The Life Of A Book Addicted

I will be honest with you, its not easy being a book addicted. I should know because I am one. Over the past few months I've bought more books than I probably have in the last three years. I've always loved reading but now I've become a full blown addict. Perhaps one day it will slow down, but as of right now I'm just enjoying the ride.

Just before I wrote this I had in fact bought two books from amazon. In my defence they were on sale so I couldn't pass it up. I also have a few books on the way from a previous order. 98% of the books that I buy are e-books for my Kindle, but occasionally I buy paperbacks when they are not available in Kindle format.

Being a book addicted is hard you buy and read lots of books, but you always want more. My son goes to nursery five days a week for three hours, during that time I'm in the library reading and then I have at least four hours to myself in the evening and two of those are spent reading.

For Christmas I've mostly asked for Amazon vouchers and books. I started a reading challenge on Goodreads for this year and I put my challenge to read 100 books this year I'm almost at 70 so not bad.

Next year I might increase the amount to 150 seeing as I'll have the full 12 months to read.

I like reading but am not that bad about it. Good luck on getting to 100

I can relate. I enjoy reading a lot. Sometimes, it's hard to walk out a bookstore without buying anything, but I do manage to do it.

I am the same way. I can't pass up buying books I really want to read, plus my Mother gives me magazines she no longer reads. I am a reading addict.

I am also an avid reader. I like the Ebook versions but I still prefer the hardback and paperback versions. I really like reading the classics along with historical fiction like John Jakes and James Michener.I like all the details that they write for when I read their books I can exactly enter the book and I am there. Does that sound weird?
