Came via the Book Bench to a piece on Publishers Weekly by a book addict, a man who habitually goes to bookstores with no particular book in mind and walks out with three or four. He thinks he has too many books. He comments that most of the books are unread. (He has read 85 of 371.) He likes to think being surrounded by so many unread books is an expression of aspiration, on the whole a good thing.
Commenters then offer advice. The advice given in at least a couple of cases is be ruthless and get rid of UNread books.
