Feature & Follow Friday


Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by: Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. This week's question:

Q: Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?


I have 52 unread books in my bookshelf(and on the floor and on top of the dresser). I'm kind of shocked. It's not as many as a lot of people on book blogs have, but considering I only buy books twice a year and I usually stick to the books I know, it is a fairly large number. I need to start reading them. Does anyone else have trouble reading books on their shelf vs books from the library? Or is that just me? I can always make time for a library book but it takes me months to decide to read a book that I own.

  1. I'm pretty sure I have less than you! I try to be good about reading my books but I put library books first because there is that pressure of getting it back on time and for me, the guilt of knowing other people are waiting for it! :) Library books always get priority at my house. Happy Friday!

  2. 52 isn't that much at all. I'm sure you can handle it. :)

  5. I used to only buy books I'd already read before, if I bought books at all. My sister does that still, as a matter of fact. But then we moved to the sticks and the library is awful. So if I want to read anything that was published this century, it's going to have to be buying them.

    Followed!

  6. I know what you mean. It always takes me a little bit to decide which book to read next because I have so many! Usually I give myself a limit of twenty minutes to browse around (and yes, when you have over 300 unread books, there's some hardcore browsing involved). After twenty minutes, if I haven't picked anything yet, I just grab one and start reading. Usually this works out decently for me!

  7. Hopping through. 50 books is a good number. I have trouble reading my books b/c I read from the library so much.
