Anyone have this problem?

Whenever I go back to the library to drop off the books I've read, I can't resist picking up a few more.

Whenever I have books unread from the library, I read them first to avoid being late returning them.

Result:

Every time I actually buy books for myself, I never get around to reading them thanks to having so many library books to get through!

I have had a stack of books I bought around two months back that I haven't touched yet.

BTDT..lol. I try to just drop off books at the drop off outside so that I won't be tempted to pick up so many books. It is kind of hard though since we usually go to the library at least twice a week and I have 7 libraries within a 10-15 min drive max I can't tell you how many times I have dropped off books into the wrong libraries drop box though

where's the problem? some of life's more comforting feelings;
positive bank balance

full tank of gas
good supply of feed for the livestock
a stack of books to read!

I find myself in the same predicament over eBooks I borrow from my local library. When you download them, they are good for 21 days after which they disappear off your reader. So, I'll be halfway though a regular eBook when I notice one I want is available on teh Library Web site and I can't resist grabbing it. But then I have to get right into it because that damn 21 day clock is ticking.
