To Be Read Pile


One of the many things on my list is organizing my to be read pile.

This one is two stacks wide and two deep as well. Not all books are mine though. But I think 3 of the 4 piles are mine. Seriously.

And that isn’t the only pile I’ll have to tackle.  My other unread books are in this cabinet. Somewhere here:

There are probably books in other spaces all around the house that haven’t been read yet. And I should find them before I find out that I bought another book that I already owned. Like what happened two weeks ago. I had bought the Phillip Pullman trilogy His Dark Materials at a second-hand bookstore in Cubao Expo after lunch one day. A week later, I open the cabinet and find that I already own a copy of book one, The Golden Compass (also known as Northern Lights).  No, I don’t remember buying it.


Reminder to self: List your to-be-read pile and keep a list on Evernote.
