I know there are many of you out there who, like me, love to buy books before you’ve finished reading the ones you already own. I have been guilty of indulging in this pleasure for years and as a result I have some books that are over 10 years old, still unread. It is an addictive indulgence, especially when you come across a book that’s been on your to-read list for ages, or you find an irresistible bargain at the second hand store or simply because buying a good book makes you feel good!
So I am setting a challenge for myself – to read at least 15 books in 2016 that I own but have never read or that are sitting amongst my parents’ large book collection at their home (as on 27th December 2015).
I will be updating my progress on this blog. Let’s see how I fare!
I wonder if this challenge will in any way curb my book purchasing habits. Somehow, I don’t think it will!
Do you own a pile of books you have never read? Do you have a reading challenge for 2016? I would love to hear about it.
