Do you ever feel book guilt?
Guilt for that never ending, ever increasing TBR pile?
Do you feel guilty for not LOVING the latest it book like everyone else does?
Are you guilty of borrowing a book and still not having read it weeks, if not months later?
I can answer a very loud, and very not proud yes to all of those questions and more...
|Read me NOW!|
Both my Kindle and Kobo are filled with an array of impulse purchases and freebies, and I am always buying books that then sit on my bookshelf unread, calling my name, 'Read me Cath, read me now!'
I get asked to review books and I almost always say yes, and then feel sick with guilt when I still haven't had a chance to read them months later.
I've tried lists, scheduling, saying no - my laundry is usually a mile high, dinner on the table late...but somehow I still end up behind, forever playing catch up; forever feeling guilty :(
Surely I'm not the only one crazy enough to feel this guilt, am I?
I am a people pleaser...
I have yes disease...
I like to keep everyone happy, and suffer tremendous guilt when I can't fulfill a commitment whether real or imagined.
Do I think I can be cured?
Can I shrug it off and get over it?
Will I ever change, and do I really want to?
Honest answer, probably not - no!
Will I continue to buy books?
Will I keep accepting review books?
Self abuse and examination of book guilt over, I'd better hit that TBR pile and read something!!!
Do you suffer from book guilt?
Are you a people pleaser too?
Please don't let me be alone - LOL!!
