Why do I keep buying books?

It's not as though i didn't already have a stack of books next to my bed, waiting to be read.

On Saturday I decided to go to Buecher Brocky to try and find some more Douglas Adams books to release during the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Movie this coming Thursday. Just one or two books I thought...

I did find 2 books, but also managed to 4 others and a CD! Then to compound matters I went to Orell Fuessli, the english bookshop in Zurich, to see if they had the film tie-in version in English. They didn't, but that didn't stop me buying 3 other unrelated books, two of which have now turned into Bookrings (Nothing bad ever happens at Tiffany's: Marian Keyes & The State of Poetry: Roger McGough :-)

Finally, today I felt the need to buy 8 books off a member of the Zurich Expats Yahoo Group... WHEN WILL THIS MADNESS STOP?!
