The curious denial involved in book addiction

book_addict_funny_reading_gift_magnets-rfbc62b02da644f53bf83f3ca128cf0ee_x7js9_8byvr_324I will admit it. I just don’t have the discipline nor motivation to blog on a regular basis.  My life is not suited to it at the moment and I don’t have the drive or will power to overcome that. That’s reality. No matter how I wish it were otherwise.

One thing that did strike me in the week or so since I lasted posted was the curious form of denial that is involved in my book addiction.  Yes, despite not managing to produce content on this blog I continue to collect books in an alarming rate (and read them at a not too shabby pace).

The denial involves the belief that somehow buying more books than you can ever possibly read is a good use of your resources.  Or that with as many books as I currently have I should be looking for more.  Why do I continue to visit bookstores, browse Amazon and sign up for book content on social media and email? I really don’t need anymore books.  I haven’t counted but I have a great deal of books at home that I have not read (both physical and digital). Hundreds of books I would guess.
