Too Many Books?


I've always believed there's no such thing as too many books, but lately I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the books I have in my To Be Read pile. I have about 15 paperback books I've purchased in the past few months and haven't read yet, about 50 books on my Kindle, even more on my Kindle Fire, and I have pages and pages of books that I want to borrow from the library because there's no way I can afford buy all the books I want to read.

The problem is that they all call to me and I have a hard time picking which one to read first. I've been reading novellas because they're usually 100 pages or less so I can mark them as read and move them off the To Be Read list that seems to grow by leaps and bounds daily. 

Apparently I'm not the only person who thinks I have too many books I want to read, my sister gave me a t-shirt the other day that reads, "So many books, So little time." And you know what, she's right.

  1. 60+ books on my TBR shelf (and I mean To Be Read, not Want to Read or Wish List) and 200+ on my Kindle. I just borrow Insurgent and Allegiant from a friend. And I'm in the middle of 3 WIP. I'm figuring one winning lottery ticket (nothing less than $1M of course) and I'll be all set!

    1. Hi Charlotte,
      Oh my goodness! And I'm feeling overwhelmed by my books. If I had all of yours, I'd probably be in a panic.

      Can you imagine all the books we could buy with a winning lottery ticket? Of course, we'd still have the time issue unless the winning amount was enough to allow for the quitting of day jobs. :o)
