First it's Follow Friday, hosted by Alison Can Read. Don't forget to follow the Friday Feature: Pawing Through Books!
Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?
Oh help. I think if I just look at books I have not finished but only started I am already on about 30 books. And then to add the books I have not looked into yet, then in total I would say about 50?
And then there are books and papers on my Kindle that I haven't read. These are mostly classics that I save for when I have some moments of rest to completely emerge myself into 'Anna Karenina', or 'War and Peace' etc. How many of those there are I dread to imagine. The Gutenberg Project is to me what Net-a-Porter is to other!
Book Beginnings is hosted by A Few More Pages.
