A Book and Magazine Diet



When I was in Portland on Saturday, I stopped in a lovely little shop in Sellwood. I am sorry that I didn't get the name, however it is right between 2 of the Stars Antique Shops. I saw this new book, and of course...I had to take a peek. It looks like an interesting read. I, however...am on a book and magazine diet. This means that I am not purchasing these things for a long period of time...at least 6 to 12 months. A difficult challenge indeed! I am determined to stop the impulse purchases, there is really nothing new in them. Now that I have admitted this problem to you...I am more committed than ever. I don't even take a look at magazine racks.  How about you?

  1. I get you completely... I have started a magazine diet too, I am such an addict. I realized, finally, that they are all publishing pretty much the same re-hashed stuff over and over. Sometimes, not even new pictures. Am winnowing all my subscriptions down, too... and not buying on the newstand. It's hard!!!

  3. This is very hard to do. I have decided in about everything that it has to come down to Want vs Need.
    I argue myself pretty strongly on which is which sometimes but I think as long as it's forward motion it's all good!
