I remember this thread from a few years back, and I can't see that anyone has posted anything recently, so I'm giving it a comeback!

As the title says, I've got tons on my Kindle and physical books, but whenever I seem to see one on Amazon for 99p I never seem to resist, even though I've got loads to get through!

Anyone else in?

    Gosh yes... I have a5/6 physical books I'm starting to work through and over 100 unread books on my kindle. I hate to think how many are on my am@zon list (hundreds) but occassionally I'll filter by price and then buy 10 or so more... so I have to stop this until I actually read the ones I have!

    I'm in!

  • I did a count up with my daughter over Christmas, I have 90-odd unread physical books at home.  Charity shops have a lot to answer for!!!

    I started this again at the new year.  So far I've read 4 books and finished an audio book.

    I've discovered I'm not as keen on audiobooks, and kindle books arent for me.  I prefer my physical books.  SO it's just a physical huge to be read pile I've to whittle down.
