So Many Books! So Little Time!


As with many winters in the North, the snow comes… and keeps falling. 

I never mind snow days. I don’t get cabin fever and I also look forward to the amazing conditions on the ski slopes when the roads clear. I can’t ever look at a snow day as bad. 

On Thursday, my work closed due to the 19 inches that fell on the building. My neighborhood got 12 inches, which was enough to stop me from driving anywhere. Also, the governor declared a state of emergency which means you aren’t allowed to drive unless necessary (done to allow emergency vehicles easy access anywhere). 

So, I decided to work on my bedroom and get a head start on spring cleaning. 

I’m not the tidiest of people, but I know that my new job means more books (not complaining). However, my tiny bedroom doesn’t have optimum storage. My greatest shelf in my room is the floor. It holds everything quite nicely, but I don’t think it’s meant as a shelf for a sea of bags, books, clothes, etc. I heard you’re supposed to walk freely around your bedroom. I’m not sure what they’re talking about though. 

In my attempts to organize, I realized that I have A LOT of books that I haven’t read. So, I took inventory. 

I have 116 books that I need to read!

I put together a list of all 116 books

I put together a list of all 116 books in a cute purple portfolio folder. 

My list is open to updates, but I think it might be a good way of tracking what books I still need to read. I think a physical list of what I need to read will help with me NOT buying anything new until the list falls into manageable territory. Then, I cross out books on the list–written in no particular order–whenever I finish them. For me, I enjoy crossing things off a list. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I do. 

What I'm reading right now. On Chapter 6!

Now back to reading…


One thought on “So Many Books! So Little Time!

  1. Hey, for some reason my computer doesn’t seem to be liking WordPress images on people’s blog at the moment so I can’t see any of your list. This makes me vair annoyed! I’m sure there’s lots of awesome book on it though. I completely understand the tbr dilemma and have fights of will power what feels like every other day. There are too many wonderful books in the world and not enough time to read them!

    Happy reading. 🙂
