Okay, maybe not that huge. Still, it's a little overwhelming. And it's given rise to something I've dubbed Shiny New Book syndrom.
The Shiny New Book works a lot like the Shiny New Idea. It comes in the middle of the book you're reading and goes "Hey! I'm shiny! Read me instead!" But as soon as you hit your stride in that book, ANOTHER book comes along and the cycle starts all over again.
Now this has nothing to do with the quality of the book. I leave books all the time because they don't pull me in or I'm not invested enough. This is a different thing. It has to do with me getting into bad habits and not being able to focus on one thing at a time. I swear to you I haven't actually finished a book in over a month. And that's no good.
So this weekend I'm going to start catching up on my reading. Here are just some of the great books I started that I need to finish.
SO MUCH GOODNESS, RIGHT? So now I just have to figure out where to start.
Have you ever had Shiny New Book Syndrome? What do you do?
