Ramble: One Whole Year

I had a crazy idea: Go an entire year (2014 to be specific) without purchasing a book.

And I don't mean my normal book ban, which has loopholes galore. I mean complete. No special allowances for book sales or estate sales. No use of gift cards, or even asking for books as gifts.

I know, I know. Many question my ability to do this. Experience has taught us all the prudence of questioning this. I doubt myself.

But...what if I could?

My reasoning is too complex to put to words. It has a lot to do with my belief in Christ, my wish to change my spending habits, the need to be more prudent with my finances, etc.

What about you? Could you go an entire year without buying books?

  1. oooooh....this would be very difficult but I think you could do it. I read a book a few years ago called "Not Buying it: My year without shopping" and it was really helpful regarding putting my spending into perspective.
