Tsunduko: according to the Japanese, it’s the art of buying books and never reading them.
Ebooks make this easier and worse. You just lack the visible stack to taunt you. I figured it was time to make them visible. I started a tsundoku shelf on Goodreads. The next time I get the itch to look for a new book to read, I can start there.
Ten minutes into my purchase history on Amazon and I have 28 books. Some of them are collections, with a dozen or more books in them. I haven’t even checked around the flat yet for physical books to add to the list.
If I add incomplete series that I intend to finish into this list, it’s going to get disturbing.
