How to Read the Unread Books You Own

10 comments

Once upon a time, I got almost all my reading material from the library and saved my chore and holiday money to buy a few books I LOVED and would reread again and again. Ah, happy childhood. Then the internet struck, and I realized my library didn't have a lot of books I wanted to read. I was still a cheapskate, but I had jobs, and I knew how to find books cheaply, so...I became something of a collector. *cough dragon-like book hoarder cough*

Which brings us to today:


Basically, I have a ton of unread books on my shelves. This isn't all of them. They were just the easiest to group and take a picture of. It's kind of depressing. I feel really wasteful and unproductive seeing all these books I bought sitting around. They're not totally untouched; my mom routinely raids my collection and has probably read most of these, but the guilt remains.

So, I want to fix this. I'm moving in a few months and, while I'll be able to keep some books in free storage for a while, that's not permanent. In preparation for the inevitable book purge, it's time to find out what's actually worth keeping, and the only way to do that is to read them.
