So, I broke my book buying
I have an excuse, of course.
Let us pretend you have not seen my twitter for a while and thus know nothing about my previous breaking of the ban. That would be too embarrassing, right? My boyfriend took me to this book fair called “boekenfestijn” (book fest) near where I live. I had heard about the awesomeness of this fair before, Bina told me I should definitely visit it if I had the chance. However, I somehow did not expect there to be SO MANY English books for prizes ranging from 0,80 to 3 euro’s. But there were. Books that had been on my wish list for a while & books I never knew I wanted but had to buy anyway & books I wanted to try for that amount of money even if I should know better (Sophie Dahl).
So really, the situation was quite outside of my control. Another excuse: one or two of these may end up as gifts.
I am in desperate need of another ban. A ban that I hope won’t present itself out of necessity (ie. I probably won’t have any money to spend in a month or so from now). Also, I have enough books to last me 2 years, I think. Thing is, I am hesitant to announce another ban on my blog, seeing as failure is so humiliating.
