My biggest vice


Buying books has always been one of my biggest vices and I am ashamed to admit sometimes I just buy them and stick them unread on the self! Bad Gareth. I’m see the next six months as an opportunity to read all the books I have left unloved on my bookshelf.

I have just sorted them out and there are 21 of them and there is a pretty good mix - from ‘Microtrends’ by Mark Penn to ‘Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs’ by Chuck Klosterman.

There is easily six months worth (I’m a slow reader) and if I can just avoid going into Boarders then I’m sure I can tame my book buying habit which is a great thing as NY living is not great for book lovers – the flats … sorry apartments are too small!
