When too much is too much

You might think this is going to be an important post, something touching hot topics in the news. Well, you can read something else, if this is what you expect to see here today 🙂

This is one of my self-discipline posts. When I have to force myself to do something, I feel it’s easier if I commit publicly. This helps me picture the goal in my mind, and it gives me something to look back at, in case my self-discipline is not working.

Today, I need to set a goal concerning my comic book purchase habits. I have recently checked, and I have tons of unread volumes and comic books in my house. This is usually not enough to make me stop buying new comics. Having said this, I don’t want to become a hoarder and I want to enjoy reading my comics, not just collecting them.

This is why, starting today, I announce that I will not purchase any new comic book, either single issue, volume or digital, until I finish reading all my unread comics. This includes books loaned at the library. This does not mean that I need to read all of my comics. It is OK to purge the comics I don’t like, but I have to get rid of them. The only exception to this commitment is for the Italian comic books that http://fumetto-online.it sends me once in a while and for the Comic Bento subscription I recently started.

I’ll update this post regularly to keep track of the commitment.
