I own too many books. This may not be a bad thing, but it certainly is something I have no more space for. Besides, I have too many books unread at home, and the library has tonnes of book I want to read for free. So why am I so caught up with the need to possess books?
I've decided to list my book purchased at the sidebar of this blog, and to monitor how many books I buy, and how many books I allow to go unread.
This is partly an initiative to make me more aware of my book buying, and perhaps to encourage me to read the books I have bought previously, before buying new ones.
I will date the books purchased, and when they are read, I will strike them off. At the end of the year, I'll do a quick survey of whether this little exercise is actually effective.
