A year of reading from home

I have 142 unread books at home and a feeling that those piles are not getting any smaller. I guess I'm right as last time I checked I had 121 unread books at home.

The books I want to read right now

To buy or not to buy?

At the beginning of this year I promised myself not to buy any new books for the whole year. Just read from my shelves, from my e-book subscription and from the library. It went well, I only bought a couple of e-books I needed for some research, but I have a feeling that my to-read … Continue reading To buy or not to buy?
