Pile Denial: 3


I am in denial.

It is ugly but it is nevertheless the state of things.

Here I will document my struggle with my book obsession. Behold my denial in all of its glory.

Here are the numbers of books hanging out on my TBR pile.

Pile Truth:
Books: 49
eBooks: 29

Progress report: The week didn't turn out so well for me. I might have let last weeks progress get to my head. I picked up a book at the library after some a very strong recommendation. I've been promised some good laughs. There was this one day I stumbled across two Amazon freebies and just couldn't help myself. Lastly, I was wandering down the book aisle at the store and had a moment of weakness. I just can't seem to grasp the idea that prevention is better than restraint. It also didn't help that I got stuck in my reading this week. Getting stuck is worse than a bad read. When I get stuck my attention and desire tends to wander. I find myself doing anything to get out of reading. Not a good place to be when you have a giant pile of books needing to be read. How can I have dug myself into such an enormous hole? Oh why do I keep adding more books this week? 11 inbound 2 outbound = 9 more books in the pile. Hahaha, I have lost my mind this week. Oh my goodness, this is going to set me back so very much. I may have to admit defeat. I may have to enter a rehabilitation program. Someone might need to stage an intervention.

How about you? Are you in denial?
