  1. You have a great challenge going! And you’re braver than me – I didn’t/don’t dare to count the unread books.


      • You have a literal library of books to catch up on! And I thought I had it bad when I realized I had somewhere in the area of 200. Haha, I can’t even rightfully compare unread piles with a number like 750. Yikes. How did you come into so many unread books?


      • Too much shopping and too little time!! I got into a real habit of buying books with no thought as to when I might read them. Do that over 10 years and you end up with a problem like mine!!
