I love the image (above), which makes me think of my unread books…but most of mine are on Pippa, my Kindle, so they hide…successfully.
On my Curl up and Read blog, I track the books I have purchased (usually for Kindle), and link to them when they are read…or cross them out when I have decided I can’t finish them.
Here is an update of books unread from 2014:
153 books purchased; 29 books unread (not including those I marked DNF)
95 books purchased; 25 books unread (not including DNF).
Because I am participating in the Read the Books You Buy Challenge, I am whittling away at the unread books, even though, for the challenge, only those purchased from June 2015 through the end of 2016 count. I have read and reviewed 21 books so far.
In 2016, I have purchased 18 books so far, and read 7 of those (also included in the total for the challenge).
What do all of these numbers mean? Well, I need to make a better effort to read as I go, don’t you think? Don’t let the books pile up or hide…and read more of them overall.
The constant work-in-progress, that’s the book lover’s fate.
What are your bookish goals? What keeps you reading, despite the odds?
