  • How many unread books do you have in your house, right now?
  • To the best of your recollection, what is the OLDEST unread book in your collection? How long has it been waiting?
  • Do your TBR books (that's "To Be Read," if you didn't know) haunt you, make you feel guilty that you haven't read them yet?

There are exactly 43 unread books of the dead tree variety that I have bought but not read yet.

And there are approximately 350 unread ebooks.

I do a pretty good job of rotating through my unread books. I think I've acquired all of these books during this century (ie, since year 2000), except one.

It's a science fiction World Treasury. I think I got it new and the copyright is 1989, so that's the book that's been with me the longest. It's huge and unwieldy and physically dangerous to read. ;) But I'm hoping to get it out this year and finish it off!

I don't feel guilty about my piles. I am reading all the time, and I will get to all the books eventually! It makes me happy to own them. And I get excited to have so many choices.
