22225 I hide my purchases from my mother. I always get international packages because i love buying books online. I lie to my mother that I get them for free from authors who want my reviews. It is partially true since I get books to review from authors and also some authors would just give them to me as gifts. But sometimes, I would order books online since all my money is in Paypal.

22225 I don't organize. I have more than 500 printed books and they are everywhere in the house. I even sleep with 5 to 10 books beside me sometimes on the bed and my shelf is bursting with books. After the first layer, there would be another layer of books in front of it or piled up on each other. I really have to start learning how to organize because whenever I feel like reading a particular book, I literally "unearth" tons of books before I can find what I am looking for. I seriously have to save so I can buy another life-size shelf.

22225 One of my many freelance jobs is being a professional paid book reviewer so I definitely read books on the job all the time! =P

22225 I am also very obsessed with books. I like receiving free books from authors who want me to review them and I also actively message authors of books I want to review. Aside from that, I have tons of unread printed books all over our house. I think I have at least 500 printed books at home, and hundreds of ebooks in various formats in my emails. And I am not stopping this madness!!!!!

22225 I can buy just one because usually I do not have enough money to buy all.

I feel and do the same. as for me, I was very biased with ebooks. I thought I would hate it. but now, I am addicted to it. especially to the free books. classics usually. and I have a tablet now. I found myself devouring books so fast. besides, I find the books I am dying to read in ebook format most of the time. I feel so happy because now, I won't have to order and wait for those books in the mail.
22225 My active life and reading is balanced because my work is book related. Or at least reading related. I am a paid book reviewer, essay writer, translator, transcriptionist, essay writer, all part-time. So that is why reading is very important to me.

I feel the same with God of small things

Also The Name of the Rose and House of Leaves.
