The List

So, I thought the best way to start off this journey would be to make a list. A list of every single book I have in my collection that I still need to read.

I did this for several reasons:

  1. It will help me have some sort of document of the books I’ve read and haven’t read. I’ve been meaning to document my books so this is a great way to finally get round to it.
  2. It will make the books I haven’t read more visible to me, thus easier for me to remember which ones I still need to read.
  3. The sheer number of unread books I have will shock me into reading them. 

I’m going to write a list of all the books and their authors. I know this will probably be really tedious, but I want a visual representation of my unread books. Plus, I will also use this page as a checklist. When I’ve read a book on the list I’ll come back to this page and mark it as read.

Going through all my unread books has made me realise that:

I have a lot of unread books. It’s actually worse than I thought. 

I have a very diverse range of genres. Which is great!

Right, here we go…

    I too have a large collection of unread books; I blaem my thrifting habit! There are a few books on your list that I’m familiar with but have yet to read as well. The Road, Slaughterhouse 5, Under the Skin, and Sense and Sensibility. Lolita is still on my bookshelf as I have yet too finish reading. I stopped at a chapter that troubled me, so I just stopped reading.

      Ooh, I’m curious as to what made you stop reading Lolita! It’s a troubling book in general, to be honest, considering the subject matter. But I’ve heard many good things about it so I want to give it a go!
