I'm in that all the time lately.

I've actually found that "lite" literature does the trick to jog me out of it. Maybe try something fluffy and easy to zip though? Makes you feel like you're making all kinds of progress.

@amara: right now i'm trying to finish a little spy book. it's lite, alright, but i've read better ;x sometimes i get annoyed when authors just put jobs for the sake of having them but not really showing their characters doing them.

I'll see your lite spy novel and raise you a lite Bridget Jones knock-off. I usually can't stand chick lit, but this caught my eye with a funny description. It's cute, fluffy, and mediocre, but in an enjoyable way. I'll never understand how characters in books can be in constant poverty (behind on the rent, no food in the fridge) but still manage to go out for drinks when they've had a long day.

i used to enjoy chick lit. i suppose i still do, but most of the time i want to strangle the heroine, especially if she seems so vapid and oblivious. before i got into online reading and original fiction, i used to read a lot of chick lit on my sisters' shelves. but nowadays when it comes to women's fiction, i enjoy food-related novels and books on friendship i did enjoy Bridget Jones, though she was cute without being annoying. for me, at least xP

ok, finished the spy novel.

in progress: an m/m novel, a mystery, and two vampire books

@WyndSlash,

Yes, I want to throttle them too, I'm afraid. I particularly find the weight-emphasis obnoxious -- the whole meme in chick lit that 5'5", 12X pounds is "chubby" or "fat" is quite tiresome to me.

And I also don't like the consumer culture of a lot of chick lit and "Sex in the City" -- I don't want to be all PEOPLE ARE STARVING when someone buys a $500 pair of sunglasses because have I mentioned I have four eReaders for no adequate reason, but still, my gorge rises a little when the novels delve into brand name dropping.

I LOVE food related novels. Can we just keep this addiction thread going forever? Because this is awesome.

who buys a pair of $500 sunglasses? imagine how many pbooks/ebooks you could buy with that!

I vote yes.

And no, this question does not need a poll.

I just purchased. Only 99 cents, but still... You can only fall off the wagon so many times before it just makes sense to stay in the road.

I put myself on a book buying ban until at least the end of the summer, but I've bought five books this week. At least I only spent $3 buying them!

I have a REALLY hard time resisting cheap books, and free books are worse. I'm not counting the freebies for my ban, though, so that part's fine.

many of the books i want aren't available in ebook format yet, so i guess that's one more thing that's stopping me but it will only be a matter of time, then i suspect the authors would digitize their works.

Reminds me of a former neighbor. He fell behind on rent and had other such problems, but he could find funds for lottery tickets.

This is the tactic I've been taking too. And then Fictionwise did do a 60% off coupon. I was doing really well this year up until then!
