Confessions of a Book Hoarder

In my apartment I have two really tall bookshelves that my best friend and I bought a few years ago at Ikea, which I have now inherited.

They are, of course, completely full! But I've never really gone through to catalogue everything I have until now.

So I've been going through and slowly adding things to Goodreads (I'm here, btw), and I'm not done, but I already have 32 books on my 'own- to be read' shelf.


I really didn't think that it was that high, which is funny, because just the other day I was watching the 'TBR Shame' videos on Youtube. I seem to be among the group :(

One of the discoveries I made was this:

I had NO idea that I even had this, it was buried down on one of the lower shelves. I am actually so excited to find this, it looks like a really interesting read, and to be honest, I'm trying to remind myself of what it's like to read a physical book... I adore ebooks, but I do think that they're a bit divorced from the lovely medium of reading, at times! Not that I prefer them to ebooks, I just think there's a time and a place for both.

Who knows how big my tbr-shame list will be by the time I'm done, haha, but it's reminded me that I have books sitting right here in my little apartment that need attention, so I'm going to try and whittle those down over the next few weeks!

I also have a few blog ideas floating around, so we'll see about posting those in a few days :)
