Hm, this one is tricky. I vowed to myself not to buy any ebooks for money until 7/1. I did some beta reading for a self-pubbed author and she gave me a gift card so I can buy her book and also some others as a sort of quid pro quo. Would it be evil of me to buy some books now including hers or should I wait until 7/1? TRICKY!

I'm still going strong. 35 days and counting. The most amazing thing happened though, since I stopped buying books I've won a couple of competitions with book giveaways and a publisher started sending me review copies.

I guess that's the universe's way of ensuring that I keep getting books!

The gods want you to have books! The universe is going out of its way, reversing entropy and violating several laws of thermodynamics, to send books your way! How can you fight it? You're meant to continue acquiring books! Become one with the universe and buy those books!

Not falling for that one. Now I might just mess up this excellent karma thing I've got going if I actually DO buy something. Extra incentive not to, and see how long it lasts.

Okay, I have been lurking on this thread. The reason is that I quit smoking 3 years ago, and recently I have been having that "itch" that I used to get when cigs weren't within my reach. Okay, what is this?? Then I sat at the computer one day and started checking out the free and under 5.00 books and bought one,then two, then exhaled .... OMG that is soooo satisfying!! So, no crack cocaine for me, no more cigarettes, as long as there are books to buy my fix is right here.
Thanks for letting me get it all out!!

Dear Brat,

I am so glad for your company here on the thread as I am in dire need of a friend. I bought two ebooks ($2.99 and $4.58) today and f**ed up my stats. It is now 45 ebooks bought till August 2010 and only 25 of those read.

I fight to read some more until Friday but defeat is near in the release of two books of series I have been following.

Do I have to expose myself to sun now, to erease my worthless Batcarcass from the face of the earth?


Bette the Bat (Friend of Lucifer's Brat)
Dear Bat,

As always, I am here for you. You may take comfort in the fact that I, myself, will be falling off the wagon any day now. I'm reading Hounded, the first book in the Iron Druid Chronicles. I assure you that upon finishing it, I will be purchasing the next book.

Please don't throw yourself on the mercy of the blazing sun. I need you. We need each other if we are to succeed. What say we merely walk behind the wagon for a while until we feel like getting back on? That's not so bad, right?

Cheer up, friend. It will be okay.

Your infernal friend,
Le Brat (friend of Lucifer's Bat)

Welcome to the group AND for inspiring this week's book buying motto:

EBOOKS! CHEAPER THAN COCAINE!

It means having to shift back and forth multiple times when doing it correctly is very easy to read.

Your top post gets read sort of until the reader sees the quote. Then they have to shift to read the quote and then shift back to read your post. So that means a lot of needless eye shifting going on. That is not good for some who have reading trouble.

For shame. Using twisted logic to justify not having bought eBooks when for sure you really did.

The one good thing about buying eBooks is they don't give you the munchies.
