It’s almost June, RWA conference is coming up in a couple months, and I already have more books in my TBR pile than I can read by July. Now is the time to declare a book buying moratorium.
I always overspend at Nationals so I came up with this process a couple years back. I would stop buying books a couple of months before conference in order to save up a bit. Plus the RWA literacy signing is for charity so they do encourage you to buy books there and not drag in your bookshelf from home to be signed.
It’s killing me this year. Sherry Thomas’ His at Night is coming out…Joanna Bourne’s next book is coming. I can buy them all at Nationals, but…but…
Another thing about the buying freeze is it also frees me up a little to finish whatever imaginary deadline I’ve given myself before Nationals. This year the goal is to finish the first draft of my paranormal, Sorcerer’s Daughter.
Speaking of deadlines. I suppose they’re no longer imaginary…*shudders*
So the freeze starts…now. 🙁
P.S. I am making two allowances for two category books that come out in June that I really, really want. Now that I know how category sales are time sensitive, I have to buy these two books to support the authors. But that’s it!
P.P.S. I’ve decided checking out books from the library is still okay.
