A Book Inventory for August 26th
At the end of 2014 I went around our flat and counted all my owned but unread books that I still wanted to read. At that point I counted 155.
One of my reading goals for 2015 has been to attempt to read more of the books I actually own. But an inventory in March revealed 180 unread books.
After some concerted effort, but also some book shopping at Bookbarn International and elsewhere, would that figure be higher or lower by late August??
Well, the answer is that it’s gone up, but only slightly, to 193.
To read all the books in the flat by the end of 2016, I’d have to pretty much put an embargo on accessing any new books that come out next year (whether via NetGalley/Edelweiss or the library), except for ones I’m reviewing for pay. I don’t think I could bear the thought of missing out on many of the latest books!
How many unread books are hanging around your place? Is this a problem, or an opportunity?
