Confessions of an Addict (7): A Bookshelf’s Letter to its Owner.

Dear Joy,

Hi! Remember us? We’re a group of awesome books that you sold your soul to the devil for to obtain…okay, not really. Anyway, we can’t help but notice that you’ve been amassing some great reads – well, you haven’t really read them yet – but we’ve been down here waiting for you *dusts self off*.


Your Indie shelf.

Dear Joy,

Do you remember one day when you were having one of those must organize bookshelf day? Your words were:

{in a falsetto voice} I’m going to put you all in front of this shelf so I can read you right away…

Sigh. We are feeling no love.


Your Must-Read-Now Shelf.

Dear Joy,

We think there may be some misunderstanding. If you recall, you grouped us together so you can finally read us according to the succession of our series. But lately, we’ve noticed that you’ve been reading sporadically.

So what’s the deal?

Dusty and Confused,

Your Incomplete, Unfinished, Unread Series Bookshelf.

Me thinks I’ve finally lost it…
  • LOL!These letters are hilarious! Seriously, you are AWESOME.

  • Haha! Love this post. I imagine my bookshelf would have something similar to say to me. I remember neatly organising my indie books on a separate shelf so that I could get to them immediately and start reading and reviewing them. But then I got caught up with reading thick tomes like A Game of Thrones (to gain background before watching the TV series)and Affluenza by Oliver James (because my friend shoved it into my hands and insisted that I had to give it a try). Now I'm busy with course reading, so I still haven't touched my indie shelf *guilty*.

  • LOL, love it – what a great post.
    You have so many great books too *eyes shelves and stares in jealousy*

  • Thanks, ladies! I knew someone will understand me. Lol.

  • I love looking at your shelves. You have sooo many gorgeous books. I hope you'll get to them soon and that they won't feel this neglected for too long. 😀


  • Bahaha, this is brilliant! I think my bookshelves would say very similar things!

  • LOL! I liked Your Must-Read-Now Shelf's letter the best! I use to think that it was weird and silly that people who buy tons of books have piles of unread books. I remember thinking that if it was me, I would have finished all those books in record time or something. Now that I started buying books, well, I understand. I'm now a proud owner of a small pile of unread books.
