For my fiftieth birthday a couple of months ago I was given two book tokens, which I have now spent. These new books, combined with purchases from Barter Books (read about it here) now means that the pile of books beside by bedside has become ridiculous, much worse than it was a year ago (read about it here). Not only that, but the pile of books that I’ve read and haven’t blogged about is also ridiculous.
I’m going to implement a rule, I’m not allowed to start a new book until I have reviewed the one I’ve just finished, and one other from the pile next to the fruit bowl. That way, in a few months I should be caught up. Additionally, no new books this year (caveat; unless one catches my eye and I can’t possibly manage without it).
How many books do you have waiting to be read?
