I got rid of boxes and boxes of books when we moved two years ago, so was down to a minimum of unread books - just the few that I really wanted to read. As I purchased new books, I sat them on the dresser. Soon they overtook that space and climbed the shelves along one side of the mirror. Then up the other side. I finally had to move them to the top of the dresser.
The paperbacks remain on a side shelf:
And then there's the original shelf that moved with us:
That's more than fifty "real" books acquired in the last two years, plus about 20 more on the Nook - and not read! The books purchased and actually read is a whole other thing
Once again - you all are my witnesses - no more stockpiling books. Yes, there are exceptions - there are certain authors that I really must read as soon as they're published. I'm not going cold turkey here. But I will find as many as possible at the library and I am hereby avoiding bookstores and book sites until I've read a large portion of these.
This is the part where, as you did at the end of the craft post on Tuesday, you all nod your heads and pretend to believe that will happen. Thank you.
