Riddle me this, virtual folk.

Say someone had this many books in their tbr pile

+ 8 books to review for another blog

+ looming deadlines associated with the evil day job

+ lack of motivation due to sheer boredom and a crappy week.

Would you, hypothetically speaking, say it was fucking stupid obsessive bordering on manic idiotic to the extreme not in the best interests of a bit silly for said person to order more novels from the tame romance bookstore???

Let me know when you come up with the right answer.

    I’d be careful, if I were you, Kris. You may have to venture out to IKEA again for another bookcase.

  2. Sean Kennedy says:

    Look, I can’t laugh. I’m in danger of being crushed by my TBR pile when it topples.

  3. Kris says:

    Jen, I’ve been hunting Australia-wide for that fucking bookcase. It is not to be mentioned. Ever. Again. Unless I find one, of course. *g*

  4. Kris says:

    Yeah, Sean, but does your girl think that any book lying around is a toy?? The boy kittens have absolutely no respect. I’m now thinking about bookcases with glass doors so that they can look, but not touch, chew, scratch, rip, etc, etc. Needless to say, the tbr pile is safely hidden away. Hmm, that’s probably why I haven’t read them. Out of sight and all that.

  5. Kristie (J) says:

    I’m *cough* not really one to ask ’cause I cave like a wet kleenix in a rain storm when it comes to buying myself new books.

  6. Kris says:

    Thank the Gods I’m not the only one, Kristie. *phew* Good company for like-minded folk. *g*

  7. Tam says:

    Hell, I’m one to talk. Mind you, I never buy more books till I’m down to about 5 TBR and they are ones that have been sitting there waiting for a month or two so the chances of me reading them are getting slimmer. Sigh. Oh and I just bought two “real” books today at the GLBT bookstore that I already have in e-book format and have read numerous times, but they were used (perfect condition, I’d question if they were really read) and half price so how could I resist? See, you’re not alone. At least its not crack or meth. That’s what I tell myself. 😉

  8. Kris says:

    At least you have a system, Tam. Me, no chance in hell. Maybe I need to ask Wave for a week off at some stage and give myself another tbr challenge and read them all in one hit. Granted I nearly didn’t survive the last, but it would serve to make me feel less guilty. :)Are you not going to tell me what books you bought or are you keeping it a secret?? Let be put it another way. TELL. ME. NOW. So that I may live vicariously.

  9. Tam says:

    Oh sorry. I bought 911 by Chris Owen and Without Reservations by JL Langley. I ALMOST bought With Caution which I like slightly more but it was new and therefore twice the price. I still haven’t finished Vulnerable that I got for Christmas as well as Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, also a Christmas gift. Sigh. Ummm, you know those Psycop books? Well, ummm, I’m almost done the last one. Sigh. What’s that, 5 books in 4 days? Because I also bought the couple of short stories she had. Sigh. But I’m obviously loving them or I wouldn’t be glued to them all weekend.

  10. Kris says:

    I’m glad you’re loving the PsyCop series as much as me and all, but… holy shit, Tam! It’s now official. There is someone in the world who reads more than I do.JCP is terrific writer though, isn’t she. 🙂 I’m tempted to get her Channeling Morpheus series, which I’ve heard is also very good.BTW, noice book choices. It’s reminded me that I really must order a hard copy of Vintage.

  11. Sean Kennedy says:

    No, thankfully, she leaves the books along. My iPod, however…

  12. Sean Kennedy says:

    Along? AlonE. Obviously I need sleep.

  13. Kris says:

    Poor you. Too much celebrating the launch of your book, Sean?? *g*My boy Boris ate the power for my ereader. I was ready to club him over the head and make some pretty grey-blue gloves, but was talked out of it.Hey check this out: http://reviewsbyjessewave.blogspot.com/2009/03/tigers-and-devils.html. It might bring a smile to your face. 🙂

  14. Sean Kennedy says:

    Kris, I wish! It is the awful thing known as the dayjob that is proving to be very distracting and soul-destroying.Mina thinks the earbuds are taaasty.And that definitely brought a smile to my face 🙂

  15. Tracy says:

    LOLOL Omg it IS crazy but I do it ALL THE TIME! lol I just feel better having the ones I want to read in my house so I can grab them when I want them. Obsessive much Trac? Nah!

  16. Kris says:

    *giggle* We can start our own club, Tracy… Book Sluts R Us: “You got it, we want it!” No TBR is too small.

  17. Tracy says:

    I like Book Sluts R Us It’s a keeper.

  18. Kris says:
