Book Piles
sun 8 feb 2015

Entry #1 on this page (tagged: february)

This month I'm working on mail, for LetterMo, and my reading time has been significantly reduced. And my Book Piles are staring me in the face.

Yes. I have piles of books that I've bought but haven't read yet. I had to start a new pile when I came home from xmas. I am doing my part... the new pile has been reduced by 3 books already.

It's been a while since I've done a count of my unread books. And I thought it would be interesting to list them here...

Book Pile

This is my new 2015 pile. Not too bad, huh? Except a couple of the books are some heavy reading.

The wordpress book, yeah, is a tech book... I've been interested in learning WP for a while now and it's been ages since I've learned any new computer stuff. So, that's one of my goals this year!

2015 Pile = 4 Books

Book Pile

This is my 2014 Overflow Pile. Some odds and ends here... A couple movies on the left, including Doctor Who dvds! and the wrapped bundles are back issues of a magazine that I love: GreenPrints. And there's an issue of another mag I subscribe to: the magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. There are also a few books in this pile that I started reading and then abandoned for whatever reason. When I come back to them, I'll have to start over at the beginning.

(Not counting magazines and zines)
2014 Overflow = 13 Books

Book Pile

And this is my Ancient Pile. I don't even know how long I've had some of these books! And this is the pile I'm referring to when I say "I can't die until I've read all my books!" haha.

Ancient Pile = 13 Books

Total = 30 Books

Huh, well it's not as bad as I thought. Though, there are a couple more books laying around randomly... Plus a couple more on my kindle... But probably the actual total is less than the 50 books that I thought it was! So that's good!

And, since I read about 30 to 35 books in a year, I could conceivably get through my piles in a year or so. But how can anyone get through a whole year without buying any new books? Impossible!

ha. So many books, so little time!

LetterMo 2015

This is the last day of the Month of Letters challenge of sending daily mail. I have sent mail every day and I have met my personal goal of sending more than 150 bits of mail.

Trouble is, I haven't sent all the mail I planned on! I just ran out of time for the Dec PCs, the packages, a couple of long letters, the BH Monthly Greeting Card exchange which I'm about 6 months behind on! Oh, and not to mention all the replies I want to make... I met some great new pen pals this year.

So the spirit of LetterMo will continue for at least another month or two. :)

But, with a new month, I want to start a new project! I have so many things I want to do and I must make room for them.

  What I REALLY want to do is start studying WordPress. This is a project that I've had in the back of my mind for a while. The book I bought is over there, staring at me, "read me, read me." ha.

  What I Should be doing is completing the Journal class I took in january. I got about half-way thru before I ran out of steam, and time. It's not a forever class, meaning the lessons will disappear mid-April, so I really need to go back and do my homework.

  But I kinda want to do some art projects... Get out the calligraphy pen and the inks, or start a new notebook with some coloured pencil drawings.

  There are a couple organizational projects to do... like printing and binding my paper journals, and setting up some photo albums of my postcards, and going thru some of the boxes in my closet. My inbox is up over 100 again.

  Plus a 100 other projects that interest me. We've already started working in our community garden plot. I need to work out a plan of action for the veganic gardening club I'm a member of. And there's a vegan mailing group I have plans for. I've been slacking off, I need to get some exercise. And when it's not raining, I'd like to go get some photos at Fern Ridge. And I'd like to start practicing American Sign Language. Plus all the other books I want to read. Piano. Significant Other is learning to juggle, I want to, too!

And, well, do you really want me to type out all 100 things?! I don't actually have time for that! ;)
