What My Book Piles Say About Me


Wallace Yovetich over at BookRiot has written an article telling book hoard.....ER, collectors, yes (!) collectors what our piles of books say about us.  Here's the one that seems to fit me best....Although I can proudly say that I don't have more unread books than those that I have read.....Yet.


Poor dear. You are the one that had the BEST of intentions. You began your stacks with the belief that you would actually read the books you placed there. You had no idea, when you started this, that you would have so little will power when it came to bookstores and libraries. Soon the lust for books overcame you, you greedy little thing, you, and the stacks grew taller and wider. You now have more unread books than read books… welcome to the club.

I've been on a purging kick and have gotten rid of about 50 books that I have not read, but no long feel like I will want to read them either.
