How many unread books do you have in your house, right now? (Your own books, that is--not ones that belong to other family members--and not counting things like school books, if you have them.) Clearly, an estimate will do.
Hundreds. Boxes of them. No idea how many hundreds.To the best of your recollection, what is the OLDEST unread book in your collection? How long has it been waiting?
At least 150 years old. I have antique bibles and antique mathematics books.Do your TBR books (that's "To Be Read," if you didn't know) haunt you, make you feel guilty that you haven't read them yet?
Those books used to make me feel guilty; but I am older now and know how impossible it will be to read all there is to read. Now I can relax and enjoy!
