I was chatting to a friend last night about my current obsessions – New Girl (it was love at first sight when Jess made a LOTR reference in the first episode) and Game of Thrones. We were discussing how awesome they are because no matter how many episodes we watch we are always desperate for the next one, especially Game of Thrones it’s been so intense this season! Of course, this left to me pondering about buying the Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire books again. I have wanted to read them since the series began and I am a big fantasy fan so they have been difficult to resist. I mentioned this to my friend and the result was some texting with heavy use of Caps Lock, you have been warned. 😉
Me: I REALLLY want the Game of Thrones books.
Friend: NO YOU DON’T, YOU HAVE TOO MANY BOOKS ALREADY.
Me: BUT I WANTS THEM. I WANT THEM SO BAD.
Friend: BE STRONG.
Me: WHYYYY!? WHAT IF I JUST READ SOME OF MY BOOKS REALLY QUICKLY?
Friend: YOU HAVE TOO MANY BOOKS.
Friend: I WILL ONLY LET YOU BUY MORE BOOKS IF YOU READ ONES THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE. THEMS THE RULES.
Me: BUT I READ BOOKS EVERY DAY, DOESN’T THAT COUNT? HOW MANY DO I HAVE TO READ BEFORE I CAN GET IT? 😦
Friend: A LOT. YOU FORGET I KNOW HOW BIG YOUR “TO READ” LIST IS. 😛
Me: Give me a number.
Friend: NO. JUST READ.
Friend: Gosh darn it. Etc. 🙂 You’ll thank me one day.
She’s right, I probably will.
Damn sane logic.
Sometimes there’s a downside to having friends that know you too well.
I’ll still get them eventually though, you know I will. 😉
Are there any books you are desperate to buy/have been desperate to buy in the past, but have held off because you know you shouldn’t? 🙂
