Feature and Follow Friday (8)

'Follow My Blog' Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The idea is to meet other book bloggers, and get to know one another. What a fun idea, and opportunity! 

Featured blogs: Pawing Through Books & Book Den

Q: Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

Oh, COME ON. This is embarassing and CRUEL.
The books I currently OWN, but haven't read: 60. Including eBooks.

Huh. That's not so bad... I actually intend on reading most of those... some of them are books I've bought, but probably won't read. Like... classics I had to own for posterity's sake. And, well, because they were pretty.

And, uh... I'm not counting my Jane Austen collection (I've only read any finished P&P)... but it's sitting there. And I've counted one omnibus which has 3 books in it as one >___<

What about you guys? I suspect (hope) yours will be even worse. This makes me feel better about myself :D

  1. I have an "own-must-read" shelf on Goodreads sitting at 76, but that is misleading, because if I have books in series, I only put the next (or first) book on the list, so it's likely higher than that.

    You're welcome.

    @Amanda: I started one this week. I only included the ones I really wanted to read--so it's at 36 XD

    @Kate: I figure we're all friends, right? Book Bloggers Anonymous? People's answers this weel have made feel a LOT better :D

    @Amanda: Ah... there's always someone worse off... and eBooks don't really even count, right? :P

  6. @Kim: haha! I swear I was panicking earlier this week! I made a Goodreads list of the books I own, but have yet to read, and was like "AAAAAAAAHHH!"

    I hope I do to... and I hope you get ALL the books you want :D

  10. Yeah, 60 is not too bad at all. Some of these peps are crazy. As you mentioned on my blog, 500 owned unread books is just...I don't even know what to say. :)

    Happy reading and happy follow friday.

  11. Hopping through. I would like to buy some classics with nice bindings - just because they're so pretty on the shelf.

  12. That's really not so bad considering some of the numbers in the 100s I've seen on other blogs. I have about 50. But I didn't count eBooks, which I know has to be higher. :/
