    I think I have a problem! LOL! I love research and learning more about the field. I just went through my kindle book orders and in the past 2.5 years I have spent almost $600 on books just related to ECE! Now, most of this was gift cards or bonuses that I received from some surveys, but still... Geez LOL! Plus I have purchased a few actual hard copy books. So, anyone else have this problem/addiction? I always see more I want to read/learn/know and they are never available through my local library. Am I alone? ;)

    If you can afford it, that's a good problem to have! It's always good to research/learn more about the field. I like to read up about ECE stuff as well, but only if it's free so it's usually just articles online :)

    In the past, I have spent a lot! These days, I spend more time looking at ideas online. ;)

    It is a good problem, but I definitely have to remind myself to not overdo it. I try to get my "fix" from online information now, as well as what I already have. But I do still tend to buy a couple a month. I did rejoin NAEYC as a comprehensive member so I get the 6 books they send, the Teaching Young Children magazine, as well as online access to Young Children magazine. So for about $10 a month I get all of that.. It helps, and I know that I am getting great info. I will be starting a Master os Teaching program next year, so I am looking forward to the textbooks! ;)

    I have a thing for real books, that I can read, make notes on the pages and re-reading it later on too. I do often buy them cheaper used from amazon.

    You can probably deduct on taxes.
