Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Bookish Things I Want to Quit Or Have Quit


Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme feature created at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists. For the list of past topics and future schedule, click here.


Ten Bookish Things I Want to Quit Or Have Quit

  1. I have quit buying books for my classroom library. An entire shelf of books did not make their way back last year. I have spent almost $1,000 on books, including dropping $500 my first year at to support our school’s book fair. I am done buying books to be stolen.
  2. I need to quit putting off finishing A Fiery Cross (and Gone With the Wind). I have been “reading” these two since I was still in college, about halfway through.
  3. I also need to quit putting off reading my physical books. I need to make that TBR jar.
  4. I have quit lending my books to people. I don’t care if it makes me look mean. I’m tired of not getting them back.
  5. I need to quit going on downloading sprees for e-books, whether it’s the Amazon freebies or NetGalley. NetGalley is my nemesis.
  6. I have quit reading dystopian YA…and I don’t think I’m going back.
  7. I need to quit lusting after covers. Cover love gets the best of me.
  8. I have quit having anxiety over DNFing a book. I’m not saying I’m a DNFing fool, but I have definitely stepped up this year and told myself to move on.
  9. I think I have abandoned ever finishing the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I don’t even know how many more books have been published since I stopped buying them.
  10. I have quit procrastinating when I’m not feeling like working on the blog. I try to do at least one or two productive things.

  1. Ahhh, #5. Me too! I have gotten so many Amazon freebies that it’s insane. And NetGalley! I just started with them at the end of July, and now, I’m so far behind! I only got approved for 3 or 4 on my first spree. Went on a second one, didn’t hear anything back for a long time. Went on a third spree, got approved for 2. Then all of a sudden, I had 15 books on my shelf. At once! Plus the others I had already been approved for but hadn’t gotten to yet. I have 6 being published this month and I haven’t gotten to any of them yet!

    I need to quit this. 😉
