We all know that if we get too greedy, if we buy too many books and we get too far behind working our way through the Bedisde Book Pile, instead of being a stack of Wealth, the books begin to morph into a To Do pile–ugg!
But guess what: solution! When I order a book fromRussell Books, I get my order in a brown paper bag, and if I leave my new book in that bag, waiting for its turn to reach the top of the “Read Next” pile, I forget what’s in the bag, and instead of slowly evolving into a Chore, it becomes a Surprise. Yippee!
I do realize this little ritual of duty, anticipation and delight is all in my head. The biliophile’s head is a very odd place, right?
