Book Blogger New Year's Challenge of 2014 - How Many Books Are On Your To-Be-Read Shelf?
How Many Books Are On Your To-Be-Read Shelf?
The answer to this question depends to a certain extent on what you count as a to-be-read shelf. If you just count the review copies that I have, then I have thirty-six books on my to-be-read shelf. If you count the books that I have sitting in the numerous stacks that I have put the books that I'd like to get to "soon", the number increases by an addition three hundred and twelve books. And then if one counts all of the books that I have in my house that I have not read yet, the total number rises to six thousand one hundred and fifty-three.
If I apply myself, I can probably get through the review copies by the end of March or April. I might be able to get through the "soon" pile in the next two years or so. But the pile of unread books is likely to occupy me for the rest of my life. The entire publishing industry could vanish tomorrow and I'll have enough reading material for the next fifty plus years. I don't think publishers will stop publishing books though, so I suppose I'll be running the Red Queen's race for quite a while.
