I have a plan when it comes to books.
Stop looking so worried. It’s a good plan. Honest.
I’ve got a ton of unread books at home on my To Read pile. I’ve got a similar number of unread books on my Kindle. I’m a sucker for a 3 for 2 offer, or a ‘buy one get one half price’, or a 99p kindle ebook deal, see?
So, I’m going to make a list. A list of all the unread books in my house.
Then I’m going to read them.
See? I told you it was a good plan.
I’m also going to be a bit ruthless about this – if there’s a book I’ve not read but, on reflection, am unlikely to read given the state of The Great Unread Book Mountain, I’m going to get rid of it. Charity shops will do well out of me.
I may pass some books along too. Books which I’ve read and enjoyed, but am unlikely to read again.
The second part of my cunning plan is to start reading more books which other people have recommended, but which I wouldn’t ordinarily have picked up. I’ve started a ‘to read’ list on Goodreads. I’m dakegra over there (surprisingly), feel free to add me to your list, and recommend me a book.
If you’re not on Goodreads, then feel free to recommend a book that you’ve particularly enjoyed recently. I’ll read as many as I can and review them here.
Also, if anyone wants to send me a book to review, just drop me an email. dakegra [at] gmail [dot] com. I like emails.
the word ‘pile’ may be slightly misleading.
ok, ok, it’s not an actual mountain. It is very big though
