I know it’s hyperbolic, but it does feel that way to me when it comes to the books I have yet to start or finish reading. Yes, my to-be-read pile is indeed five years (or more) deep and a mile (or more) high.
For example, once upon a time I bought Book 1 by an author friend, with a great intention of reading the book. However, time flew by, and she has since completed the entire series before I barely started reading Book 1. The good news is that now I can binge-read her entire series. The bad news is that my TBR pile is stacked ever higher to the point that I’m going to need a whole year’s worth of vacation so that I can read all these books I wanted to read.
Speaking of unfinished things, life is like that sometimes. I can look back across my life and see a lot of “un” things, such as unfinished business. For example, for the last two decades, I’ve been meaning to clear out the basement of our house. We had old boxes in there filled with things we didn’t remember we had, college textbooks from the last century (literally), and things we could have thrown out or given away many years ago.
However, years rolled by, and two decades later, we still didn’t get around to it.
Well, we had a chance in the last two months to do our Vicennial Spring Cleaning. And clean we did. We emptied out the entire house into roughly three PODS and a UHAUL. The rest of it, we let them go. The saddest thing I had to do was to give away our practice piano on which my son has played for fourteen years through many piano competitions, but my hubby promised to get me another piano when we get to our next house.
So, yes, things left alone over here could end up growing five years deep and a mile high. Now, back to finding time to read those amazing books I can’t wait to read…
What about you? Do you have unfinished books you wanted to finish reading but haven’t? When do you think you’ll get to them? Or have you decided not to finish reading them, after all?
