To read shelf

There are a couple of indications that things are not running as I would like in my professional life. One of them is the amount of books that are sitting on my to read shelf. I love reading on a variety of subjects. I also love to read a good novel as well. A long time ago I decided only to buy books if there is a reasonable chance that I will read them within the next 6 months.

When I get new books I put them on a special shelf. I have dedicated one shelf of my book closet to books I want to read. I got this from readingThe Little Guide to Your Well-Read Life by Steve Leveen. He also has one shelf dedicated to books he wants to read. And here is my catch, I now have more books that I want to read then there is room on that shelf. And that’s when I know there is something wrong, professionaly.

I’m not sure what’s wrong right now, only that I take less time to read than I used to, say 6 months ago. Reading for me is a way to grow, to break barriers, to learn new things and change the way I look at things. Having a to read shelf is not threathening. It doesn’t make me feel guilty but this shelf is a constant reminder of new things to discover. A gentle reminder of the wonder of reading and learning.
