I think that's what the picture above implied.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Yeah, I read just The Road without the On. Anyways. I have both now. And also three other books to read before I even begin to start these.

An accurate description of most of the books I own.  Conservative estimate says there are 25 still waiting to be read.

I probably have 60+ books that I have bought that I need to read, no joke, I need to stop

I wonder if that's better than having 60+ books that you've started and then put down. I swear it takes me so much effort to finish a book. For every two or three I start, I finish one.

I know the feeling, although I have more like 40+ I've bought and haven't read.

but even if you read a book a week you wouldn't be through with them all by the end of the year...madness.  :o
