This weeks topic is: Do Book Buying Bans Work For You

I’m going to have to say no, book buying bans don’t work for me. I can go awhile without buying books though. I think it’s important to treat yourself and make yourself happy. If buying books does that then so be it. You buy those books, dangit! I think the only time it becomes a “bad” thing to buy books is when you’re always buying books but never reading them. But even then, it’s not bad.

But like I said, book buying bans never worked for me because I like to be happy and sometimes buying books does that for me. I like to be smart about money but never limit myself on what I can or should buy. I’m not sure if that makes sense. However, I’m not going to lie… sometimes I do get overwhelmed with my TBR and tell myself to not buy books but if I do, I don’t feel guilty about it! 🙂

Do book buying bans work for you? Why or why not?

  1. I put myself on a book buying ban in 2020 and 2021 and neither time was 100% successful. My goal was to just stop buying so many physical books because I’m literally out of room on my bookshelf. While the ban wasn’t 100% successful I will say it definitely helped me to cut back. More so in 2021 I think.
