Happy New Year and a BIG Problem!

Dear reader, I have a problem. It's a grave problem, a seriously grave problem. And I am willing to bet that if you are a bibliophile like me, you may have this problem too! So let us join together in bookish solidarity and loving rapport and tackle this problem in 2016. I'm not one for making resolutions as I think any day of the year is a good day to make a change but I'm making an exception for this terribly grave problem.

This, my dear reader, is my issue:

I'm going to venture to guess that I easily donated about 150 books in 2015. I also have a library filled with books. These piles are in my bedroom. They've joined my happy home from various places. I am at least happy to say that most of these I did not buy. They are unread. Here lies the issue! I NEED to read these books. This is ridiculous, people!

I had already decided to try to get through as many of these books as I can in 2016; however, I do believe there is safety in numbers so I was thrilled to find out about this:

Yessss! This is exactly what I need in my life. It's a "choose your own adventure" path to achieving reading my own damn books greatness.

Wish me luck! And if you want to join the fight against your own book piles, sign up here!


  1. Hahahaha! I'm going to have to check this out! Sounds exactly like what I need!

  2. Right there with you girlfriend!!

  3. Yes, yes I think we all have a similar problem - hey, it could be worst right LOL

    Happy New Year!

  4. What a good idea. The book pile issue is very familiar... it looks like I'm building a large fort around my desk!

    Happy new year!

  5. Good luck to all with the TBR syndrome. Are you familiar with the Japanese term Tsundoku? If not -Google it.

    1. I'm very familiar with that term. The first time I came across it, I felt like someone must have been spying on me to come up with the term :P

  6. I love how you put that. Choose your own adventure. Lol

  7. That's a great problem to have :-) good luck and can't wait to hear about any good reads!
