Book Addicts R Us
« on: February 28, 2008, 05:09:06 am »
I feel  books are more like drugs - its my addiction people collect shoes, stamps of bags. Its books for me- I just checked out the sellers on amazon and they have it in stock although they are based in the US - but its too expensive although I'm tempted very very tempted.

Doesn't mean you're not an enabler, just means you're not a spoiler.

Exhibit A:

Do it Do it you want it, know you want it. ;D

I rest my case.  :D

Hmm, sounds like this could be an interesting topic for a new thread.

Thought this might be appropriate for this thread. :D I consider this to include books. ^^

*stands up*

Hi, my name is mazoku and I have a problem. I'm an obsessive-compulsive buyer of books: if I walk into a bookstore I can't go out with my hands empty. So, to avoid spending all of my money, I stopped walking into bookstores. Unfortunately, I stumbled upon an internet bookstore, and so the problem came back. After trying to resist its lure, I decided I'm not strong enough and succumbed. Now the courier man knows me by name and asks me what books I bought this time. My friends tried to help me, but they succumbed too and now I'm officially their pusher. I even bought a messenger bag so I can have the book I'm reading always at hand (you never know where or when you might have to wait in line).
The upside of all this is: all my money disappear in buying books/mangas/candies (I can't read if I can't munch some candies ;)) and so this leaves no space to other addictions.

*sits down*

Life is so f*cking good if you have good books to read!! ;D

LOL

I also like to say that we should celebrate this addiction and be proud of it! We should have a book addict day ;D on Hurog one day.

So today was my local library's semi-annual used books sale. They sell both their cast-offs and donations which can include dvd's, vhs, cd's and audio tapes. I made out like a bandit - 6 paperbacks, 1 audio story and 14 movies on vhs. *sigh of contentment*

That should help you rest quietly at home so you don't end up hospitilized.

As long as I can keep the cabin fever at bay. Tomorrow I will stay home and not do any errands, not even taking out the trash.
