Instead of washing my car, cleaning my rooms, studying for the GRE, watching the DVDs that are due back at the library or reading for my online book discussion, I decided to use a good little chunk of time today to inventory my novels.
Novels make up the greatest chunk of my total book collection. I have 226 total novels, including adult & children's. Three of them are currently being read, although two of those haven't been picked up in months. 103 of my novels are unread. 120 of my novels, or about 53%, have been read. I really need to work on that last number. I was very relieved, though, to find that I have read more than half of my novels. I wasn't sure if that was the case.
This inventory was aimed at forcing myself to realize I was buying TOO MANY. Of course, the total has already gone up to 227 novels, because I recieved one as a belated birthday gift last night.
I'm tempted to ask you to post your list, so I can revel in it and so I can reference it if I want to borrow something :) :) :)
