My blog is about the books I'm reading, the independent bookstores I visit, the author and book events I attend, and any bookish related things I come across in the months and years to come!

Do You Have an Issue with Tsunduko?
Tsunduko is the regular occurrence of buying books and letting them pile up without reading them. Tsunduko has become an issue for me personally. I have so many books waiting to be read. Yet, I keep adding more books to my 'to be read' pile.
It isn't that I am NOT reading books. I'm simply acquiring books faster than I can read them... What can I say? I love books in all forms, whether they be audiobooks, ebooks, or physical books.
The above video from R. C. Waldun discusses 'How To Stop Buying Books And Start Reading - Overcoming Tsundoku'. I found the video to be interesting and informative. Maybe this information would help me read more of the books I currently have and slow down on the book buying for awhile.
Does anyone else have issues with Tsunduko?

Definitely, all the time. And I think most bloggers are the same. We hear of so many new (or old) books by people with a similar taste in books and can't help but buying them. And even if we read 24/7, we would never finish them. So, I will have to watch this video (I'm not a huge fan of those) and see whether it can help me. LOL.ReplyDelete
Good luck and let me know if the video helps you with Tsunduko.Delete
Most of the bookshelves in our house still groan under their load, even though we have donated many to the local library or given them to our children over the years. Now I read exclusively on my Kindle and I find that I have better control of any tsunduko tendencies. I usually keep under ten books lined up to read.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you have Tsumduko under control on your Kindle.Delete
