Right now, I have a problem. I am currently studying History and Archaeology at university, a degree that requires reading. Sometimes this reading is interesting and sometimes it makes me question several of my life choices. Either way I have a lot of it to do, and this means I do not have much time to read for pleasure. Of course I do have other time at university but I choose to use that watching a film or youtube, or to socialise. I really do want to read however, and I see so many books that look too inviting to simply walk away from and thus I buy them anyway.

And this is where my problem arises. I am addicted to buying books that I know I have no time to read. The picture below is the current pile of books I have (I am half way through the top one), baring in mind at the beginning of 2016 I had no books left outstanding…DSCF1089

The most annoying part of this problem is I know I could easily make time for reading and that my mind would thank me for it. Every night I lie in bed on my phone until my eyelids begin to shut by themselves and then finally I turn it off and sleep. I know how unhealthy this is and yet I continue to do it. If I turned my phone off an hour before bed and read for 45 minutes instead, I would fall asleep in a far more peaceful way.

This entire issue is of course all my own fault. Whether its because I’m too lazy to change my habits or I do not want to miss out on anything via social media, it is all my own doing. My laziness certainly impacts my actions far too much in my life but that’s a whole other blog post…

The point is I either have to make room for reading or stop buying so many bloody books! If anybody else has ever had this issue please tell me how to solve it because otherwise I do not see it stopping.
