All I can say is that there are 4 hours before bed and I haven't bought a book or audiobook yet in October.

There’s a lot of ebooks I want, but I haven’t bought any for a couple months. So I’m doing pretty good,

Augh! Now I find that one publisher has set lots and lots of Mystery/Crime books at £0.84 in the UK Kindle store. Including books by Jonathan Gash (Lovejoy novels) and Elizabeth Peters (Amelia Peabody novels). I'm doomed!
Over five years on, I can say that these were a good buy after all. I'm just finishing up the Amelia Peabody series, and they have been excellent.

So sometimes excellent bargains really are excellent bargains.

But I'm still trying to keep my buying under control. None bought so far this month!

And I realise I missed a great opportunity back in 2014. Let me make up for it now.

I can’t possibly read or listen to all the books I have accumulated. I keep telling myself that I have more than enough for now. And yet, there’s always something new and intriguing that I just must have.

My self talk is "when you've read the books you've already bought, there be more JUST LIKE this one that you are seeing an ad for right now".

Or

"by the time you get around to reading it, there will be more in the series already written, or the series might even be finished".

Such self talk is only marginally helpful to keep my from purchasing

So far this year, I'm slowing down my purchases. For September, I purchased 66 ebooks with another 7 so far in October though 4 of those were from the Baen Monthly bundle and one won't arrive until March, 2020 (The Pursuit of the Pankera by RAH). At this time, I don't have a TBR pile and many of my purchases are also helping to whittle down my pbook collection.

Dang it. These $1 “entire box sets” keep getting me. I’ll never get around to reading them.
