Oh my! I saw this post on
In Between Writing and Reading and I thought, OMG, I have to pledge too!
What is this exactly? This? This is me making it official. This is my pledge. This is the promise of a determined blogger with book buying issues admitting her problem, suffering over her solution, but committed to it. Indeed, I want to cry every time I think of this pledge, because I am a really really slow reader, I'll just suck it up then.
The First Step - admitting you have a problem.
Hello, my name is Proserpine and I am a book buying addict.
There, that wasn't so hard. But the hardest part is to come!
Do you have a problem as well?
If you do, feel free to join me and Jude. Grab the badge, place it on your blog, make the pledge and compromise! and then of course you can also come cry with me.
I will not buy any more books until and only until I have read 5 books in my current TBR Pile.
And once I do finish reading my 5 books, I cannot buy more than another 5 books.
Exceptions: Gift Cards - if you get one, go spend it. If it's your birthday - Congrats! Christmas. And just in case there's doubt here - it's ok to get free books and/or obtain them through book tours, you can be guilt free for making your TBR even bigger.
Well I was happy that the last bunch of books was bought by my husband...hehe...Well I will try to respect that one, it will please my husband and my wallet too! If you want to pledge as I did and as Jude you can check for the information on her blog here!
