You are all more than welcome to skip over this post. This is sort of like a contract to myself.I have a bit of an issue. I check out way too many books from the library at once and I'm addicted to the online reservation system.
The Good Things
- There's always something good to read
- They're books I can't find somewhere in my room or from my friends/family
The Bad Things
- I end up neglecting the books that I do have and the books just sit on my shelves gathering dust instead of being read and/or reread.
- I make all sorts of promises to review books that I own, but because of reason number one, I never get around to doing that.
My piles of books that I own or have borrowed from friends/family have piled up to such a degree that I'm going to start taking action. After this third time checking out some books and audio books, I'm going to take them all back, get maybe one or two that I know for sure I'm going to read, then go back home and once I finish those, I'll begin on the ones I own or borrowed.
That is what I'm going to resolve to do over the next month or two. We'll see how this works. I know I won't finish all of the owned/borrowed books in that time, but maybe I'll be able to make a decent dent.
Let's see how this all shapes out now.
