Stop! Reading Time!

I've mentioned before on this blog about my book-buying addiction. Quite simply, it needs to stop. Earlier, the car pulled up outside, and as the man got The Book People box out of his car, I literally squealed for joy. This isn't healthy.

Nor is it helpful, as none of the books you are about to see are ones I need to read for university. They are here simply because I like reading. There's no shame in that, of course, but after opening the box, and adding it's contents to the books I already own but haven't read yet, it did flicker through my mind that maybe this is a little shameful:


  1. Santa won’t be able to get into your bedroom with your Christmas presents Ewar!!

  2. I'll make a conservative estimate of 53 books there. And less than 5 look readable. That's quite some achievement.

  3. Some good stuff. And some Clarkson.
    If you want to see unread books, try my office (roughly 600) and my house, where one room contains the 4 extra-height bookcases for stuff I haven't read yet.

  4. Sarah Palin's got a box-set out?
