May 22: Book Buying Bans
Have you ever put yourself on a book buying ban?
In fact, I am on one right now. I am not allowed to buy any books with my own money until the first day of summer. It's a good thing that I love to enter giveaways :-)
Do you believe that book buying bans actually can make a difference?
Yes. It's like one of those chain reaction Direct TV commercials.
- A book ban helps me save money.
- It encourages me to utilize my local library services more.
- Spending time at the library forces me to interact with more readers.
- Interaction exposes me to a wider variety of books.
- Variety encourages me to be more choosey about what I spend my money on to read.
- Being choosey means no more buying books just because they are on sale.
At what point do you decide that it's really time to put yourself on a book buying ban?
When my e-reader gets too full of bargain books.
When I have a pile of books from PaperBackSwap that haven't been read yet.
When I get frustrated about what to read next because I have too many options at my finger tips.
So what are your thoughts?

Special thanks to Oh Magic Hour for putting on to this meme! I might go back and answer the previous May questions ;-)
