A Hoarder of Books…
I may have become a hoarder. A hoarder of books. Although I prefer to say I am a bibliophile – someone who loves to read, admire and collect books. Either way, my sunroom shelves are overflowing with books. Books I have read that I want to keep, books I plan to read, and books I have acquired along the way. When I can’t balance another pile on the edge of the shelf, I transfer the ones I am not sure I will have a chance to read to a different bookshelf in the basement. My finished basement was for the kids, but now they are older so little by little I have been taking over the shelves down there, replacing the video games, comic books, sports trophies and bobble head statues with my books. Often I will go down there and take some of the books I relegated to that lower level and bring them back up. I like to see what I have, what my options are, and I don’t want to miss anything!
Every week, new books are released and I am constantly making note of what I want to read next. Below I have listed some of my top choices. We all know this list will change, for sure, and most likely it will get longer. But for today, here is the plan!

Tsundoku is a Japanese word for a person who collects books and lets them pile up everywhere around the house, but doesn’t read them. I’m trying to avoid this by reading what I have but not sure I can ever catch up!
