The good news: Amazon wish lists make it possible for me to remember all the books I’ve seen that look interesting or heard about and want to read.
The bad news: Amazon wish lists make it possible for me to remember all the books I’ve seen that look interesting or heard about and want to read.
Why is this bad? Because as of today, I have 88 books on my Amazon wish list. That’s on top of the bookcase in my bedroom of books I own but haven’t yet read. And the hundreds on my kindle that, again, I own but haven’t yet read. Oh–and the folder in my Evernote files where I clip others that haven’t yet found their way onto my Amazon list.
That saying “too many books, too little time” definitely proves itself true in my world. Although I should probably add “too little money” to that list as well. (I’m not a very good library reader because if I like a book, I want to keep it.) I keep my eyes open for good deals. Sometimes I even take the plunge and pay full price. But that just means an open space to be filled on the wish list and another title in my hand to find time to read. It’s a vicious cycle, I know, but I can’t imagine my life any other way.
What does your book wish list look like these days? All one genre or a variety? How do you keep track of that list? On Amazon? On paper? Some other way? Does your list keep growing the way mine does?
