Today I decided to count how many books are on my 'to read' shelf/in a pile next to my bed/ hidden in the wardrobe. I own a staggering 131 books that I have not yet read blush. Even at the rather optimistic rate of 50 books a year that is almost 3 years of reading and this does not include all the unread books on my kindle.

So come on everybody fess up how many books do you have waiting to be read and repeat after me:
I must not buy any more books
I must not go to the library
I must not borrow books from my mum/sisters/friends
I must must must tackle my to-read pile grin

About fifty, I should think - haven't actually counted. And, of course, that doesn't include the ones on the read-again-because-they-were-so-good list.

I decided that I'd only buy one book each month this year, to reduce the pile. Have bought five so far and one on order which will arrive tomorrow. So, clearly it's not January, it's already June smile
