The Polysyllabic Spree: A Hilarious and True Account of One Man's Struggle with the Monthly Tide of the Books He's Bought and the Books He's Been Meaning to Read

The Polysyllabic Spree - Nick Hornby I loved this book, mainly because like Hornby, I buy way more books then I ever read. This one I did read and found comfort in the fact that there might be some value to all the books even if I know I can never finish them all. Part of the fun is just trying, and at least I finish more than I would had I not bought them all. And then, I love this sentence in the last paragraph of the book:"But with each passing year, and with each whimsical purchase, our libraries become more and more able to articulate who we are, whether we read the books or not."
