1. LOL! Is there a word for the perpetrator of such acts?

Because I might have to use it!

5. I have a kindle, but I made a rule for myself.

Physical book, then kindle book, physical book, then kindle book, etc.

8. I thought I was the only one who did that!

I have about 2,000 non-physical books...Nook, and pdf type.Half on the puter, half on discs.Includes some audio books.
Plus 400 physical books.
And am still collecting more.

I am in denial that they will not all get read in this lifetime.

9. I have over a thousand physical books...

And a library that's practically next to me that's so nice that people from other towns go to it... But I've only downloaded about 13 books onto my kindle... I'm going to read the classics on my kindle mostly. Keep it for fiction since just about all of my physical books are non-fiction. And reading Ulysses on a kindle makes more sense because of the dictionary ability it has. When you touch the word, it shows what it means. I wish all books did that...

I've been very good to not buy physical books. Except when we went to the used bookstore on Mother's Day. You're just asking for me to buy then...

4. Another word: TsundokayImokay

(n) buying self-help books and not reading them, in the probably vain hope that the book contents will magically transport themselves into one's brain, with the result of waking up perfectly okay, politically correct, non-weird, non-codependent and generally peachy.

This word describes me in a nutshell.

7. Is it necessary to place them under your pillow, or

does this phenomenon work from anywhere within one's abode?

11. Well to be honest, none of it has improved me so far

I am forced to conclude that either my method is flawed, or the self-help books are themselves useless.

Using a bookstore as one's personal library to keep from having books cluttering up one's dwelling
