Tsundoku – a word for all bibliophiles

A dear friend gave me the book Lost in Translation. It’s full of interesting words in different languages that are unique to a specific language or culture.

Today, I’m sharing the word tsundoku which is a Japanese word for leaving a book unread. This basically describes my TBR shelves; yes I have more than one! 📚

I have read more books this year, than in recent memory, as I have more time now than I did previously. That does NOT mean my to-be-read pile is shrinking! It’s like a chacha – one step forward and two steps back! 📚📚📚📚📚

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.
