I’ve had a few conversations with people over the last few months about “to be read” shelves and piles. Some people are religious about not buying any more than they read, some (I *may* be in that class) have a pile of things waiting to go.
My only excuse for what you’re about to see (not that I need an excuse, of course) is that I buy a lot of second-hand books because I get captivated by their prettiness or unusualness at the time and I may never see them in that form or edition again. And sure everyone needs a little collection of some kind, right?
What you see below are mostly things I’ve yet to read along with one or two bits and pieces that I’m planning on re-reading or finishing at some stage…
