I am a chronic buyer of books. These are but two of my books shelves. I have more. And boxes of books under the bed, in cupboards, scattered around, double, triple-stacked.
My book collection is collectively worth more than anything else I own, including my car.
Reading is a massive part of my life. Books, read and re-read are like old friends. However, I’ve realised that out of the hundreds and thousands of libres I own, there are more than a few I have purchased and Never Read.
So, until the end of the year I will be reading (almost) each and every one. My conservative estimate is they cost about $700 all up. In reality it’s more like a cool grand. So. The challenge begins.
