Do we have a "shake my head" smiley? Sometimes the eyeroll isn't enough.

For something ON topic - I almost purchased a minute ago, but I walked away from it. I just might be able to beat this problem after all.

Iz confession tiem nao? <-- pretend this is a LOLcat, since we don't seem to have one

It has been two days since I purchased exactly 10 e-books and in the intervening time I have finished reading 2 and 1/3rd books* out of my paid purchases and expect to finish the remaining 2/3rds of an e-book today.

However, if there's a good discount coupon this weekend and the pricematching on some of the sale stuff lasts long enough, I fully intend to spend.

* Not necessarily the same ones as I'd purchased that day, mind you, although as it turns out, one of them was.

Spending might not buy eternal happyness but it DOES make me feel good (for a split second that is)
I feel your pain, errrr, joy! I too bought another ebook today - one of the agency 2.99 deals. And .... [brb] there's a new post in Freebies & Deals!

Thought we'd laid this to rest the last time you went off... if you don't like it then don't read it... I have no intention of changing my posts to suit you as I made clear the last time you started this totally pointless nitpicking...

I can't say no to any Fictionwise coupon 40% or higher. I can't say no to my favorite authors. I can't say no to any even slightly enticing freebie. AllRomance eBucks rebates, Books on Board rewards, I'm too weak to fight them.

It's been two days since I last purchased. My hope is to make it a week. I don't count the freebies, even though, deep down, I know they are a part of my problem.
OMG! I read your post and thought to myself "hmm I have to buy my free ebook from AllRomance by tomorrow and the SBT Bookclub book before I lose the discounts."

I've gotten to the point where I refuse to count my TBR pile. I read the DearAuthor.com blogs everyday and thing too. myself of I have to have that book too (even though I bought 4 yesterday). Then my local library had me sign up for for chapter-a-day with Suzanne Beecher so each week I think I need that book too.

It's getting so bad I've discovered I bought some of the same books from Sony store and BooksonBoard.

Perhaps if you told us how it happened, we could give advice on how to avoid that situation in future.
Nah, it was five hours at the time and now it's been 18 hrs. But I bought 3 books so they will last until Monday. And then it will be a new game

I hate to say this, but I am with Jon. I often start reading your post, then I realize you say something referring to another post, then I have to scroll down, read the quote, scroll up again read your post and when I am finished I am quite pi**ed. Why do you make it hard for me to grasp what you're aiming at? Sometimes I am too lazy to go through this and just skip reading your post. And all because you want to do things different? Nah, you can do better!

Forgot to say: I am equally pi**ed by Jon's refusal of multi-quotes.

Maybe I am just being difficult

I'm very pleased to announce that it's been 25 days since I last bought a book. I was sorely tempted by various sales, but rather than buying I added the books to my wishlist.

Congratulatins. Yes, that's my approach too. A book comes to my atttention that sounds like something I'd enjoy, it's a good price, and now I just add it to my Amazon wish list, rather than buying it.

My wish list does has nearly 50 ebooks on it now, but much better there than glaring at me from my TBR pile.

Since I still have well over 400 ebooks on my TBR pile, I really shouldn't be buying any more ebooks at the moment. Even Fictionwise's 55% off sale this weekend can't tempt me. I know that they'll have an even better sale well before I run out of books to read.

Now 12 days since I last bought an ebook!

I am bored. Can't I have a tiny $0.99 book, please? I need a fix.

Congratulations.

No, you can't. Go and read one of the books you've already bought! Add it to a wishlist instead.
