Overall, the aim of having Copious Free Time is to get around to a whole bunch of things that I've wanted to do for ages. One of those things is to get through my unread books stack.
Well, today the count finally dropped into single figures*. It had come close a couple of times in the past, but each time a new Amazon aid parcel would arrive before it could break the magic threshold.
Of course, the books that are left on the list are the really tricky ones. The books I'd like to have read, rather than the books I'd actually like to readand so I never quite get around to actually reading them. Big, thick books, full of dense type.
But still, nearly there.
*Well, ish. A year or two ago I acquired a couple of shelves of books from a friend who was just going to dump them at a charity shop; I don't include those in the count. So I guess it's actually a count of unread books that I've paid money for.
