One of the problems with being flat-out busy for the last three months or so, is that I haven’t done much reading. And one of the ‘problems’ about spending time on reading blogs and communities is that you hear about so many good books – books that are easy to either buy online, or pick up in the local bookshop. And one of the ‘problems’ of going to conferences is that you get free books.
This is the result – my TBR piles and shelves:
What you can’t see, in those photos, is the pile of books behind the pile on shelf 2. Or the five or so books sent home from ARRC last month that are still in my car. And we won’t talk about the box of old Mills and Boons (acquired for thesis research) that have been in the boot of my car for months, or the stacks of them behind the stacks of read books on the bookshelves.
Now, I know I’m not as
bad addicted dedicated to reading and books as some people. However, I did a count last night, and there’s about 105 books (not counting the M&Bs) that are waiting to be read.
I’m definitely going to have to make time to curl up and read some more 🙂 Oh, and maybe not buy
any many books for a while!
