Tsundoku

September 7, 2017

 

The Japanese word for "books you buy but don't read."  I read this somewhere on another site.  I am admittedly a book collector.  It is a dangerous thing that I work as a Librarian and thus have access to enough books to feed my habit.   I have piles, stacks, shelves of them.  My book eyes are always bigger than my book reading time.   There is nothing better than covering up with a blanket and spending some time reading.  It is a way to be good to myself.  I guess, if I am honest, if given the choice of Option A: Reading, Visiting a Museum, Exploring a Pioneer Cemetery, or Option B: Going to a party,  Eating Dinner Out, or Bungee Jumping...I am Option A all the way.  And out of all of the choices, give me a good book and a blanket when I need peace and comfort.   So if I stack them around my chair or pile them upon my nightstand, Tsundoku makes me happy.  

 

It is a way to escape the stress that is often around.   Speaking of such, my dog has just treed a cat and is alerting the neighborhood that he has just treed a cat, and said cat is getting angrier by the look of the swollen fur on its tail and haunches.  I am off again to manage the chaos of life.  So many books, so little time, Tsundoku.
