tsundoku – 積ん読 (hiragana つんどく) (n.) buying books and not reading them; letting books pile up unread on shelves or floors or nightstands. (learn more)
This year, unlike last, I had little doubt as to my reading challenge.
My 2014 reading goal is to read 52 books. While I have no doubt that I will reach my goal, there is a catch.
Our library, though still quite small, keeps growing (we added 30 linear feet of shelves last year). While I’ve read many of them, I haven’t read all. There is a large section of our collection that I’ve felt as if I’ve read, mostly because E read those volumes each night before bed.
I plan to read 52 books from our library this year.
As for the term ROOT, there’s a group on librarything that uses it for their challenge urging members to Read our own Tomes (ROOT). I’ve not joined that group, but I really like the idea! If you wish to follow my progress, please check in with this comment, I’ll try to keep it updated.
Do you have a reading goal for this year?
