This is my To Be Read pile. Well, it’s more like a whole bookcase. I have over 100 (not much over) books in there. Excessive? I suppose. But this is probably 8 years or more worth of books that I haven’t quite gotten to yet. Some have been loaned to me, but mostly I’ve bought them. It’s like having my own personal library. When I want to start a new book, I have so many to choose from! I have mystery, fantasy, literature, fluff, historical, non-fiction…most everything except for romance. Romance is a little too fluffy.
I know I could check books out from the library, but can you imagine my late charges on all of these books? 🙂 I know that I wouldn’t check out all these books, but oftentimes I have every intention of starting a book…only to see a book that I want to read more.
I’m sure some readers are going to try not to buy so many books. In fact, when I told a friend about my To Be Read pile, she said, “Are you done?” Umm, no. There’s always more books I want to read!! Actually her comment made me consciously go to the bookstore to use the gift certificates I got for Christmas. Of course, I planned out the books based on reviews from other readers. For example, I bought Moloka’i (notice the book has a five out of five review on Amazon…amazing!) and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. I definitely don’t pick books willy-nilly.
What’s your To Be Read pile like?
