I'm sorry you're in denial. You're supposed to reveal EVERYTHING at groups like this. If you hold back then you can't possibly expect to be cured.

I am now totally reformed, a week since I purchased and nearly 48 hours since I downloaded a free book. So this is my last meeting, I don't need you guys any more.

I think it means that instead of the plain white color of the paper the book has color added to the edge of the pages so it's blue or gold etc. rather than plain white.
weird...but otherwise the condition said "very good". think that's fine? the book is a bit costly, but that's only because it's out of print a long time ago D:

I think that dyed edges is a superior sort of book, especially if it is gold. Maybe a special edition or something. Not that there is something wrong with it.

But if it's just an interesting sounding book at a reasonable price that's going to end up on your TBR pile for months or years, it's an addicition purchase. Much better to add it to a wish list. Wait for it to be in a sale or to otherwise be at a bargain price, rather than just a reasonable price.
Usually I use my wish list and that list is very extensive. However, I thought $5.70 was a very good price for a Man Booker winner. But I think I succumbed to the suspicion that it wasn't going to be that price for long - that it was a special.

I probably just should have added it to my wish list anyway and if the price rose to $8 or $9 - oh well.

it's got great reviews on both GR and Amazon, so I'm a little bit excited

Hmm...I just wonder why it is that I never noticed that one of the used books I bought was listed only as "acceptable" until the seller confirmed the order. Weird...

There isn't much hope left for you poohbear I'm afraid. You may need to check in to a residential centre and hand in your ereader at the door.
My ereader will have to be pried out of my cold dead rotting hand! Otherwise it's going with me wherever I go!

Don't worry Poppaea ..... just sneak up on that little annoying kiwi (she'll never hear a leopard coming! ) and push that little beak into the ground! Then listen to the squawking!

The noise will cover up the click when we buy another ebook!

The highlighted portion is the main reason I have 180 bought (not free) books that are still unread ... most were in my wishlist and at some point the price was right and I bought before they went back to full price. But I will read them all some day, surely ... ok maybe

Last week was a full year since I got my first Kindle and during that time I've bought 349 books and read 169 ... that's a good ratio, right?

And let's not even talk about the free books

i'm picky on the free books, too. i'm glad i prefer m/m pairings when it comes to romance. it cuts down on ebooks that i feel i "should" get
