Stick to a budget: Understand that you’ll blow it from time to time.
Trade off your vices: Buy more books, spend less on clothes, beer, cigarettes, whatever.
Recycle: Used bookstores and thrift stores stretch your book-buying dollars.
Share: The more you share your books with others, the more room you have for more books.
Barter: Often, used bookstores let you trade in books that you’ve read or are no longer interested in, which could net you store credit or even a direct trade.
Be proud: Of all things to be addicted to, books are perhaps the most noble.
