Back in August, the marvellous Katie and I challenged ourselves to not buy any more books for the rest of the year, unless we need them for our studies. So far, I am doing marvellously, and haven’t purchased a single unnecessary tome – shock horror! I confess that I have not been the best person in terms of self-restraint in the past, and have failed at almost any book-buying ban which I have put myself on. This time, though, it feels wonderful to have the support of a good friend, and I am hoping that we can both make according dents into our packed TBR shelves. I am – rather dramatically, I feel – titling this project ‘Death to the TBR’, and shall aim to get through as many as I can in the next few months.
Have you challenged yourself to read a number of your TBR books before purchasing more? Or alternatively, do you buy books as you see and want them?
