Am I the only creative person with a disability or a chronic illness who has this problem? I can’t seem to help myself. Now that I have started requesting copies of books to review, it’s getting out of control.
I have never regretted getting a book. I have regretted having to re-home them every time I move, though. I do the same thing on my Kindle. The never-ending supply of free and discounted books has only whetted my appetite.
I know I’ll never run out. I won’t live long enough. But I’ve begun asking myself one question. I’d be curious to see what other people’s answers would be. What purpose do all these books serve in my life? If I’m getting more of them than I can feasibly read, why? I’ve been telling myself that I have to go ahead and get a book while it’s on sale, or I’ll miss the opportunity, which won’t ever come again.
What do you think? If you’re a book addict or hoarder, let me hear from you.
