You may have heard of the numerical Sudoku game, but I play a much better game. And a lot more fun.
Do you tsundoku?
That may be unfair, so let me have the Cambridge online dictionary give you the definition:
The practice of buying a lot of books and keeping them in a pile because you intend to read them but have not done so yet; also used to refer to the pile itself.
Until I recently expanded my office shelf-space, you may have either called the collection an episode of the Hoarders television show or, my preference, the tsundoku challenge.
I find great pleasure in being surrounded by books. The collected wisdom of incredibly brilliant people who have poured their lives into words that are bound in a way that I can carry them with me. Amazing.
I have an idea. I should get a job working with books. Oh, wait. I already did.
Next time we see each other, on the count of three, throw up your hands and shout gleefully, “Tsundoku!”
