Follow Friday

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel of Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read.

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

There are only 35 books on my shelves that I haven't read. I tend to check books out of the library and only buy them later if I find that they merit a second read. The ones that I haven't read were mostly gifts, I think. Still, it hurts my soul that there are that many books on my shelves that I haven't read. I'll have to remember this the next time I am complaining that I've run out of reading material.

Happy Friday, everyone!


  1. You have a very small number of unread books compared to others. :)

  2. I would love to only have 35 books to read. I have way too many on my shelves. I just finally started going to the Library.

  4. Happy Friday! New Follower!

  5. I only have four. They were presents and not really something that strikes my interest. I'm a real book monster - if I get it in my hands, I read it right away.

    Happy Friday - have a great weekend!

  6. Phew, well 35 sounds healthy enough, I suppose. *grin


  7. I admire your ability to borrow from the library and only purchase the ones you love! Thanks for hopping by... Following back now!

  8. I'm glad to find someone else who only buys books they've read! I was beginning to feel like a weirdo! I do re-read books a lot, so maybe that's why. (following back)

  9. Hopping through. I'm like you. I usually buy books that I've already read and loved from the library.

  10. That is a very reasonable number. I mostly borrow from the library. I only buy a book if I know I want to keep it, usually they are series books.

  11. I have 23, but at least half of those are nonfiction. I'm guessing my percentage of unread books is greater than yours though. I only have one big cabinet full of books.

  12. @AG: Could be. I don't have that many though. Only three really small book shelves full. They are each about a foot and a half wide and only four shelves tall.

  13. WOW...I admire your self-restraint! I have WAY more than that on my bookshelves! And I didn't count the ones I don't want to read...only the ones I do want to get to one day. Though, this year, I hope to not buy any books!
