Tsundoku: The art of buying books and never reading them. Glad to know there's a word for that pile on my bedside table. And that one reserved bookshelf. And, virtually, on my Kindle.
Actually the other thing it reminds me of is how with some "book clubs" I'm in, everyone else seems a lot more shy of reading large things at once than I am. I'm not sure if that means everyone is so time-stressed, or if I'm just a faster reader, or if they don't have the "from time to time you just sit and read and read" culture in their background.
