..a tbr shelf.
I didn't know what tbr stood for until quite recently. The term kept coming up over at Cornflower Books and when I twigged what it meant (to be read, as I expect you all know!) I really felt I was missing out on something good. I have always read every book as it comes in the door and rarely have one unread.
Here are some of the titles in my letter to Santa.
Findings by Kathleen Jamie, Christmas At Cold Comfort Farm, Rory Stewart's The Places In Between, Ishiguro's Nocturnes, The Snow Leopard, Venice For Lovers, Paris by Julian Green in both French and English to revive my rusty schoolgirl French, and How To Be Danish, The Collected Works of Bernard McLaverty....I'm just warming up to this and plan to add a few more. (The difficult bit will be making room on the shelf.)
There is an interesting post at Cornflower Books on the ntbr list (that's not-to-be-read list) which engendered lots of comments. See it here.
Do you have a tbr pile/shelf/collection?
And what do you want for Christmas?
