Librarians, booksellers, booklovers : we all know the SOB, the Stack of Books (to read).
In French we call it the PAL (la pile à lire).
You know this, right? You just bought a book, or you’re just being stung by a subject (thus you picked up some books in your shelves).
- It can be a couple of books, but it can be two dozens, or a whole shelf, yeeeesh.
- It can be a real stack, or a stack… in your mind.
- You can read them in order, or begin all of them all – so there!
- While you attack your stack, you’ll probably add more books on it.
Yes, it’s sisyphian.
It leads me to this (if it’s a pattern) : Don’t we all have other “stacks”? Things to do? Things to think about (when I have a little time alone)? Things to talk about when I’m with this person? Clothes (to iron, obviously)? Methods? Recipes? How do we choose into a stack ?
Isn’t a stack a list made real?…
Here’s my current one. I invite you to post yours in the comments 🙂
Have a nice day!
