On not buying books
I have decided - from now and for the whole of next year - to not buy any books.
Any books at all.
Not a one. Not from bookstores, or book depository, or amazon, or charity book sales, or the library sales ... well, you get the idea.
We're saving for a big move, probably at the start of 2014, from where we are now to near where Jeremy's parents live. I'm simply transferring offices rather than jobs, so it's going to be costly, which means that sacrifices have to be made.
The good thing is that we have an excellent library here, and I have more than enough books on my own shelves to keep me occupied for the next year.
For MORE than the next year, let's be honest.
So. No new shiny books for me for a year or so.
That'll be challenging. :-)
