Time for the weekly meme: Crazy-for-Books.com‘s Book Blogger Hop. I can’t seem to help myself; I discover interesting blogs each week I participate.
For this weekend’s Hop, the question is: How many books do you have on your ‘to be read shelf’?
My answer: One shelf? I’m not that organized. I currently have 30+ books in stacks that I am, theoretically, going to get to before I move on to the unread books already shelved. I have the bad habit of picking up interesting-looking books–fiction & non-fiction–from thrift stores and yard sales and then somehow not reading them. They’re nicely filed away on the bookshelves, so I don’t know off hand how many there are, but as a guess, there’s at least a hundred such books. Hardcovers for a dollar and paperbacks for fifty cents. That’s hard for me to resist!
…I think I ought to just donate the ones in good shape the library system. Maybe they’d lead fulfilling lives there, rather than being lonely and unread at my house. Hmmm.
ETA: These are the physical books in my TBR pile. If I were to count my wishlist, that bumps the number of books I want to read to over a thousand, that I know of – my wishlist grows daily. Eep.
