Every day I bring in more books for this stack, and I hope to whittle it down a bit more this summer.
So far, this stack has twelve unread books:
The Swallows Nest (a review book), by Emilie Richards
Fairy Tale Interrupted, by RoseMarie Terenzio
Good Me Bad Me, by Ali Land
The Comfort of Others, by Kay Langdale
Becoming Queen Victoria, by Kate Willliams
The Girl: A Life in the Shadow of Roman Polanski, by Samantha Geimer
Love Letters, by Debbie Macomber
What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, & Love, by Carole Radziwill
Another Brooklyn, by Jacqueline Woodson
Talking As Fast As I Can, by Lauren Graham
Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, by Therese Anne Fowler
America’s Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, by Sarah Bradford
This stack does not represent the whole of of my unread print books, but they do spotlight the majority of them. Why have I stacked them up so blatantly on my living room coffee table? Why have I not left them in the office, where they could be out of sight?
Well, that’s why, of course. If they are more visible, I am more likely to pick one up to read instead of primarily relying on the books that reside on Pippa.
Plus…I love the look of them.
If I put my mind to it, I could clear all of these off before summer’s end.
How do you deal with your TBR books, the ones that are “physical” rather than digital? Does the sight of them give you pleasure…or pain?
