Okay, we’re taking a slight break from the Pub 101 series (mainly because it’s been a busy week and I didn’t write it…shhh!).
It was recently pointed out to me by my husband that I might have a serious problem. I was showing him my Kobo library, including all of the books I’ve been buying in preparation for our upcoming 3 months in Southeast Asia. He scrolled through the list then asked, “how many of all your books have you read?”
I’ve had my Kobo for three years. Of the 81 titles that I have on there (I shudder at the amount of money that equates to), I’ve read… 22.
I KNOW! Yes, yeah, I can do math. That’s one in four. I get it.
Then my eyes turn to my bookshelves. Having bought 50 titles at the Calgary Reads Book Sale this year, I would say maybe 30% of the physical books that I own have been read. And let’s not even start on the growing length of my “to-read” shelf on GoodReads.
Fellow readers, fellow writers, I ask you – am I alone in this? And is it a bad thing? I genuinely don’t think so. I think it means that I have a plethora of stories to discover, when the time suits.
