A harmless minor pleasure or a chronic exercise in futility?
My grandfather once told me I would probably never get around to reading all the books on my TBR list. He was quite right, though it hasn’t stopped me from adding to it - currently numbering 5,510 books. If anything, as long as one never stops reading, one always has something (or many things) to think about. Hopefully one reads widely and becomes a more well-rounded person because of it.
Sadly I am the slowest, most distractible reader in history so my 'books I've read this year' pile tends to be similar to what many read in a month. Which, as you can imagine, means my book to be read list is H U G E
