    I realized lately that over the years I had bought too many books and had spent too little time reading the good book. So in recent days I decided to SAVE MONEY and not buy anymore books.

    Any of you also have or had the book obsession that I once had? The problem was that I got hundreds of books that I never read so why continue to buy books? Granted some books such as The Way of the Master, and The Gospel According to Jesus are invaluable, but most books are not and can be a waste of time.

    I do not mean this to be insulting, but have you talked to your doctor about this?

    It is only saving money if you are not spending that money on something else and are putting it towards your debt and emergency fund.

    I would look through your books and see which ones you really don't need and try to sell them. You can make some extra money this way.
