My Book Addiction: It Grows!

I've been at it again . . . buying more books, that is! A couple of weeks ago, I hit a local high school book fair and then of course, I had to finally use up some gift cards that were burning a hole in my pocket! Add to that, a book that I won in a giveaway, and you get a box of books to add to my collection! Let's take a look at my growing addiction . . .

Here's the stack of books I gathered at the book fair! Sadly, I got home and realized I already had one of these books. Guess I will need to see what I can do with the extra!

And then, we have the special books I received after using some giftcards.

Lastly, the book that I won from a giveaway hosted on Carol's Notebook. I told myself that I would not enter anymore giveaways until I read at least a few books off of my shelves, but I had a hard time passing up entering this one!

What books have you been excited to receive lately?


  1. I feel your pain. I can't seem to stop buying books and entering giveaways. My bookshelves are sagging and crying for me to stop! I'm addicted and I love it!

  2. Ah, that's quite a pile!
    I'm feeling virtuous because I haven't bought any reading books so far this year, I did buy one book a few days ago, but technically I don't think it counts, and I'll post on it in two weeks or so.

  3. I love the Outlander series, I've actually reread a few of them! Looks like a lot of good reads. It is good to have choices when you are looking for your next book.

  4. Laura's Reviews . . . I've been trying to control myself this year! It is just sooooo hard!

    Suey . . . Now I need to find the time to read it!

    Tracy . . . I wish I had the will power that you have! I need to control this addiction!!

    Jill . . . And, I do have a lot of choices! Someday, I need to actually take a picture of my TBR piles and post them here!

  5. I can't wait to read your thoughts on The Book Thief! Many of your other choices look intriguing. The addiction is strong-but better books than drugs-or so I tell my husband!

  6. Peaceful Reader . . . LOL! That is so true!! I need to start using that one on my hubby!

  7. carolsnotebook . . . You would know! BTW, totally meant to give you a little link love! All fixed!! :)

  8. Who among us hasn't accidentally brought home duplicate copies? I tried to keep a list of all the books I already own, but it grew too fast!

    I'm with Peaceful Reader on this one...I keep telling my DH that he's lucky I'm not addicted to shoes or jewelry! *L*

  9. Alexia561 . . . I am so glad to hear that I am far from being the only one that buys duplicates of books! My only addictions are books and bags to carry them in! Nothing like diamonds and heels! :)

  10. This is so great! I wish I could collect and read books at the rate you do. :)

  11. Cayla . . . Lately, I've been doing much more collecting than reading!! But, I will be prepared!! :)
