So I came up with a reward system. Every time I read a book off my bookshelf I put £2 in a piggy bank which is my book allowance. This means that I have to read the books I already have before I can buy new ones. It encourages me to read faster if I really want to buy a book, as well. Win win.
I know some people have a set budget each month. My system does have a budget. I get some pocket money and work money each month and I can spend up to that much on books (though I will never read that much in a month!). This means I don't go dipping into my savings account.
So do you save or splurge? Or do you have a system in place to help control your addiction?
