Does anyone else do this?

Still reading...


Ermmmm……


These are just some of the books I found scattered under and around my bed!
All books I have started in the last few months and intended to finish, but then got lured away by something else. (All except the Andrew Sean Greer – I am still reading that). I WILL finish all of them very soon and so refuse to move them away from my bed.
There is also a pile of soon-to-reads waiting hopefully in the corner for me to beckon to them into my bed. . .
This is filthy, dirty, fickle and naughty. But if you’re going to be any of those things it may as well be in the bedroom!!
Please tell me I am not alone in my book philandering … Does anyone else have nine on the go at once???!!!

Just for the record. These are the ones under my bed that I have recently finished, but I kept close because I loved them!:

Have read

They are Lorrie Moore’s Who Will Run the Frog Hospital, Sadie Jones’s The Outcast, Tania Hershman’s The White Road, Kate Morton’s The Forgotten Garden, Katherine May’s Burning Out, Elizabeth Baines’s Balancing on the Edge of the World, Caroline Smailes’s In Search of Adam and Seamus Heaney’s The Burial at Thebes

    I do exactly that! I counted 9 books under there this morning. It depends what mood I’m in as to what I read. Covered in dust of course. Oops, revealing my slovenly housewifely habits there!
