It seems to me that enforcing a book-buying moratorium on myself would be fully hypocritical since I'm going to spend the rest of my life encouraging people to purchase books with my name on them, so I'm going to go on a book-buying diet for a few months, and see if I can't lose 10% of my bookweight.

That would be, actually, unread bookweight. Because I did actually do a cull and took a bag of books to the library to donate. PLUS I took a bag of books that has been in my car's trunk for about two years.

I have also decided to stop reading out of obligation. I don't need to be a completist. I may ditch a series if I'm not enjoying it! I may, I may! This should free me up for more new authors and that's a good thing, and also, reading what you enjoy is a good thing, too. Hm. I'm learning! I'm 36 and I am finally figuring things out!

What else, what else? Oh, a music diet. I have Enough Music for now, I really do.

And no new paper products until I run out. No index cards, no notebooks. Sweartagod.

Also: a week from tomorrow, my book will be OUT.

Realizing I don't have to finish books has saved me a lot of time. Having just set one aside today, I'll have to find something I won't mind having interrupted when yours arrives next week.

Well, mine CAN go on the stack. Especially since you've read it in some form before...

Ha. I'm too curious to see what's different, for one thing.
