An idea I got from The Toddled Dredge (via K for Kat). Here’s what she said:
“So here today I present to you an Unread Books Challenge. Give me the list or take a picture of all the books you have stacked on your bedside table, hidden under the bed or standing in your shelf – the books you have not read, but keep meaning to. The books that begin to weigh on your mind. The books that make you cover your ears in conversation and say, ‘No! Don’t give me another book to read! I can’t finish the ones I have!’ “
Here is my bookshelf.
As you can see there are 2 shelves. I categorize my books into read and unread because that’s all the space I have to segregate books. The lower shelf is the “unread” one. It’s has 3 rows of books, 2 of which you cannot see from the picture as they are stacked behind. If I had to guess how many books are in my Unread pile, it would be more than 100.
There are books which I desperately want to read. Here are some of them
The Handmaid’s tale
Where the heart is
River, cross my heart
Anne of Green Gables (2)Little Women
Autobiography of a monk
100 days in Baghdad
The Thirteenth Tale
Their Eyes were Watching God and so on and so forth.
In spite of all this, I would never say “Don’t give me another book to read”, no matter how many books I have 🙂 Though I think I should.
What about you?
