Another emailed list from AbeBooks, this time of reasons for not reading a book. I'm always surprised when one of the reasons given is, 'it's long' but then, I personally love Dickens and reading him is no hardship. Have a look at the list of twenty five books people have in the TBR pile but don't actually read. I've read five of them, started and failed to finish a sixth and feel no guilt at all about not having read the rest. Never even heard of some of them and so wot?
A striking illustration of a good example: another book purge. More to go, especially as a person might be stuck indoors for a fortnight with time to tidy up.
That fiendish normblog quiz: update. The answers are here. I got 40/50 and I'm absolutely kicking myself except over a couple of authors I'd never heard of. Anyone else going to own up?
