I'm a collector of books. A connoisseur, as well. But mostly just a collector. I grab books from bookstores, book sales, libraries...basically wherever I can find them. And then they sit around while I read other books that I've found. If my books were children, CPS would have come after me for neglect a long time ago.
Which is why I'm making a promise. I will acquire exactly zero new books until I have read the following:
-The 20(!) books that I recently bought at a library sale
-You by Charles Benoit
-No Impact Man by Colin Beavan
-The Iron Heel by Jack London
-In the Country of Last Things by Paul Auster
-We by Yevgeny Zamyatin
-The Occupy Handbook edited by Janet Byrne
-They Eat Puppies, Don't They? by Christopher Buckley
-The Natural Navigator: A Watchful Explorer's Guide to a Nearly Forgotten Skill by Tristan Gooley
-Rich, Free, and Miserable: The Failure of Success in America by John Brueggemann
Plus I have several e-books that I need to read and review for authors who are patiently awaiting said review.
moratorium on acquiring new books does not extend to books that people
send me for review, so feel free to contact me if you're interested in
having me read something. You can find my review policy here.
