Booking Through Thursday: Gluttony

Here's what we're talking about today on Booking Through Thursday:

Mariel suggested this week’s question:

Book Gluttony! Are your eyes bigger than your book belly? Do you have a habit of buying up books far quicker than you could possibly read them? Have you had to curb your book buying habits until you can catch up with yourself? Or are you a controlled buyer, only purchasing books when you have run out of things to read?

Well, I'd have to say that I can answer yes to two of these questions (while covering my face in slight embarrassment). Yes, my eyes are definitely bigger than my book belly. And yes, I have a habit of buying up books far quicker than I could ever possibly read them. Right now, I've got 1,182 books in my house that are waiting to be read. Here's how I managed to get there.....Paperbackswap and Bookmooch. Oh, and used bookstores. And library book sales. And even Goodwill once in awhile. I just cannot seem to resist. Right now, I do have space for every single one of them....but they are getting a little cramped in my bookshelves.

What's to become of me?!?!?! Guess I just need to read faster, huh?
