No more borrowing from the library?

We had to re-do our basement flooring. That means, I had to move all my books out from the basement.

(Exercise time! That's about 30 boxes of books! Well We have the Ikea Expedit 5x5 bookcase, and some shelves are 2 books deep. And you know books aren't light, especially the hardcover textbooks!)

Which reminded me that t I still have so many un-read books! I really need to stop borrowing more books from the library, so that I can read what I have first (and usually after I read them, I give them away, unless it is something I really love).

Sigh. Not visiting other blogs mean I borrow less books from the library already since I don't know what is new out there, but I do miss visiting your blogs.

Maybe after reading what I'd borrowed from the library (and what I have on reserve), I will stop borrowing from the library until the end of the year, to see how many books I can go through. I can't buy more bookcases!

  1. Ah, yes. Other book bloggers give me great recommendations, but that only means my book piles grow faster than I can read them. There are worse problems :)

    1. True - first world problem! :) I add sooooo many books on my "to read" list on goodreads... too many books, too little time! I can read books all day long... if only we're rich and don't have to work or clean the house or look after the kiddo or.... :)

  2. The upside is not visiting other blogs leaves you with A LOT more time on your hands. I'm having to trim down the number of blogs I follow. It's becoming counterproductive.

    1. You are right - I am using netvibes instead of google read now and can move the widget of each blog around, so I can prioritize which blogs I do go... but I missed the old blog visiting days!

  3. Oh my what a project. You probably have the books you sometimes borrow too, lol. I haven't been around lately either. Thrill Week should be now and I didn't plan, oh well, maybe next year.

    1. I was wondering about Thrill Week! Yes maybe next year... unless you want to do it around Halloween? :)

  4. Oh I'm with you! I keep borrowing more books from the library and reading less of my own books. I don't know if I can ever stop going to the library, but I do need to pick more from my stack somehow.

    1. I don't know if I can stop going to the library either! But I think I need to really put a limit on what I borrow...
