- Are you guilty of tsundoku?
“We collect, covet, and guard books the way a dragon does jewels. There’s even a word for having too many books: tsundoku.”
Do you buy more books than you can afford and/or more books than your house can accommodate? Do you have more books than you can ever read? Do you like the feel of a real tangible book?..
- So, have you bought any new books lately?
Are your bookshelves overstuffed? Can you barely see your house behind the dusty stacks of books you might read one day?
Maybe it’s time for a purge. Alternatively,
“…stop beating yourself up for buying too many books or for having a to-read list that you could never get through in three lifetimes.”
What say you?
