Ever find yourself standing in front of your bookshelves or scrolling through your ereader… only to realize you haven’t read several books you were so excited to receive? I’ve been going through this often lately. I have a short list of books I need to read first (like NetGalley books, for my classics challenge, a couple recent releases for review). Yet it seems like every time I finish that list, I still end up not reading the ones I intend to read next.
It makes me wonder why this keeps happening. And if there’s any way to help taper down the to be read list. Maybe I need to have willpower… focus on a goal. Part of the problem with this is that I have so many books. And keep getting tempted with ever more every day. Especially when they throw out great ebook deals. VERY ESPECIALLY.
Do you ever face this predicament? Ever been so excited for a book that you buy it and somehow forget to read it? Are you like me and can’t hold yourself back from taking advantage of bargains? Is there anything you do to help tackle the ever growing pile on your shelves or in your ereader?
I’d love to hear any suggestions and thoughts!
