy any books so I’ve never had to ban myself. Wow, that’ll be hard to not buy a single book between now and the new year.

      Nice! 🙂 Yeah, it’ll definitely be hard, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to do it. I checked earlier today on NetGalley and I have 27 books in that review queue. Ahhhh! I need to get cracking!

      1. Woah! Good luck on all of those reviews 🙂

    I tried it…but it never worked. There was always a sale that I couldn’t resist. Now I’ve just contented myself with admitting that I’m a bookaholic. It works for me ‘cos it’s my only vice 🙂

    1. Kendra Kendra says:

      Haha, I feel like that is going to happen. I love sales on books, so I might prove to break this ban.

    I’m pretty much on a book buying ban all the time! I have so little money to spend on books, I just only seem to buy maybe twenty or so a year (which sounds like a lot but really isn’t!). I’ve had to put myself on a library ban before though, since I routinely check out fifteen or twenty for two weeks at a time. Best of luck with the book ban!

      Haha, nice! Thanks! So far, it’s going good. I have an addiction with the free Kindle section at Amazon. That is definitely my biggest problem. Ok, well, not exactly a problem, but ya know. 😉 Over 1600 free books on my Kindle app! Lol! Then I tend to read some of those before my review copies and I miss deadlines. The never ending cycle hehehe
