I got into the habit of trading books at secondhand bookstores years ago. You get 25% of what you paid and it adds up and enables me to get more books.

I tend to buy every book written about a subject I'm interested in and then I weed out the ones I'm not that interested in.

Since I post-it-tape my books, a book without colored tapes sticking up looks ready for the bookstore.

I'm trying to control my bookaholism by having my library get books for me from other branches and by trading books I don't want and by not going into bookstores.

Perhaps, Gwen, we could start a chapter of Bookaholics Anonymous.

Thanks for your reply,

sandra ;-)
