It's probably because I'm reading Bora Chung's Cursed Bunny at the moment, but this is 100% true.

Because we all need help with our TBR, it's my duty to share this list http://www.paperbackparis.com/paperbackparis-best-new-books-2021/

There's some books that I've heard about and some fascinating ones that I haven't heard about and I've slowly been going through it and adding it to my list and that's been the highlight of my week so far 😂

I thought I must be a lay librarian but I'm afraid it's verged into tsundoku master territory. Although I do think I've read most of them (don't make me count). Where do you fit? Link to article in comments.

ravenlee I‘m so far into tsundoku territory I can‘t even see lay librarian from here...and I‘m good. 2y
ValerieAndBooks Having at least 500 books seems very low to become a tsundoku master 😂. That might be most of us on Litsy 😊 . 2y

BookNAround The article doesn‘t offer this option but according to the number on my LibraryThing account, I‘m the tsundoku master of tsundoku masters. 😂 2y
ImperfectCJ I'm pretty sure I'm a lay librarian, but I'm a little afraid to count and find out for sure. 2y
Avanders Well into tsundoku master land... 📚📚📚📚📚 2y
Liz_M Of course a tsundoku master. Also, why does this categorization assume the books are unread? I have read 66.1% of my collection. 2y
Hooked_on_books Fun article! I‘m totally a tsundoku master by book number, but I also keep very few books after reading them, as I am largely not a rereader. So I have elements of several of these descriptions, as I suspect we all do. 2y

Trying to sort out my October reading...

Spooky month so want to read ALL of the spooky books.

#Victober & I love Victorian novels & I want to read ALL of Victorian lit.

The Tempest is so interesting for #ShakespeareReadAlong & want to read ALL of the Tempest retellings while it's fresh in my mind.

The Secret Commonwealth comes out & I want to reread the trilogy & FINALLY get around to Book of Dust.

So clearly I'll read none of these 🤣

Cathythoughts 😂 Scary 😱😂I just got this one on my kindle - Litsy recommendation- sounds good too 3y
batsy @Cathythoughts Yes, I just added that to my TBR because I saw it here! And when I say added to my TBR I mean that most sincerely 😂😂 3y

ValerieAndBooks Do we ever get to read all the books we want to read in any given month 😂?? 3y
Tanisha_A Just so apt! 😆 3y
batsy @Cathythoughts The His Dark Materials series is beautiful, Cathy! But I read it so long ago and need a refresher before the new books :) Victober started out on BookTube ... Fun idea for sure 🥳 📚📚 3y
batsy @saresmoore @erzascarletbookgasm @Tanisha_A Those images just speak to my soul when it comes to deciding what the heck to read from my infinite TBR 😅 3y

My friend and I have coined a new phrase/portmanteau.

Her: "I want to go to Barnes and Noble but need no more books."

I said we could go to browse and just be around the books and the book atmosphere. Also - I have a coupon.

So we decided that we will go, and we will call it "book bathing" or "tsundoku-yoku" - a play on shinrin-yoku (Japanese therapy of forest bathing) and tsundoku (piles of unread books).

I was at the bookshop & is December is the most *intense* month for parents & children? 😅 There was a mother firmly telling her son that there is only X amount of money to spend on books & he had to choose which book he really wanted. He had a look of PURE ANGUISH on his face. I totally relate, kid. And I'm sorry to say, the anguish doesn't lessen even after you grow up & earn $$. Still can't afford ALL of the books 😭 Stay strong, lil' reader

Tamra 😭 Life lessons. 4y

I was doing so well getting through my library pile, but then I went to return a stack of books. And it occurred to me: This week is the end of term. The kids will be on Easter break for over two weeks. What if the weather is really bad, and we run out of books while the library is closed for Easter? 🙀 So I filled my backpack. I should probably go back at least once more this week, just in case. Right? #LibraryHaul #NoSuchThingAsTooManyBooks
