Follow Friday (23)

Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

On my shelf--13. But that's after my month-long stint of forcing myself not to read any new books until I made a dent in the ones I already have. Most of my unread books are ones that I picked up just on principle because they were really cheap. I think the book that's sat unread the longest is "Bleak House" by Charles Dickens--I've had that one for 5 years or so.

I also have this big bag of, like, 50 books that I got at a book sale that I haven't really tackled yet. Not to mention all the free books on my Kindle that I haven't gotten to. I have a lot of reading to do . . .

How many unread books do you have? Which one's sat on your shelf the longest?


  1. I love the name of your blog! :) I purposefully left out the books from the library and the ones on my Kindle in my count. Otherwise it would've been ugly... New follower, check me out at:

  2. Hopping through. I didn't think about some of the obscure ones. I've had War and Peace sitting on my shelf since high school. I do want to read it some day.

  3. Hey Karen, This is why I started blogging, when my friends look at me like i'm crazy owning all these unread books, I just come to the blogosphere and find myself among fellow "crazies". Have a great weekend, new follower ;)

  4. That was a smart thing to do. I really need to read what I have first. *sigh* LOL!

    Have a nice weekend!

  5. New follower! I have had Brothers Karamazov on my shelf for years. It is a marathon of a book, and I have been trying to read it forever. Looking forward to your posts.

  6. Good morning - new follower stopping by on the Friday Follow.

    I'm all for the big stack of old fashioned physical books . . . my (yikes!) 400+ gives me something to do if I win the lottery, or if civilization breaks down into some post-apocalyptic dystopia. :)

  7. Good for you not buying any new books for a while. I wish I was that strong :)

  8. 13 is a very reasonable number. Good luck not buying! Stay strong.
