Yes, I have a problem.

I don't want to discuss books again, but I have to. I have a real problem! When I got pregnant I decided that finances had to buckle down, blah, blah, blah. What this meant in my everyday life was no more Starbucks and no more Barnes & Nobles. I even restricted myself going to the best used book store ever. I can't deny myself when it comes to books. I am a book junky.

A couple weeks ago my fellow friend in books called to say that our favorite used book store, the store where we planned to take our children, the store where everyone knows our name (and reading preferences) was closing. The bastard! Only thinking of himself, moving to N. Carolina for the betterment of his family, the nerve. Needless to say I swooped in there and bought a ton of books. They are all half off, they are practically being given away. That was a couple weeks ago.

This weekend I went to B&N.......twice. I don't think my husband realizes the magnitude of my problem. I don't allow myself to go to the full price aisles anymore, only the sale books, but there are so many. I walked away with 3 books and that was using restraint.

The real problem lies in the fact that as soon as I get this "great new book" I want to read it right away, which is not going to happen. So I am all set for the next couple months, if anyone needs a good book to borrow I am so here for you!

(yeah, yeah, I know I promised book reviews, they are coming, I soon as I finish this other book)

I saw a tip on a show the other day that suggested that you buy a gift card to Starbucks or BN or wherever and put a set amount on it at the begining of the month. It's an easy way to buget and stay within your allotted amount.
