I have a confession. I have a HUGE pile of books just sitting and waiting to be read. No, not that little pile to the left, that is the pile I am currently reading. Okay that pile is actually my confession. Now you might wonder what the real problem is...it is just an innocent pile of 7 books. That's about the average number of books I always have going. I'm someone who always has multiple books going, which I am constantly going back and forth from. The real problem is this pile has been been the same for way too long.
I started these books over a month ago and they are still here staring me down as if they were forgotten. Okay that's a lie! It hasn't been a month it's been 2...and a half...OKAY FINE, one of them I started over 3 months ago! I'm so ashamed!!
Ever since I got sucked into the blogging world I have found all kinds of amazing books that I have to read RIGHT NOW! So I bought those and started a new "currently reading" pile. I'll sometimes find my way back to my old pile and read a few chapters in one of the books but they seem to just hang around forever.
Now, don't get me wrong, I was enjoying these books (the small parts of them I had read ) that isn't the issue, but I just can't seem to get into them because I constantly have a new book creeping into the corner of my vision. Something is wrong with me. I need help...I need a plan.
So I'm not buying a new book, I'm not even starting a new book, until I finish at least 3 of these. I figure by the time I finish 3 of the 7 I will have come a long way with the other 4 as well and I will be able to set my conscience at ease when I rush to the bookstore once again.
