When the beautiful disorder of Christmas retreats into boxes tucked in the closet, I view my home with new eyes. Floors are swept and vacuumed, the mantle and tables dusted and free of the past year's collected clutter. I relish the minimalism. The possibility for something new to fill the empty spaces.
Empty spaces which upon further perusal reveal an inordinate amount of books -- all over the space.
I ponder my piles.
|Plus the ones behind the above.|
|Crap, I forgot the ones on my Kindle.|
|The ones I'm currently reading.|
Blogger James Reads Books offers up a yearly challenge/dare in regard to unread books. He calls it the TBR Double Dog Dare. For the first three months of the new year, only books on your To Be Read shelf can land in your hands.
I'm in. Thinking I'm a good candidate. Double Dog Dare be damned.
I will avoid all trips to the library, favorite bookstores and late night perusals of what's up at Goodreads and Amazon. No distractions.
And I'm never distracted.
What's on your reading shelf?
