Let me start at the beginning though. As most of you know by now, I'm on a book buying ban since January. Still going strong, and apart from a brief moment of breaking out in hysterical sobs when walking by a bookshop back in April, I've been a good girl and did not buy any books. A glance at the towering stacks of books still waiting to be read usually helps with that.
Now, you might think that my wishlist has exponentially grown as I never relieve it of at least a few books every now and then by clicking the BUY button. Wrong. For some very strange reason my interest in new books has ebbed in the past months and I only put a selected few books by favorite authors onto my wishlist. Luckily most will become available right around the time my book buying ban ends. Though, let's not digress.

Initially I thought my wishlist would literally go through the roof. Strangly, it didn't. When I won a book of choice in a giveaway not long ago I actually had to think long and hard which one I wanted. I went through my wishlist and ... wait for it ... ended up deleting copious amounts of books that I put on it over the course of a year or so. Granted, my wishlist has never been all that long in the first place, maybe 50 books or so (let's just assume this IS a short wishlist, because I know people who have 500 books on their wishlist ... not naming any names *cough*) and when I was done, there were roughly 25 books left on it. Not to say that's a bad thing. Definitely puts less pressure on the whole ban. Yet the interesting thing would be how I once really wanted to get my hands on certain books and now I'm just no longer interested. This puts a whole new meaning to thinking-before-buying.
How about your wishlist? Are you more a huge-TBR-pile person or a wishlist-hoarder? Maybe both? Comment away!
