jb72 That‘s just wrong! Books are precious and a vital resource to living a full life in my opinion. 9mo
TheLibrarian I just told my husband it‘s a good thing we moved out of our apartment 😂 9mo
SleepyDragon I watched an episode of Hoarders that involved an enormous collection of books. They had to throw out half of them because of mold, book lice, etc. It was actually making them sick and was also a fire hazard. It was an elderly couple, and the woman had almost died because she had a stroke and the paramedics had a hard time getting to their bedroom in the back and getting her into the ambulance. It's possible to have too much of a good thing. 9mo

Have you ever been told you own too many books? 😃
By who? 😃
What did you tell them? 😃

LaurensLibrary My husband tells me this all the time and I don't even respond. I'm not going to dignify that nonsense with a response. 😋 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @laurenslibrary haha I have a similar response to my husband when he tells me I own too many books because mine are now on the floor. I tell him that if he bought me more bookshelves maybe this wouldn't be a problem 😂😂😂 9mo
Bookjunkie57 The last time I moved my brother threatened to throw out the next box he saw that said books. There was one left so I crossed out books and labeled it “Important Stuff”. That gave everyone a laugh. 9mo

I took this at my book splurge-spree Thursday. I wanted to buy every book on this display except the Alice Network (unread) & All the Light We Cannot See (highly recommend) because i already have those. Sigh such a beautiful sight until i can get home to my own books

I shouldn't pick up the newest copy of Book Page. I always find too many books that I didn't know I needed! Just bought two new books.

zzz Exactly, me too! 1y

I read a lot of books. For those wondering how this is possible, this is me with my kids and son in law. ‘If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.‘ Reading books is my lemonade.

Reggie What a great picture!! 2y
RadicalReader @Dulcinella no greater joy than reading and this is a truly terrific picture!! 2y

I've never been troubled by the amount of books on my Goodreads TBR shelf before, but suddenly today I was overcome by a need to digitally declutter.
I started by removing previews and books I'll never read from my ereader, and now I want to go through my Goodreads TBR and remove the books that I have lost interest in, know I won't read, etc.
Then I might do the same for my physical bookshelves!
I guess the spring cleaning bug has finally got me!

KimmyM UPDATE: I got it down to 924. Progress. I'm going to spend more time on it this weekend. 2y

@Robothugs @Cinfhen
I just keep buying more books on my kindle!
Going to see The Killers next week 😀

MicheleinPhilly Your reasons are not unknown. It‘s because you‘re a bookworm and you have no control when it comes to the “Buy with 1-Click” button. My name is Michele and I also suffer from this affliction. 2y
melissajayne I have the same problem. 2y

Reggie They say the devil‘s water, it ain‘t so sweet. You don‘t have to drink right now, but you can dip your feet every once in a little while........ And he doesnt look a thing like Jesus, but he talks like a gentleman like you remember when you were young. I hope you have a good time @TrishB!!! (edited) 2y
Kalalalatja Have a great time! 👏 2y
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly that may be true 😂 2y
TrishB @AlaMich I have no idea and can't find it again on amazon. It will have been a 99p on kindle! 2y
TrishB @emilyhaldi @Cinfhen @Reggie Looking forward to it 😀 2y

As a general rule I will no longer be posting Book Mail or Book Haul posts on Litsy. (I have two very recent purchases I will post about later today, though.) With my new BookTube channel, I simply don‘t have the time. I will continue to post reviews, blurbs, and quotes on Litsy though. So here is my October book haul video where I talk about each new book at some length and read the opening line or paragraph.


Tamra You won‘t be abandoning us?! 😁 2y
Cinfhen Heading over to check it out!!! But first I need to grab a snack 😜 2y

I think I need to stop buying books retail and going to the library,for a while. Want to rearrange the hoard of books I have ,feeling like it‘s a puzzle and when I take it all apart it will not fit back together.Still looking for bookcases. Giving myself the OK to buy at rummage and seasonal book sales, don‘t want to miss a treasure! Of course ,some in the stash if I read them I don‘t intend to keep them.Any thoughts Littens?

ValerieAndBooks I have those two Book Lust books too 😊. I know there is a newer one (tagged at end). I love my library, but for me it‘s hard to plan my reading around whenever they have the books I want available. I get a lot of my TBRs used and when I weed through it occasionally, don‘t feel too bad because I know I didn‘t spend too much. Even if authors don‘t make much money from me, at least the charities do! 2y
Leftcoastzen @ValerieAndBooks I get mad at myself when I splurge on the hardcover and don‘t get around to it till it‘s in paperback. 🙄But I do a lot of my buying at thrifts and used book sales.Often trading for others or I donate some back.Also have friend who can‘t get out to buy books and has a small budget ,I have a list I work on for her.The randomness of what I find is often more pleasurable than a new book anyway.

When you're already in the middle of five books and all your library holds come in at once.

I started this year with about 80 unread books on my Kindle and now look, 141! And all those ARCs too! #blameitonlitsy 😱🙈🙈

Kangaj1 You can make folders on the kindle? Mind blown. 3y
Moray_Reads @Kangaj1 yes! If never keep everything organised otherwise. It's the button in the top right hand corner (three perpendicular dots), at the bottom of the list there's an option to Create New Collection 😊 3y
JazzFeathers How can that EVER happen? 😉😆 3y
