You may recall me attempting to go on a book buying ban earlier this year, and yet ending up with my mum buying me tonnes of books instead. I’ve decided I have way too many books on my to-be-read pile, and ever since Danny made his video declaring he too was participating in a book ban, I decided enough was enough.
I have completely
stolen copied Danny’s idea. The rules of my book buying ban are simple.
I must read 10 books from my TBR shelf (YA or otherwise) before I am allowed to buy another book. For every 10 books I read, I will allow either myself or a family member to buy me one book.
Hopefully this should get my TBR pile down. These ten books are books I’ve bought or received from someone else, not review copies. I will still read as many of those as I can. This doesn’t include recent pre-orders either. I have pre-ordered quite a few books, and I refuse to cancel the orders because I’m dying to read most of them, such as If I Die, the Hush, Hush graphic novel etc.
I may pick out ten books from my shelf that I plan to read first, so stay tuned for that. I’m going to have lots of fun rummaging through the shelves to try and pick just ten books.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to ask you guys if any of you are currently on a book ban, or if you’re thinking about starting one, or even if you’ve done one in the past. How are you/did you do? Was it hard? I’m worried!
Wish me luck!
