Tsundoku – the habit of collecting stacks of books that you haven’t read and might never get to; the constant act of buying books but never reading them so that they pile up in one’s room; the act of art of acquiring more books than one will ever read, such that they gather in stacks and flocks on shelves and floors.

Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.

Tsundoku is the condition of acquiring reading materials but letting them pile up in one’s home without reading them.
