Booking Through Thursday



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!

  1. I must have about a gazillion unread books in my house, along with about that many again waiting to be re-read (I love reading books more than once!). I am a book-hoarder !!
    Have a great weekend.
    Take care, Meow

  2. I just did my BTT too. I'm glad there are other hoarders out there.

  3. Glad to hear someone has more TBR books than I do! Yay!

    When it asked what is the OLDEST unread book in your collection?, my interpretation was, how long ago did you purchase the book? So JUST IMAGINE my surprise when you responded "at least 150 years old." Wow! ;)
