In My Mailbox (November 1)

In my mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren, who was inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. Here are the books I got this week...


Well, I didn't get anything this week. I'm still trying to work through my TBR pile...so we'll see how that goes.

On the up side, I haven't purchased a book in a few weeks...good for me!

I should probably make myself go on a bit of a book-acquiring hiatus, my TBR pile is absolutely out of control!

What Book is That?

Same here! I've reduced my TBR pile down to two books xD

and I've been resisting buying books(or borrowing them from the library)... it's actually been getting easier for me :)

I'm at the same point, catching up. I have actually been dreaming about buying books the last couple nights. That has to be a bad sign... ;)

Hi Lizzy! Congratulations on not buying any books and working on your TBR pile! I keep promising myself that I'll stop until my TBR piles are smaller, but it's much harder than I expected. You have more willpower than me! *L*

Good for you! Lol :-D I am proud of myself as well. I can now go into a bookstore without buying a single thing. Don't get me wrong, I still go through withdrawal pains... :)

How I reduced my TBR pile you ask? Very simple! I make myself not go to the library AT ALL (although I'm constantly wondering what I'm missing) and with the big pile of books I have at home, I just put them into two categories: "books that I've been wanting to read" and "books that I HAVE to read because I promised I would".

My TBR pile shrinked immediately. I still have my other pile of books that I want to read (but don't have to) and put them where I don't see them everyday. That way, I'm not tempted to pick them up and stray away from the book that I HAVE to read.

It's all mind games I tell you!!! xD
