I’m down to 5 books that won’t fit on my bookshelves. Also, I don’t know how I accomplished it, but I went to a bookstore and, for probably the first time in my life (at least willingly), I didn’t buy any books! It might have helped that the couple of books I saw that I know I want to read are still only available in hardcover, and I don’t want to read them soon enough to pay the hardcover price. In the past, I don’t know if that would’ve stopped me, but I also reminded myself of the overflowing shelves of books I still haven’t read and my current financial goals (I’m saving up for a car and trying to boost my retirement savings).
