Topic of Choice - Reading Off My Own Shelves vs. Library Books
On top of that bad habit, I love library books. There's just something about entering a huge building full of free books that I can't resist. There's nothing wrong with loving libraries. But when I am constantly filling my own bookshelves, but hardly ever reading anything from them? That's not so good.
So I entered the Mount TBR Reading Challenge this year, hoping to read 36 books that I own. It doesn't sound like a lot, but it's a plenty high goal for me. I'm not quite two-thirds of the way through, and I'm discovering something strange. Rather than feeling "forced" to read off my own shelves, I want to. I'm avoiding libraries. I like the feeling of accomplishment I get when a book on my shelf is no longer unloved. I'm sure I'll finish my reading challenge this year. But more importantly, I may have found a solution for my overflowing yet neglected bookshelves. I'll just keep chipping away, one book at a time.
