It’s been a tiring week for me, but I managed to read a couple of books: Stoner by John Williams, Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell, and William – An Englishman by Cicely Hamilton (review up tomorrow).
Yesterday, I also started Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. If I manage to finish that, I want to start J. K. Rowling’s Casual Vacancy.
The weather has been fairly nice this week up until rain yesterday, but I was tired and sluggish most of the week so I haven’t run since Wednesday. Hopefully, I can do my usual 7km today and then have a nice long sleep before my last week of this job. I’m excited as I bought my ticket to New York this week as well.
In other bookish news, all the books I bought last week are in a giant pile by my library books. I have these piles on the floor by my desk because I lack space. I’ve had to put some of my read novels in my clothing closet since I have no book shelf space for them anymore.
What happens when you run out of space for books? Do they pile out around you?
Book stacks seem to be a problem everywhere in blogging world. Good luck with yours. I’m familiar with books stacked on the floor, although I’ve made a dent in that one with my book purging.

Here’s MY SUNDAY UPDATES/MAILBOX MONDAY
Hi Laurel! It’s that time of year I guess. I stack them high and mighty. They are at least a reminder for me to curb my book spending habits for some time. Thanks for stopping by!
I am rather good at clearing out books once I start to run out of space. I only keep books I know I will want to re-read. If not I pass them on to friends and family, or donate them to charity shops.
Hi Jessica! I am the same except my problem is the acquisition of books. I buy them about 4x faster than I read them. I’ve put a lot of the books I want to reread in my closet. Hope you have a good week!
