Hey guys! It’s Yasmin.
Usually, I’m not a very pessimistic person. I’d prefer to see the glass half full rather than half empty. But that said, I mean usually.
I love being part of such an amazing bookish community. I’ve made tons of awesome friends, like Paige, and I’ve been able to express my inner fangirl. I love watching BookTube, reviewing books, sharing opinions, hearing other people’s opinions, blogging, and all the other perks that this community has. However, I can’t help but noticing one thing that bothers me so much. And that is, the expectation that you have to buy your books.
I would love to say that I don’t feel pressured to start buying more books. But then I’d be lying. I just feel since everyone else buys their books, that I should too. Because hauling a library book isn’t “cool”. And the truth is, before I joined this community, I could care less about whether I read library books or books I physically bought.
Please don’t take this as I think you’re a bad person if you buy your books. It’s totally up to you what you spend your money on.
Am I the only one who notices this? Who feels this way? Please leave your thoughts in the comments so we can discuss!
Happy reading 🙂
