I am wanting to try out this new feature on the blog and I hope that you all will like it. I'm planning on doing this feature every Monday. I find that I have some bookish confessions but I hope to find that I'm not the only one...
This week my confession is:
There are so many books to read! I'm nervous that I will never finish my tbr list and it's a little overwhelming to think that my list grows quicker than I am able to read the books on it. Will I ever read all the books that I want to? This guilt goes so far as that when I finish a book, I feel relieved because I got one more book read off of my endless tbr list. Sometimes I almost feel like I didn't enjoy the book as much as I should have because I was too concerned about finishing it in a certain amount of time so I can make sure I read x amount of books this week/month. Another contributor: I continually buy books even though I have a pile of books on my shelves that I have not read. This causes my guilt to spread since I'm only adding to my unread pile.
Occasionally I suffer from unread library book guilt. I feel bad when I return a book to the library that I wasn't able to read. This especially happens when I check out a bunch of books (like over 20) and then I read what I can but end up returning half of the books unread.
