Mariel suggested this week’s question: Book Gluttony! Are your eyes bigger than your book belly? Do you have a habit of buying up books far quicker than you could possibly read them? Have you had to curb your book buying habits until you can catch up with yourself? Or are you a controlled buyer, only purchasing books when you have run out of things to read?
Yes, we love books at our house. Before I rediscovered my local library, I was always buying a new book or two at every opportunity. For me, for my husband, for my boys. My TBR pile is huge. I keep working my way through it, but it keeps getting bigger. I receive books in the mail to review and they add to it. I see books on Goodreads or reviews from other bloggers and I get those books from the library and it keeps getting bigger.
It's nice when there is no time limit on when a book needs to be read. It's also nice to have a ready-made reading stack available. The only thing I have "curbed" in the last year or so, is how many books I actually purchase. The library has been very good for my pocketbook. I can read it there, first, and if I really like it, then I can purchase it later. My real weakness is my boys. I can say no to a lot of things, but when they bring home school book orders, I have to set limits or we would go crazy!!

I am having vision issues which is terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.
