Books, books, books.

Does anyone need a book?
I am an avid book collector, this is about a third of all my books. Just wish I could read them as quickly as I can buy them!
No thanks, I've got a zillion unread books myself.

Unfortunately I buy books much quicker than I can read!

I am the same Kathy. I have a lot of books to be read but yet I keep buying more

I have a smaller pile but I too seem to buy books a lot quicker than I can read them. You can't beat a good book!

@rebcastillo77 - Ha ha. That is only about a third of my books! My place looks like a library - just wish I had more time to read.

Wow a fellow nurse who loves reading too. Ever heard of this site:

www.bookcrossing.com - I love it! My profile/bookshelf is here:

Great way to share the love of reading!

@shemchin - thanks for that Sheila. I'll look it up and join up soon.

@Kathy - Just another thing to take up your time, right?? But it is a wonderful way to share books. I can "wild release" (leave them anywhere for others to enjoy) or "controlled release" (send them to another bookcrosser). In fact I brought a big tote with me to Branson so I can wild release (WR) them here.

@shemchin what a good idea although not sure if that happens here in Australia. I'd probably get into trouble for littering if I started leaving books lying around!

I have a pile of books the same - I try giving them away after I read them but often get a big pile back in return.

@emb151 - I have not read one of those books!
posted October 25th, 2010  
oh wow! You do have quite a collection!

I've got a pile of unread ones like that, too. But the reason is that I borrow all mine from the library now, rather than spending a fortune, so I have to read them first in order to get them back into circulation. Re Sheila's suggestion above: you can do that but it's usually in the capital cities that I've come across them in Oz.

@girlie - Borrowing from the library sure puts a hold on reducing my pile of books too. I live in Sydney and have never heard of "wild release"

I have the same problem. I keep buying books, no time to read 'em! And I refuse to get one of these Kindle things.

@electricwriter - no kindle for me either.
Long live the book!
