"What proportion of the books you own are unread?"Oh, my goodness! "Most of them" sounds terrible, but I have lots of nonfiction that are related to books I am studying. Not all my reading is for distraction. In fact, most of the books I keep are for me to use when quoting in class or to footnote what I write. I rarely keep novels, which I read for pleasure. Those are the ones I borrow from the library, so they don't take up space on my very full bookshelves. The photo above shows the tall bookcase beside my desk. It probably isn't much of an exaggeration to say I could read from my own shelves for the rest of my life!
